Corpus Christi, Texas – Because the United Nations (U.N.) climate panel has warned that widespread reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions are needed to forestall a “code red for humanity,” PETA Honorary Director (and former Baywatch star) Pamela Anderson is once again racing to save lives—this time in real life—by dispatching PETA to Corpus Christi with Methane Offset Starter Kits to help locals clean up their act by going vegan.
When: Thursday, August 19, 12 noon
Where: 3502 Ocean Dr. (at the intersection with Sinclair Street), Corpus Christi
PETA supporters will deliver the kits—which contain emissions-slashing vegan foods, including tofu and nondairy creamer—to city officials and give them away to passersby on Thursday. The U.N. has reported that a global shift to vegan eating is required to combat the worst effects of climate change, to which Corpus Christi is especially vulnerable: The sea level is expected to rise drastically, hurricanes are projected to become more intense, and hurricane flood levels will increase.
“Farmers must move away from animal agriculture, and governments must act—but until they do, we have to take personal responsibility to try to save the Earth and future generations, and going vegan is a great step in that direction,” says Anderson, who went vegan years ago. “PETA’s kit is a powerful lifesaver for humans, other animals, and this planet.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
