Sacramento, Calif. – Because the local weather disaster fuels California’s wildfires, a fiddler will play “Fireplace on the Mountain” and different tunes on the steps of the State Capitol Thursday, looking for to strike the proper notice in an enchantment to Gov. Gavin Newsom to cut back animal agriculture’s huge function within the disaster—a degree to which his administration has refused to pay attention.

PETA factors out that the McKinney hearth has turn out to be California’s largest hearth of 2022 and that the local weather disaster has made a extra intense hearth season the brand new norm. Based on the United Nations, a world shift to vegan consuming is required to fight the worst results of local weather change, as animal agriculture alone is accountable for almost one-fifth of human-induced greenhouse fuel emissions. Clearing land to lift animals on and to develop crops to feed them is a number one reason behind deforestation, and the large quantity of water utilized in animal agriculture contributes to the dry circumstances that permit wildfires to unfold.

“California is on hearth, and animal agriculture is the tinder that makes it burn, but Gov. Newsom is giving us a music and dance by pointing to different, lesser causes,” says PETA Government Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is pushing the governor to vary his tune now and promote planet-friendly vegan meals, earlier than all of us go up in smoke.”

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals aren’t ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra data, please go to or comply with the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
