James Cameron Challenges Environmentalists to Go Vegan

Last week we reported that “Avatar” director and environmentalist James Cameron adopted a plant based diet for the good of the planet. Thanks to a new video posted by “Earthlings”, we now see that he’s spreading the message far and wide. He’s challenging us all to remove animal products from our diets.

In the 28 second clip he says, “You can’t be an environmentalist, you can’t be an ocean steward without truly walking the walk and you can’t walk the walk in the world of the future, the world ahead of us, the world of our children, not eating a plant based diet.”

Animal rights supporters and vegans have often grumbled about the lack of dietary changes and talk of plant based diets amongst environmentalists. Considering animal agriculture accounts for more greenhouse gases than all of transportation combined, it seems like giving up burgers and milkshakes is the least we can do. While eating local and organic is common in the green world, giving up animal products is more rare but more impactful. Perhaps a massive and respected voice like Cameron’s will inspire eco-warriors to take the challenge and switch to a plant based diet for the good of this big blue planet. She needs all the help she can get.

Check out the full clip of Cameron.

    If you live in a large city, going vegan is very easy. If you don’t, it’s very difficult. I’d have to give up eating out entirely. I’d have to prepare everyone of my meals from scratch. It’s very easy to sit in an apartment in NYC or some other city and talk about how the world should go vegan when it may not be a realistic option for many people. Cutting back on animal products I can see but going vegan in a small town is not a realistic option unless I had an enormous amount of free time on my hands with which to prepare vegan meals.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
