Environmental and Climate change issues...warning out again today in the media...but not clear enough statements of TRUTHS about COMMON SENSE EASY FACTS that ANIMAL AGRICULTURE causes MORE effects than motor cars and transport systems ! MUCH more effect ! Governments afraid to tell the TRUTH to protect big business interests just like they did for decades the tobacco industry ? Pharmaceutical companies definitely don’t want people to stop eating meat and dairy. The cholesterol reducing Statins industry is worth around $20 Billion dollars a year on its own!
Oh warnings about Climate change effects again today in the news...Go vegan...animal agriculture is the main cause of climate change...we have managed 70 percent reduction of all wildlife and even hedgehogs in the past 40 years alone due mainly to animal agriculture...takes at least 10 times more land alone to grow food for farm animals than if we ate it directly ourselves instead...
It is high time the Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and World Wildlife Fund started telling the TRUTH clearly also instead of asking for money to fund small effects projects. The CHEAPEST and immediate biggest effect INDIVIDUALS can take action on for the planet, their health and lives of animals including WILDLIFE that is practically extinct for the "sexy" elephant species but thousands of others already affected...is GO VEGAN.
1 football pitch PER SECOND is currently being deforested for animal agriculture, an area 3 times the size of Denmark per year , forests are 30 percent left of the world surface, 20 percent of the world oxygen is produced by the amazon forest, uh oh hey ...
1000 gallons of water to produce 1 meat burger...1 cow drinks 30 liters of water per day and then comes the water for their plant foods needs...never mind taking shower instead of bath water savings hey...not eating 1 beefburger saves more water hey...
The amazon forests are being destroyed mostly for planting farm animal feed for the rich pig burger etc eating populations of the world......(While the chief importers of Brazilian beef were previously Europe and North America, nowadays Asian countries such as China and Russia consume more Brazilian beef than the European market. So, the demand is increasing day by day.
With increasing population and increased per capita meat consumption, the rate of deforestation is increasing every day as well. It is expected that by 2018, the beef export will increase 93 percent, thereby increasing Brazil’s beef market share of world exports to 61 percent. Beef is the most carbon-intensive form of meat production on the planet.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization finds that beef production gives rise to more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry)
