How Soon Can Earth Rebound? - 2008
Therefore, when I visited Karech in December 2008, I asked the villagers to take me to the protected land so that I can see it for myself. I took this picture of the stone fence - to the left, animals including old cows were wandering around grazing and to the right, is the protected land - and immediately decided to Go Vegan, on the spot. I realized that as a lacto-vegetarian, I had a worse environmental impact than even a meat-eater. I was causing cows to be constantly impregnated to produce milk, and then letting those cows live for 25 years eating up the forest. Unlike India, in a beef-eating society such as the US, dairy cows are ruthlessly killed at the age of 5 or 6 years and ground up into hamburgers.
