What happens when the perceived benefits of plant-based diets meet traditional pastoralist in remote regions of the world ? Do these traditional cultures ditch their millennia old way of life for the warm and fuzzy ethics of a good black bean burger? Spoiler alert: the answer is no, they retain their livelihoods and learn about new practices to protect their fragile ecosystem...
Pastoralism is one of the most ancient ways of life known to humans With todays' changing environmental and political climate, the pastoralist is facing more extreme challenges than ever before. Rather than being vilified for their unique and respectful way of life they are leveraging the ecological understanding of regenerative grazing practices to restore their degraded grasslands and subsequently their rich way of life.
Whenever I hear people preaching the perceived value of going vegan I immediately think about that same person trying to preach the same message to a traditional pastoralist. How's that one going to play out? ... See MoreSee Less
Proudly not vegan - Proudly not worried about it One goat feeds 50 people in drylands Africa. One cow feeds 300. The idea that most people in the world, who predominantly live in dryland areas, could survive off of crop or tree “plant-based” protein is ecologically ignorant and culturally insulting. It also utterly misses the critical need for ruminant management in grassland ecosystems, essential for soil, water, and climate health. The notion that I should eat a fake-food veggie burger made from soil-killing soy and wheat instead of a pasture-raised steak produced in ways that can be maintained in perpetuity is to malign reason and is an affront to ethics. Vegans need to check themselves. The only way to counter deleterious and industrial production of food (all foods) is by creating new methods that are regenerative and ecologically sound for the earth in all its ecosystem types - not by attempting to vilify one form of food. Meat is here to stay - forever - and so is animal management to build soil to replenish water tables and sequester carbon. Thank god for this alternative. It is our salvation - figuratively and literally. Yebo!
