Livestock production is responsible for a huge chunk of global green house gas emissions. The more meat we eat, the more we produce, and the carbon footprint gets bigger. As Meat Free Monday reports, a sustainable future demands that we cut this consumption and yet between 1961 and 2007, while the world population increased by a factor of 2.2, meat consumption quadrupled and poultry consumption increased 10-fold.
"To build a better world in the future we all need to make changes in our lifestyles now."
