Re No beef with the Greens:

All animal-use industries are inherently inhumane, and there is no such thing as “sustainable” or healthful meat production as John Streicker, Green Party candidate for the Yukon, would like the public to believe.

Streicker said these things in a reply to a open letter from me to Elizabeth May, the leader of the Green Party.

Doesn’t the Green (Icon) Party realize that even some pretty conservative environmentalists know that “you can’t eat meat and be an environmentalist.”

Industries (and now politicians) have been misleading the public by supporting and promoting the commercial production and consumption of animals.

The “Green” Party and the Yukon Party appear to be behind on the science that shows the human anatomy does not need meat, milk and eggs, and these “products” have been linked to many diseases in human beings.

Influenza, anthrax and even the common cold virus have adapted to human beings through steady exposure to domesticated animals. The public continues to be misled about this.

The Green Party is in a good position to take a stand on these issues, but they have decided to go the “mainstream” route instead.

All animal use is unjust, and this injustice is the leading cause of ecosytem destruction.
