Of course, the *real* root problem is the number of people on the planet, yet, sadly, people from across the political spectrum all insist on having more and more children. Bottom line, anyone who cares about the environment, but had kids, is a hypocrite.Tom Hurst –Aug 29, 2012 14:19:07 PM
Thank you for a worthwhile discussion. We can no longer ignore what is happening to our earth's resources. After all, we will be eventually handing it all over to our descendants one day.
I have made the switch to a plant-based diet, primarily for ethical reasons, but I also feel better about not contributing to the earth's destruction by supporting factory farming.Annoula Wylderich –Aug 29, 2012 11:22:48 AM
Thank you for discussing this. I'm vegetarian mainly for animal rights, but I also feel healthier and it's WAY better for the environment too! Water shortage or not, using animals is a waste of resources and life.Roy Rendahl –Aug 29, 2012 10:55:29 AM
