Jane Goodall and Alec Baldwin discuss importance of Plant-Based Diet

ONE GREEN PLANET
by Natasha Brooks

This year’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco got pretty heated (no pun intended). Between California Governor Jerry Brown calling President Donald Trump a “liar, criminal, fool” and protestors rallying outside against fossil fuel extraction, despite the governor signing into law the state’s commitment to 100 percent clean energy by 2045 this week, the event was certainly not lacking in high emotion.

But on a cooler note, actors Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin and everyone’s favorite primatologist, Jane Goodall, were also present at the Summit, and Baldwin and Goodall sat down for a chat on the importance of plant-based diets in regards to forests and the fight against climate change.

And although a primatologist and an actor may seemingly have little in common, the two celebrities have one very important commonality — they are advocates for the environment and promote ditching meat for the sake of the planet.

Goodall and Baldwin both ditch meat from their diets and credit environmental concerns as reasoning for it.

Animal agriculture is a leading contributor to climate change, being responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector (cars, planes, trains, etc.) combined. In fact, a recent study revealed that animal agriculture is more harmful to the environment than fossil fuel extractors like Shell and Exxon Mobil. . .

If everyone adopted a plant-based diet, then yes, we could certainly meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and keep our planet’s temperature from rising those two more dangerous degrees. Read more at One Green Planet »

Plant-Based Diet vs Vegan Diet

What’s the difference? A big one. We are grateful of course that both Goodall and Baldwin have “ditched meat” from their diets, but please let us not confuse what these two diet types — plant based and vegan — are about. These diet regimens are not interchangeable.

“Vegans abstain from eating any animal products. A whole foods plant-based diet, on the other hand, emphasizes eating whole fruits and vegetables, consuming lots of whole grains, and staying away from (or at least minimizing) the intake of animal products and processed foods for health reasons.” SeeThere’s A Big Difference Between A Plant-Based Diet And A Vegan Diet“, Huffington Post, By Julie R. Thomson, 22 June 2017.

Horses

What does a plant-based diet or a vegan diet have to do with horses? Horse meat. If people were to give up horse meat and quit eating it, there would be no horse slaughter which would put an end to all of the horrendous cruelties that go with it.

But as you can see by definition you could eat a plant-based diet yet still garnish a meal with a serving of horse meat. So we say. Go vegan. For life!

Thank you.

Sputnik News reports:

Scientists found an amazingly preserved 40,000 year old “baby horse” in the Siberian Permafrost.

The ancient foal was found in the permafrost of the Batagaika depression, also known as the “Gateway to the Underworld,” by Russian and Japanese scientists, and is expected to give researchers a wealth of new information on how horses evolved at a time when human beings were still mere hunter-gatherers.

The 40,000-year-old foal, believed to have passed away when she was just three months, was completely preserved by the permafrost before being discovered. It is now believed to be the world’s only fully-preserved ancient baby horse.

Discovered by scientists from the Scientific Research Institute of Applied Ecology of Russia’s North at North-Eastern Federal University, and researchers from the Japanese University of Kindai, along with a Fuji TV film crew, the Paleolithic find is believed to be a treasure trove of invaluable scientific information.

“The particular value of this unique find is that we have also obtained samples from the layers of soil where [she] laid preserved, meaning we will be able to restore a picture of the foal’s environment,” Semyon Grigoryev, the head of the renowned Mammoth Museum in Yakutsk, said, according to a university press release.
