M: Good morning and welcome to People In the News. With me today is Megan Brown, an environmental activist (1) whose controversial new book beyond recycling is making headlines.
W: Hi, Brian. Thanks for having me today. I'm excited to explain to the audience what my book is really about.
M: (2) Critics of your book say that you're trying to force radical changes on the entire country. Some claim that you want to force everyone to eat a vegetarian diet and make private transport illegal.
W: I'm aware of those claims, but they simply aren't true. People who haven't read the book are making assumptions about my arguments. They know I'm a vegetarian that I don't wear leather or fur and that I always use public transportation. So, they're depicting me as a radical animal rights activist and environmentalist determined to force my beliefs on others.
M: But don't you want others to adopt your practices? You've campaigned for animal rights and the environment for decades.
W: I'd love it if people chose to live as I do. But my life choices are based on my personal convictions. They aren't my recommendations for others who don't share those convictions.
M: Well, in this excerpt from your book, you argue that meat consumption and private transport are devastating the environment, and that the best choices for the planet are vegetarian diets and public transport.
W: I did write that, but those are examples of what I call best practices, not what I'm actually suggesting in my guidelines for saving the environment. (3) I suggest modest changes like eating vegetarian meals 2 days a week.
M: You also endorse high taxes on meat and other animal products and increase taxes on gasoline. Those taxes could force poor people to adopt your life choices.
W: (4) But the taxes I suggest aren't that high less than 3% only plus the money generated would be allocated to environmental protection which benefits everyone.
