October 15th was Blog Action Day, with the topic being Climate Change. Obviously, I missed it, but that doesn't have to stop me from talking about it now, snort. I have to admit (being a previously proud misanthropist) that in the past I didn't care too much about climate change. As far as I was concerned, global warming was something humans helped to create, and therefore they deserved whatever consequences were coming. I felt bad for other species and for the planet itself, but people were simply gonna get what they had coming! But then I became vegan, and one unfortunate aspect of veganism is having to extend compassion to ALL living creatures including humans who behave badly, so now I'm forced to feel bad for human animals as well. ;)
I'm getting a bit better at it, and would like to share a video sent by a friend that does a good job of explaining why we're all in this together, and why we have to start caring now. Enjoy!
