Sustainable Living Foundation presents
Meat Your Climate Crisis
The Festival's Great Debate
IS ANIMAL AGRICULTURE THE GREATEST THREAT TO THE PLANET?
It’s absolutely clear that protecting the things we care about is going to require us to look beyond just changing the way we produce and consume energy in the world.
Given we will need to be harnessing every opportunity we can to increase our chances of creating a safe climate, what opportunities are there for addressing animal agriculture as we tackle the climate crisis?
A staggering 70% of agricultural emissions come directly from livestock, and result in 37% of total worldwide human-caused methane emissions. Have we got the stomach to swallow this striking reality? How can we address these unpalatable impacts of animal agriculture, and feed the world?
