Intensive mass animal farming contributes significantly to global warming

© GRAIN, IATP and Heinrich Böll Foundation

Did you know that the world's 20 largest meat and dairy corporations were responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions in 2016 than Germany? Or that the three largest producers of meat and dairy products emitted more greenhouse gases last year than all of France?

The justification that the need to feed the world and to meet the growing demand for animal products is flimsy. In fact, such giant corporations ruin the livelihoods of small-scale farmers around the world, especially in developing countries, and contribute to the excessive consumption of meat and dairy products.

Moreover, not only the rights and the welfare of animals, but also those of the workers, are often disregarded by big corporations.

More details and solutions to the rescue of the climate can be found in this article, which was recently published in "The Guardian".
