DANG. That’ll get the message across. The movement is gaining momentum!

cats-explained:

jeanmarcoing:

did that fucker just jump on water is this fucking cat jesus

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS IS HAPPENING MEOW

(But please don’t let cats drink pool water and don’t be mean to them by pushing them into bodies of water! We don’t have a sense of humor like humans do! It’s just very upsetting to even the happiest cat, and it can be downright traumatizing to high-anxiety ones, meow! Plus, even shorthair cats can have undercoats so dense that it takes up to 24 hours or more for them to dry, and they might experience skin irritation or even skin/respiratory/ear infections! And that’s just terrible meow! What is it you humans say? It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt? Please be nice to us! Mew mew!)

If you mew-ve fast enough with your weight spread over the surface of the water, you can skim right across the top of it. Like a basilisk lizard or these guys.

(It looks like the cat was startled, not pushed, which would account for how fast s/he was flying)

this is very cute, and i don’t think cats should drink chlorine (or be pushed into pools, if this cat was), but actually i think that’s rain water that collected in the pool cover.

Q
In your idea of a perfect world, no animals would be killed/eaten right? So the entire planet would be surviving on what? How long do you think this world would last like that?

This is a great question. As cool as it would be if everyone decided to go vegan, it wouldn’t happen overnight. As more people decide to switch to a humane and compassionate lifestyle, the demand for animal products starts to decline. When this happens, farmers start breeding less animals for consumption.

What effect does this have on the environment?

  • Less carbon dioxide emission (if one person exchanges eating meat for a vegan diet, they’ll reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year)
  • less methane production (chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows are collectively the largest producer of methane in the U.S.)
  • less nitrus oxide (the meat, egg, and dairy industries produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions)
  • not to mention that 1 calorie from animal protein requires 11 times as much fossil fuel as one calorie of plant protein
  • and the diets of meat eaters create 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diets of vegans
  • nearly half of all water used in the United States goes to raising animals for food. it takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat (1 pound of wheat requires 25 gallons)
  • you’d save more water by not eating one pound of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 months
  • raising animals for food uses 30% of the earth’s land mass (that’s about the same size as Asia! approx. 17 Million sq. miles. to give you another point of reference, the moon has less area than that, at 14.6 million square miles)
  • more than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals

Why is raising animals for food so inefficient?

  • 70% of grain and cereals grown in U.S. are fed to farmed animals
  • it requires 16 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of meat

What does eating meat have to do with people starving in other countries?

  • every ounce of water, grain and resources that goes towards an animal who will ultimately be slaughtered is an ounce of water or grain that could have gone to those who so desperately need it. a study published earlier this year in the journal Environmental Research Letters analyzed the world’s agriculture resource data and found that humans cutting meat from their diets could play a significant role in combating world hunger. According to the researchers, 36 percent of the total calories that come from crops are allocated to farm animal feed, but only 12 percent of those calories actually make it to people’s dinner plates. The researchers concluded that if all of the world’s crops were directly consumed by humans, there would be approximately 70 percent more food available, providing sustenance for an additional 4 billion additional people.

Check out this article, in which the UN is urging a global shift towards a vegan diet -

"A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today.

As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management.”

So, in short, if the planet begins to move towards a vegan diet, our planet would last much longer, there would be better food opportunities for people who don’t get enough, there would be less damage done to the environment, there would be less disease, and maybe the other sentient beings on this planet will finally be treated with the respect they deserve.

Perfect response.

Yess. I’M GOING VEGAN

Good for u dude :)

awesome
