I think that we should really take this American graphic on board.
They, unlike the UK, have lots of factory farms and their normal method of raising livestock is to finish them by fattening them on grain.
And isn’t it funny how everyone knows this but does not seem to recognise that eating grain is fattening – and humans are animals as well?
The best UK livestock is entirely grass fed, which is possible in our rainy country, where the cropped and trampled grass keeps carbon in, while the animal excreta keeps the ground fertilised. Cow farts may happen but they are as nothing compared to the human transport footprint and of course flying especially, where we now know that 70 per cent of flights are taken by the wealthiest 15 per cent in society. Over half of the UK population doesn’t fly at all, predominantly because they don’t have the economic means to.
I think we all have to hope that the vegetarian deceit that the world benefits from not eating meat is exposed as a myth.
