The problem of global warming, which is also contributed by factory farming affects already now all people, despite the fact you eat meat or not. “If being the number one contributor to the most serious threat facing the planet (global warming) isn't enough, what is? “(Foer 123): the citation from the book has its point. Animal agriculture makes a 40% greater contribution to global warming than all transportation in the world combined; it is the number one cause of climate
The documentary Cowspiracy, overall, wants to tell us about the truth behind animal agriculture, which heavily affects the survival of our planet. Basically, the documentary said that animal agriculture is responsible for most of the greenhouse gases that lead to global warming, which also affects our planet. The goal of this documentary is to make us believe that the meat industry, and by extension the fast food industry, are the causes that lead to most of our environmental issues. Also, the documentary stated that the amount of water that is used for cows and other livestock is way too much and our planet will gradually face a lack of water. The solution that they propose is just to become vegetarians, which will solve everything.
Animals shouldn’t have to suffer, living in the plant factory is unfair and brutal. All animals have feelings, they have a right to kind treatment, and a right to live in this world. The meat packing industry disregards animal’s emotions and their rights all together by the malicious treatment of animals. The way animals are being treated is highly unfair. Being slaughtered for their body parts and suffering just to be used for protein or an asset to humans is unbearable.
The only gain that the animals earned from the use of violence was negative human attributes, which led to the collapse of their utopic society. Napoleon’s use of authoritarian tactics to govern the farm demonstrates how humans have the potential to become brutal and hurt others to acquire and protect their privileges. Such a behavior undermines and hinders the preservation of a utopic society. In Life of Pi, Pi begins Chapter 8 with a statement: “[...] the most dangerous animal in a zoo is Man. In a general way we mean how our species’ excessive predatoriness has made the entire planet our prey” (Martel 38).
Think about the poison that’s harming the ones who eat the whale meat. Think about the people who don’t know what they’re eating. Most importantly, think about the harmless whales. So, stand up and fight to put an end to
By needs, these creatures are being tortured or killed for the products we use. How would you feel if we were to trade places with these animals for experiments? Wouldn’t it be the same thing since animals are living things too? Animals can suffer like humans do, so it is speciesism to experiment on them while we refrain from experimenting on humans. According to Dr Hadwen Trust (n.d.) from Cruelty Free International, at least 115 million animals would be used in experiments worldwide each year and as a responsible human being, we have to put a stop to this
Roger Chillingworth directs his evil toward Arthur Dimmesdale. He tries to keep Dimmesdale in his misery so that the pain inside of him will fester and it will slowly kill him. Chillingworth’s goal is to keep Dimmesdale in his own pain so it only affects him. While Chillingworth’s evil only affects one person, Ahab’s evil affects the entire shipping crew and everything around the ship. When Ahab decides to only kill Moby Dick, it cuts down all of the crew members paychecks.
This is hardly the strongest evidence that meat processing and handling is an extremely flawed system. Animals are often killed inhumanely if they are unable to be used by the manufacturers because they do not want to have to go through the process of giving them to a farm. Another equally important issue is how painful the slaughtering process is for the animals. Within most slaughterhouses, “Hogs, unlike cattle, are dunked in tanks of hot water after they are stunned to soften the hides of skinning. As a result, a botched slaughter condemns some hogs to be scalded and drowned.
After I read through the Silent Spring, I felt like the environment we are living in and the relationship between human and natural are getting worse. The book basically talks about many different topics based on the chemical pollution, which is the problem that the society faces nowadays and also lets us know that the pollution is caused by those chemicals, such as DDT, which is a kind of pesticide widely used on farmlands but also fatally. DDT can also get into human’s blood, sperm, even breast milk. Therefore, abuse of the chemicals will affect agriculture and industry problems. The book also introduces different kinds of chemicals such as the chemical pesticides, insecticide as well as the effects of those.
To just kill someone you love. It’s almost like murdering your closest friend or your family member. It is cruel, just cruel to animals. It is killing a large amount of animals, and not just wild ones, scientists even kill dogs, hamsters, and other house pets too! One of the reasons animals should not be tested on is because there are tons of animals suffering and gasping for air from scientists giving animals drugs, just to see if the drug worked.
According to Nicholas Kristof author of “Cleaning the Henhouse” one of the main problems within industrial agriculture is that it is harmful to all human beings. The prime example that Nicholas gives is the increasing rate of salmonella outbreaks in the United States. Salmonella outbreaks are due to the improper care of hens from what they’re being fed down to the environment they’re kept in. Kristof finds it important to respond to this epidemic because it has a direct impact on human health. In addition to identifying a national problem he goes on to propose that the most effective solution would be to ban the usage of cages in chicken farming.
The author of this article is Mark Bittman. This article is about American’s meat consumption and the health and environmental problems that come with it. Mark’s argument is that Americans should cut down on meat consumption, because it causes environmental problems, health problems and a lower standard on animal welfare. The first point Mark presents is that meat consumption causes environmental problems. He proves, and strengthens his point by having a professor validate his point “When you look at environmental problems in the U.S, nearly all of them have their source in food production and in particular meat production” (Professor Eshel).
It is brutal and immoral to kill animals for food while there is a plenty of rich nutritional non-animal food. All animals are warm-blooded beings that have emotion and feeling therefore, they can experience fear, shock, and pain. Animal slaughter is a significant issue. “In the United States about 35 million cows, 115 million pigs, and 9 billion birds are killed for food each year” (Procon.org). How can so many people want to kill animals just because of their tasty meat?
