My question: Why wait until 2018? If you’ve finally figured out that you shouldn’t be doing it, why do it for even one more day? I imagine the reason is economic. Which is probably why they’re stopping in the first place — consumers finally object too much.
The emphasis on economics is, as usual, the problem. We call economics “the bottom line.” We forget that below that line lives and breathes and feels all of (suffering) Nature, including our own.
