  2. “CO2, Methane, and Nitrous Oxide from the livestock industry are killing our oceans with acidic, hypoxic Dead Zones. 90% of small fish are ground into pellets to feed livestock. Vegetarian cows today are now the world’s largest ocean predator. The oceans are dying in our time. By 2048 all our fisheries will be dead. The lungs and the arteries of the earth.” (Philip Wollen, “Animals Should Be Off The Menu, Speech at Australian debate. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQCe4qEexjc
