I’m a vegetarian preacher and I have been for the past 10 years. I like to remind those who seem to care about our planet and its current sad state that the solution lies in their plate, that they’ve got the power to reverse or slow down the nastiness of climate change. I can be fairly annoying, and now I know that I’m not entirely right.

AsapSCIENCE put together this very informative animated video that explains what would happen if everyone went vegetarian. Mostly, it would help our world save a great deal of water and reduce our CO2 emissions, but it’s not a miracle solution.

Give this video a watch and think about the way you eat and how it could help our planet. Maybe you will also change your views on a thing or two.
