Thursday Meatout to Fight Global Warming

A few friends and I had a short conversation
at the Aljunied MRT station after Dharma class last night.

We were complaining how the weather had gone so warm
and one of us was even wondering how life is going to be
if the 35C daily temp is going to stay on..

When the train arrived,
we hastily rushed in to grab the cool air cond.
That subsequently triggered the remark of
how air cond is even more crucial these days.

However, taking one step back,
looking at the big picture,
it's not hard discover that air cond doesn't really solve the
escalating warm climate
-- in fact it will aggravate the situation,
and slump into a viscious cycle..

The weather 'warming' up is actually a warning sign from Mother Earth,
expecting us do something, not shying away from the problem...

So I took the opportunity to bring up the topic of
meat-induced global warming/warning.
I suggested to cut meat consumption by 10%
and explained that it's more signficant
than many other measures (e.g. less driving, less plastics etc)
due to the gigantic carbon food print of meat production.

Rachel who was among the conversation,
added that it could be easily done by refraining from meat just once a week,
like the Meatout Thursday that NUS students are campaigning.

I applauded =)

Happy Thursday Meatout,
