Moses Seenarine, Meat Climate Change: The 2nd Leading Cause of Global Warming
Dr. Moses Seenarine is a plant-based, animal abolitionist originally from Georgetown, Guyana, in South America now residing in Long Beach, Ca. He is the author of Meat Climate Change: The 2nd Leading Cause of Global Warming, a book that shows how diet is related to one of the most serious environmental problems humans face, a problem which cannot be solved unless animal consumption is significantly reduced.
Demand for animal products is projected to increase by 50% percent from 2013 to 2025. Even if the world went fossil-free by 2100, increasing animal consumption will continue to cause catastrophic global warming. Yet, livestock emissions are largely ignored and there are no books that focus on assessment of this critical issue. Moses’ book would be useful to anyone interested in learning about climate change, the environment, diet and health, social inequality, and animal-based agribusiness. It is addressed to the general public, educators, social and environmental activists, climate scientists and policy-makers.
Moses created a social media platform, blog, a group on Greenpeace Greenwire, and is now working on a newsletter, where he will be publishing over a dozen articles from his book online, to promote and drive traffic to the website. He will also make short videos of the articles and post them online as well. Within the next year , Moses hopes to sell publish copies of his book in four different languages.
