Research from Cambridge and Aberdeen universities estimates greenhouse gases from food production will go up 80% if meat and dairy consumption continues to rise at its current rate. That will make it harder to meet global targets on limiting emissions.

People, you need to stop eating meat. It isn't hard to stop-I did it myself a few years back and have NEVER missed it. I ate meat for over 50 years and it is thanks to Care2 that I stopped and became a vegetarian. I feel wonderful and full of energy. My allergies disappeared about a month after going vegetarian. My conscious is clear that no animal is being mistreated and killed to become food for me. There are 5 happy little hens that provide eggs in return for being kept safe and spoiled rotten. They will still be spoiled rotten once they are too old to lay eggs any more-they are family not food and will be loved until they die of old age then will be buried-not thrown in the trash heap.
