Impact of Animal Agriculture on the Planet (via Conspiracy)

“According to two environmental specialists at the World Bank Group, using the global standard for measuring greenhouse gases, [it was] concluded that animal agriculture is responsible for 51 percent of human-cause climate change… Not only that but raising animals for food is responsible for 30 percent of the world’s water consumption, occupies up to 45 percent of the earth’s land, is responsible for up to 91 percent of Brazilian Amazon destruction, is a leading cause of ocean dead zones, habitat destruction, and species extinction.”
