Meat-eaters Are Not True Environmentalists

We just returned from a National Geographic guided tour of Alaska aboard the ship Sea Bird. The food served was all McDougall style: low-fat, vegan, and starch-based (with some very rich desserts—an option). The cruise line, Lindblad Expeditions, referred to us as “the vegan, no oil charter.” Every aspect of this McDougall Adventure trip was excellent.
 
This was my third trip to Alaska (1993, 2001, and 2016). Massive melting of the glaciers was obvious and a topic frequently discussed among our group. However, our National Geographic guides, including one national park ranger, seldom mentioned the connection between global warming caused by human activities and the threat to these northern lands. Dwelling on this topic may have detracted from the travelers’ enjoyment of their trip. I suppose no one wants to hear about the changes we all need to make in order to keep our planet healthy.
 
However, the “food card” is the most essential one to play now in order for us to have some breathing room so that we can fix other issues like transportation and energy. Overnight the world’s human population could change from animal foods to starches (beans, corn, potatoes, rice, wheat, etc.) for the bulk of our calories. We could!
