15,000 SCIENTISTS URGE CITIZENS TO ADOPT PLANT-BASED DIET 11/17/2017

A viewpoint article published by the Alliance of World Scientists (AWS) in October outlined the increasing importance of changing human behavior to avoid environmental destruction. The current article is an update to a 1992 paper published by the Union of Concerned Scientists warning the public that current human practices would soon lead to devastating conditions such as ocean acidification and dead zones, ozone depletion, decreased freshwater availability, marine-life depletion, forest loss, and biodiversity destruction. The new document builds on the previous warning, but with more urgency, by outlining how the aforementioned negative environmental trends have accelerated in the past 25 years. The warning—which was signed by 15,000 scientists from 184 countries—further recommends adopting and promoting a plant-based diet to reduce environmental degradation. (vegnews.com)
