A recent newspaper headline read, “World must slash meat consumption to save climate, says study”.

Based on a scientific study published in the journal Nature, the report read: “Food production – which produces damaging greenhouse gases from livestock, ruins enormous swathes of forests and uses unsustainable amounts of water – is a major contributor to climate change.”

Scientists who conducted the study said people in the Western world need to cut back their consumption of meat by at least 90 per cent. Unless you believe all the hurricanes happening now in the world are a fluke, we’d be well advised to take these warnings seriously.
