I do think we need leadership on a global scale, but I am less hopeful that this will be the message from the COP21 talks. The good news is that people are catching on. Movies like Cowspiracy are helping to shine a light on the elephant in the room.
This was a big year for veganism hitting the mainstream conscious. This week we saw a great example: I may not agree with Arnold Schwarzenegger on many things but he does know a lot about bodybuilding, and now even he says A) we don't need meat to build muscle and B) we'd all be better off if we ate less meat.
You don't need meat to grow strong and heathy
"Luckily we know that you can get your protein from many different ways. You can get it from vegetables; I have seen many bodybuilders and lifters that are vegetarian and get strong and healthy and many who eat meat who get strong and healthy." - Arnold Schwarzenegger.One protein source feels pain and is linked to the increased risk of many diseases, and has awful environmental consequences, the other protein source (plants) does not... It's an easy choice.
