Answer: stop using animals for food. Animal agriculture causes 40% of #climatechange , 90% of rainforest deforestation, At LEAST 50% of all health care costs, 40% of all water use, and 80% of antibiotic resistance. Oh, and it also causes the deaths of 100 billion land animals and over 200 billion aquatic animals every year. We have a choice: destroy ourselves and the only home we know, or stop using animals for food. Credist: @moby
Factory farming leads to deforestation as 45% of all the ice free land is LIVESTOCK. Hence, I knew it.. “A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use. “It is far bigger than cutting down on your flights or buying an electric car,” he explained, which would only reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” Credits: @sootheplanet
Sid and Scrat @westwoodcross #thanet. Ice age characters saying hello. The story evolves around some prehistoric creatures moving away from habitats that are become colder and migrating south. A story from 20 thousands years ago being very realistic today.#climate-change #anthropocene#icemelt#anthropomorphism
After being hunted to near extinction in the first half of the last century, the Mediterranean's endangered Loggerhead and Green turtles are making a comeback thanks to pioneering conservation efforts, Cypriot marine biologists say. When those efforts began in 1978, there were just 300 turtle nests on the island's beaches where the reptiles return to lay their eggs. The population has grown to around 1,100 nests last year, said Andreas Demetropoulos, the founder and co-head of a turtle conservation program under the island-nation's Fisheries and Marine Research Department. That may not sound a lot, but with the turtles' reproductive cycles stretching out as long as three decades, the results are "quite spectacular," said Demetropoulos.
Did you know wind energy is expected to meet 1/3 of global demand by 2050? This compact tower, which consists of a wind turbine ＋ a solar panel, generates electricity from both the sun and from vehicles passing by. Just 1 tower can supply electricity for 2 households! Tag someone who would use this! 🙋♂️🙋🏽♀️
Did you know that plastic can take up to 1000 years to decompose? With plastic, there is no such thing as out of sight, out of mind. Additionally, only 91% of plastic is recycled. 🥤🥡🍬🛍 What can you do? . 🍬 Refuse single-use plastic: Refuse plastic bags, bottles, cups, cutlery, straws, plates, ... and invest in reusable alternatives. They save tons of waste and money, think of how many plastic bottles you don’t have to throw away when you have a reusable one. . 🍬 Shop plastic-free and in bulk: Shop loose produce without plastic packaging. Go to the farmer’s market or bulk stores and bring your own containers. Refuse to buy unnecessarily packaged foods. . 🍬 Repair & Recycle: Many things can be easily repaired or recycled and don’t always need to be disposed of immediately. Consider borrowing, renting, or buying vintage or second-hand when you need something. Where do you try to save plastic in your everyday routine? Where do you struggle?
