For a long time I had been privy to the affect of animal agriculture on climate change. It's impact is by far the highest on the environment even though it is a little known contributor. However, it was only in August last year that I was finally convinced to go vegetarian in order to make an impact. I think because in Western society we are the ones who will least feel the impact of climate change it is easy to dismiss for the instant gratification of a steak of taking for granted our resources. But the injustice of that concept is so large and given our unwillingness in the current political climate who suffer as a result I realised that because my bubble of ignorance had been burst, it would almost be barbaric not to take action. Out of sight, out of mind is simply not good enough.
