Subject: Re: Greenpeace volunteers still on Parliament as MPs arrive
It was terrific to see thirty-one Greenpeace volunteers on the roof of
Parliament as MPs arrived for their first day back after the summer
I was more amazed to see that out of as many as '12 simple steps the
UK can take to save the climate' not a single one addressed the
serious impact of livestock production and the simple solution of
consuming less (or no) livestock products.
We've got less than two months until the global summit on climate
change and so far bold action has been trumped by short term
interests. It's our generation that must take charge and save our
climate. And we can, but the clock is ticking.
The clock is indeed ticking. There is no time left for diet deniers.
By effectively ignoring livestock issues, many environmental groups
and climate campaigners are allowing that all possible steps to
mitigate climate chaos are NOT being pursued.
If you haven't already, please send a message to your Greenpeace
compadres today and urge them to commit to addressing the dietary
changes that are needed to save the climate and the planet.
You can also watch a slideshow featuring a few simple but scary facts
and figures, find out more and follow the references at
If you've already changed your diet, don't make a donation to support
our campaign for personal action to save our climate, spend it instead
on sharing a vegan meal with a friend.
Thank you for interest and congratulations to everyone up on the roof.

Why have you received this email?
Either because you have sent me a Greenpeace e-bulletin with no
information on the devastating effects of livestock production on the
climate, on food and water shortages, and on the health of the planet
and all its inhabitants, or because you are one of the all too few
groups working hard for genuine social change to save the planet.
