A massive study just published in Science has underlined just how huge the environmental impact of meat/dairy consumption is. Going #vegan is far and away the single biggest thing we can do to help the environment - it fights #ClimateChange, #WaterWaste, #deforestation, #extinction, #pollution, and more.
18% of global calories, but 83% of land usage. If we want to feed everyone, this tremendously bad land management and capitalist profit prioritisation needs to change.
@kit_darko It so disturbing how hard it is for some people to wrap their heads around this concept. I often tell people that I'm mostly vegan for political reasons as meat is extremely inefficient and they just don't understand it.
Such a simple concept: what is more efficient: grow A, feed A to B for N months, then eat B or grow A and eat A.
The inefficiency of meat industry is just madness inducing really.
