Please watch this brief subtitled video where he eloquently states why meat and the meat industry are now bad for the long term survival of our species.

Some of his quotes (not from the video) –

“We obey people we don’t trust, to buy things we don’t need, to impress people we don’t like, using money we don’t have, for gratifications that don’t last, killing animals we don’t hate, for pleasures that don’t satisfy, dreaming of a life we don’t deserve, and praying for an afterlife that doesn’t exist, we are a stupid species”

“When animals do something noble we say they are behaving “like humans.” When humans do something disgusting we say they are behaving “like animals.” Clumsy use of the English language perpetuates the myth that animals are inferior and disposable beings. This makes the task of humanitarians even more difficult.”
