WILL JUDGE DREDD’S NEW STUDIO GO VEGAN? NO ‘MUNCE’ NEEDED
PETA Asks Rebellion Productions to Help Prevent the Environmental Destruction Seen in Mega-City One by Choosing Eco-Friendly Vegan Food
Didcot, Oxfordshire – With Rebellion Productions – the media company behind the Judge Dredd franchise – poised to open a new film studio complex in Didcot, PETA sent CEO Jason Kingsley a letter this morning asking him to help prevent a real-life dystopian future by ensuring that only vegan food is served there.
“As you know, in Judge Dredd’s fictional world, the Earth has been devastated environmentally,” writes PETA. “To survive, inhabitants of Mega-City One live off ‘munce’, a high-protein plant that fulfils all their dietary needs. Likewise, vegan eating is the solution to avoiding environmental devastation on our Earth.”
PETA goes on to explain why the United Nations is calling for a global shift towards a plant-based diet: animal agriculture is a major contributor to climate change and causes deforestation, drought, desertification, and the devastation of ecosystems. If everyone switched from consuming cows to eating soya, we could harvest the same amount of protein using 97 per cent less land while also slashing global greenhouse-gas emissions. “And unlike the residents of Mega-City One,” writes the group, “we don’t need to munch on ‘munce’, as we have a vibrant variety of exciting vegan foods readily available to us.”
In addition, each person who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals per year and reduces their own risk of suffering from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
