There’s something known as species discrimination. Humans have been very discriminatory and have treated other species with disregard, not considering the impact this has created. Factory farming is a hot topic for me. Animals are put in bad situations; they are given antibiotics. Our method of mass farming has created toxic groundwater and toxic land and contamination of food sources. Scientists recently gathered to talk about this because they are concerned it could cause a “super bug.” That’s the bad news; the good news is a lot of people are awake and aware of this. Some good things are being done. For example, Aspen, Colorado instituted something call “Meat-free Mondays where all the local restaurants are presenting vegetarian or vegan entrees. More and more people who choose to eat beef and other livestock are demanding grass-fed, which is more humane and healthier. We are more aware of what our human and global impact is doing to animals. More people are doing organic farming, shopping locally, and making choices to improve those things.
I want to talk about what is happening with animals in the ocean and then I’m going to give you some tools. There’s a practice called “shark-finning,” which has caused the annihilation of millions of sharks. Eighty percent of the Earth’s surface is water. These sharks are predators that keep eco-balance in the seas. As they have been annihilated, a species—a mainstay food source for the sharks and emits a lot of greenhouse gases—is thriving in abundance. If we can pay more attention to our friends in the ocean, it will be for the benefit of all of us.
