A question for you…
Namaste Everyone! Today, I don’t want to delve into any particular topic or an ideological concept that we, vegans, seek to promote. Instead, I want to pose a question to you all. You are welcome to leave your thoughts in the comments below, I am genuinely curious as to what you all have to say. So, think about this:
During this time of unprecedented time of pandemic and global change, we have seen many issues come to light. We have seen issues surfacing from an economic standpoint: many individuals are out of work and have no means to pay for their families. We have seen issues relating to healthcare access and insurance: many individuals who have contracted the Coronavirus have no means to pay for it. And then there are underlying issues that have been battered on, pushed further, and been discussed because of the pandemic. A major one that I am talking about here is the climate crisis: as a result of the inactivity caused by the virus, our planet has seen days of globally reduced pollution. Incidences like fish in Venice’s over-polluted waterways beginning to be seen and the sighting of the Himalayas from as far as 100 miles in India has made it safe to say that we, as a human population, have the ability to cure the global warming. But here is where the discrepancy lies and where I pose my question to you all. How do you save the environment and the economy at the same time? How do we provide jobs and reduce carbon emissions at the same time? For a long time now, humans have been focusing on the economical standpoint and often brush off the climate crisis as though it doesn’t matter. But it does matter. And sooner rather than later, the future generations will have to come face-to-face with this issue, and, by then, it may be too late. One of the goals that plant-based experts and vegans have is to better our world: some of us want to save the animals, some of us want to reduce carbon emissions, and some of us just really like plants. But I can tell you that if we don’t act now, we won’t see a bright future for this planet anytime soon.
