Livestock’s long shadow - Environmental UN Report

Livestock’s long shadow - Environmental issues and options

United Nations report on Livestock's effect on the environment Paul McCartney appeared on News at Ten highlighting the grave repercussions for us if we continue to eat as much meat as we currently do.

As if you needed anymore reasons to avoid saturated animal fats in your diet he added scarcity of water, land degradation, and polution to the list.

Sir Paul McCartney has a point. When meat eaters start admitting that Donald Watson was right, back in 1944 when he predicted catastrophe if we failed to change our diets, you know times are changing. The United Nations report is clear about apportioning blame. Cattle farming is worse than cars and planes. We must drastically change the way we eat or face responsibility for a horrifying legacy for our children.
