We applaud the EPA's recognition of the health and environmental consequences of climate change as enumerated and projected in the agency's new "Climate Change Adaptation Plan", designed to integrate climate change adaptation into EPA's programs, policies, rules, and operations, and about which the public can comment through April 8 .
The world's most-esteemed scientists and renowned universities and institutions, including NASA, the United Nations, and the World Bank, irrefutably identify animal agriculture - the production and consumption of "meat", dairy, fish, and eggs - as the leading contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for 51% of all such emissions - greater than all other human activity combined - as calculated by the prestigious UN agency, the WorldWatch Institute, in the Goodland and Anhang study "Livestock and Climate Change - What If the Key Actors in Climate Change Are Cows, Pigs, and Chickens?"
Leading environmental thinkers tell us that mass public adoption of a vegan lifestyle is the only practical adaptation to climate change challenges, as a conversion to an alternative energy infrastructure is cost prohibitive and untimely.
It is now apparent and transparent that the health and environmental responsibilities of the EPA to protect air, land, and water require it to to include vegan implementation and education in its programs, policies, rules, and operations, and we concerned citizens demand that EPA advise Americans to GO VEGAN to save us from climate change, and that the EPA set a leading example by immediately converting all of its cafeterias, eating facilities, and food programs to vegan only.
