"The hour is late; it's time to decide. I'm quite confident that you will make the choice wisely. In addressing global warming issues, the scientists have made it quite clear." - Ban Ki- Moon, UNITED NATIONS

"We have a climate crisis that is a planetary emergency"

"Our analysis shows that livestock and their byproducts actually account for at least 32,64 million tons of CO2 per year, or 51% of annual worldwide GHG emissions."

"Unless we change our food choices, nothing else matters because it is meat that is destroying most of our forests. It is meat that pollutes the waters. It is meat that is creating diseases, which leads to all our money being diverted to hospitals. So it's a first choice for anybody who wants to save the Earth."
-Maneka Gandhi, politician and environmentalist

"Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to the population growth increasing consumption of animal products. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change away from animal products."

"Action to replace livestock products not only can achieve quick reductions in atmospheric GHGs, but can also reverse the ongoing world food and water crisis."
-Worldwatch Institute

"Climate is defined not simply as avergae temperature and precipitation but also by the type, frequency and intensity of weather events. Human-induced climate change has the potential to alter the prevalence and severity of extremes such as heat waves, cold waves, storms, floods and droughts."
-The United States Environmental Protection Agency

"Livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today's most serious environmental problems. Urgent action is required to remedy the situation."
-Dr Henning Steinfield, Chief of Livestock Information & Policy Branch, FAO, UN<

"Don't eat meat. This is something that the IPCC was afraid to say earlier, but now we have said it: Please eat less meat - meat is a very carbon intensive commodity."
-Dr Rajendra K Pachauri, Head of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

"Livestock is the main driver of deforestation. Livestock is the largest single source of water pollution. Livestock produces more greenhouse gasses than all the worldwide transportation combined."
- Livestock Long Shadow, UN

"LIVESTOCK is the primary human-caused emitter of methane, and methane not only has 72 times the heat-trapping ability, it is a shorter-lived gas. This means that it will leave the atmosphere much faster than CO2, within just a decade as opposed to thousands of years for CO2. Therefore, eliminating methane by eliminating livestock breeding is the fastest way to cool the planet."
-Supreme Master Ching Hai, From Crisis to Peace

"VEGANISM will save our world. Adopting a plant-based diet can halt as much as 80% of global warming, eradicate world hunger, stop war, promote peace, and it will free up the Earth's water as well as many other precious resources, offering a lifeline for the planet and for humanity. In short, it will very quickly halt many of the global problems facing us right now."
-Supreme Master Ching Hai, From Crisis to Peace

"We have the energy to change everything, we have the power to dictate what happens around us, but we must use it. We must use it for the sake of all. We must use it for the benefit of every being on this planet. Our thinking, our action, has to send out a message to the universal energy that we want a better planet, we want a safer life, we want a saved world. Then this universal energy will do just that.
But we have to act in resonance with this energy, you see? If we want good things then we have to do good. If we want life, we have to spare lives.So the good energy we create can do these things, and more wonders. The compassionate, loving atmosphere that we, as the whole world generate, can, and will do more miracles for us."
-Supreme Master Ching Hai, From Crisis to Peace

"I'm positive that our EARTH will reach a higher level of consciousness and miracles will happen under Heaven's mercy."
-Supreme Master Ching Hai, From Crisis to Peace
