HOLIDAY CARD 1999

 

The 1999 holiday card addressed the lives of non-human animals and the environment.

 

We live on a gigantic farm, one occasionally broken up by cities, forests and oceans. There is no other single human activity that has a bigger impact on the planet than the raising of livestock. Livestock production — which includes meat, milk and eggs — uses one-third of the world’s fresh water. About 30% of the world’s total ice-free surface is used not to raise grains, fruits and vegetables that would be directly fed to human beings, but to support the chickens, pigs and cattle that humans eat. A staggering 51% of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture. According to a United Nations report, a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change. 

The quote on the card is by Issac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991)
