Slowing Down Global Warming: #10-#13

Bible Verses, Practical, and Personal Change

By Rosalie Brown

My God will meet all your needs
according to the riches of his
glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

Certainly, food is one of our basic needs.

#10. If possible, eat as a vegetarian or vegan or at least cut down on the amount of meat you do eat. Providing beef and milk results in lots of methane gas, which is even more polluting than carbon dioxide. Save the meat and the milk for the kids. The way animals are raised is suspect for a pandemic. Holidays present the possibility for an exception. A plant-rich diet does have enough protein and there is less of a chance of heart disease and cancer for you.

#11. Food waste is the third biggest contributor to global warming (Drawdown). Rotting food gives off methane. It is very helpful to have food banks.

#12. Grow all or some of your own fruits and vegetables. ‘Slow’ food takes much less transportation. You will know for sure that your food is organic and you’ll be able to skip the packaging.

#13. Keep your weight down. You’ll consume less food.
