If we do not act now, a global ecological disaster of seismic proportion will emerge within the next few years.
According to the FAO, the agricultural livestock industry produces more greenhouse gases than the use of petrol for cars, trucks and other transportation.
- Livestock industry uses 30% of the world's surface, including 33% of agricultural land used for planting animal feed.
- Agricultural animal farming leads to deforestation to make way for new pastures and it leads to devastating, widely prevalent soil deterioration caused by over overgrazing, soil compaction and erosion.
- Agricultural livestock raising is the number one threat for the ever decreasing world water resources. An enormous amount of water is used to produce the feed for livestock animals.
- Livestock animals eat more protein than they produce. For every 1 kg of animal protein produced, animals consume on average 6 kg of plant protein, in the form of cereal and green fodder.
- It takes about 20'000 to 40'000 litres of water to produce 1 kg of beef and approximately 900 litres to produce 1 kg of wheat.
- Every day millions of animals are killed globally for the unhealthy consumption of meat.
It is the responsibility of the government to safeguard its citizens, the animals and this would be warranted by the ban of meat.
Please sign our petition. Without you, things will not change and without your help they will not change fast enough. Every signature counts! If you support a legal ban of meat, sign here. The petition will be delivered to governments in Europe (and other countries of the world). Thanks for your help and best wishes!
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
