Since I have always been a highly optimistic, glass half-FULL kind of guy, it disappoints me to hear that my writing is focused too much on doom and gloom kinds of topics.
My response: In addition to being an optimist, I am also a realist and feel that I am one of a very small group of people who fully understands the "big picture" about our food choices--and why they are so important. That said, I believe that, until things start turning around with
regards to sustainability--I should continue to be that "relentless drumbeat" that you can depend on to tell you the unadulterated truth.
We only have one home--our food choices can save it for our children.
So where is that good news? I am beginning two major presentations with that topic later this month, leading off with this statement:
Our food choices give us
Regarding their singular power to promote health, hope and harmony on planet Earth.
There are four major hurdles between the human species and sustainability, and only one of them can be resolved quickly--our food choices. The other three will take decades, if not centuries to fix: Overpopulation, Over-Consumption and our Over-dependence on Fossil Fuels.
Urgently shifting NOW toward a plant-based diet for humans can
buy us the time we need to solve those other huge sustainability issues.
