It is October 15. Guess what it was doing this evening in New Haven, CT? If you guessed snowing, you’d be right.
Now, I’m not sure how out of the ordinary in the grand scheme of things that is; I’m sure it’s snowed this early in the season long before the industrial revolution, but it’s the kind of thing that makes you think.
I’m tired, and I don’t want to preach. I know that there are people out there who scoff at vegan diets as being helpful in the climate change issue, because many of the foods we eat have to be trucked or shipped in or is genetically modified. This is true. For the most part, it doesn’t have to be.
I think the best advice out there for vegans and non-vegans alike is to be aware of what you eat. Awareness is a funny thing. It might help you eat less. It might help you eat better for you. It might help you eat better for animals. It also might help you eat better for the planet.
