CLIMATE CHANGE: MEAT, DAIRY & EGGS VS. THE ENVIRONMENT

Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of land, food, energy, and water. It also causes immense animal suffering. A Worldwatch Institute report revealed that 51 percent or more of the global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture. The United Nations claims a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change. Let's save our planet with a plant-based diet. It's time to fight climate change!
