Here’s an article asking “Why Should We Care About The Environment?” which explains how a Sentientist perspective on environmental and climate change challenges might differ from the most common perspectives of today’s environmental movement.

Animal agriculture’s impact on both climate and environment is a central concern for many Sentientists. That’s mainly because of our compassion for the trillions of sentient beings exploited, harmed and killed by those industries. It’s also because there’s a powerful taboo that seems to block much of the environmental movement from seeing or addressing the catastrophic impacts of animal agriculture. That taboo is being broken down (see the Barbecue Earth and Table‘s Meat: Four Futures and Feed podcasts as examples) – but even that refreshing discourse seems constrained by widespread assumptions that 1) animal agriculture simply must continue in some form (so let’s just tweak it a bit) – and 2) that a transition to a plant-based agricultural system, for some reason, can’t be an obvious (and already existing!) solution to the biggest ethical and environmental issues our agriculture systems cause.
