WE SPILL THEIR BLOOD NEEDLESSLY and in the process destroy our environment. Tell me again how intelligent humans are?
We often forget that our actions on land always affect the ocean. The destruction, however, largely happens out of sight and out of mind. For example, animal agriculture is seriously impacting our waterways and ocean yet few people know it. Yes the treatment of the animals is ghastly – and that is reason enough to avoid purchasing animal products– but there is also an impact on the ocean.
Slaughterhouse and Farm waste doesn’t stay on farms… for example animals are fed an endless stream of antibiotics and hormones, which are excreted and end up in our waterways and ocean. The scale on which farms produce animal waste creates nitrogen shocks to the environment, encouraging disease outbreak and destructive algae blooms. What is the result of all this on the ocean?
Nutrients in animal waste cause algal blooms, which use up oxygen in the water, contributing to a “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico where there’s not enough oxygen to support aquatic life. The dead zone fluctuates in size each year, extending a record 8,500 square miles during the summer of 2002 and stretching over 7,700 square miles during the summer of 2010.
Animal agriculture contributes direcly to sea temperature rise and ocean acidificationthe rising atmospheric temperature is raising global ocean temperatures leading to widespread coral bleaching. (Bleaching slows coral growth, makes them susceptible to disease, and leads to large-scale reef die-off). Second, a greater concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing the acidity of the global ocean, handicapping the extensive roster of marine organisms that build shells or skeletons.
The story of animal agriculture is all about externalising costs and exploiting nature.They don’t want us to know, too much money goes around in animal agriculture. Are you going to let a few that profit from animal agriculture destroy our planet?
