Apart from the fact, that we as human beings, are creating an utmost level of cruelty to animals and other earthlings we share the planet with, we must also understand this as a matter of fact. We are creating more havoc on the planet we are living in. We are allowing the milch animals to graze by the billions. And this is the direct impact of excessive emission of greenhouse gases. Say, for instance, you have methane, nitrous oxides and CO2 these animals let out during their sustenance. In this particular blog, I am going to highlight the environmental downsides of animal farming. Let us get started on the same:
We have discussed this via quite a lot of blogging snippets, as a matter of fact. However, let me explain what is being done. This is for those of you who have missed out on my previous blogs.
Raising animals just to satisfy the needs and individual requirements of human beings is what animal agriculture is broadly classified as. We raise animals mainly for their meat, milk, and eggs. When you raise milch animals like cows, buffaloes, and sheep, they require green pastures to graze. Again, sheep are reared for the wool industry. Subsequently, the discarded sheep, are sent to slaughterhouses for their meat. Lambs are also used in the industry. Hence, in tightly packed conditions, the animals stay in sheds or houses. Animal farmers artificially breed these animals. In other words, we multiply the population of milch and poultry animals to satiate our demands for meat, milk, and eggs.
Take the dairy industry for example. When hundreds or thousands of cows stay at the same Godown shed, they can fart bloatedly. This is how these animals let out nitrous oxides or methane gases. Methane is the single main contributor to excessive greenhouse emissions. The methane emissions pollute the layers of the atmosphere, which is a direct contributor to the discovery of a hole across the ozone layers. The greenhouse gases let out by the animal agriculture industry supersede the vehicular emissions let out by all vehicles of the world put together.
Again, at the same industry, these animals stay amid their own feces and urine. The evaporated feces can again contribute to greenhouse emissions. The same thing happens in the pig, poultry, and other animal farming industries around the globe.
We have seen different forms of environmental hazards as a result of animal agriculture. Veganism is the only way to create a sustainable life on Planet Earth. We can revive the imbalance we have created on account of going against the forces of Mother Nature.
