Environmental Impact
Comments by Alexander Sokolow - 22 May 2007

Dear FLH,

I understand that factory farming increases global warming. Who does factory farming affect more--the factory farmed animals, or the species more directly affected by global warming?

I also understand that cattle grazing leads to deforestation? Are there more animals as a whole, including cattle and other animals, if we *do* have cattle and they graze or if we don't have cattle?

Will global warming and/or deforestation mean simply that there will be fewer animals alive, or will there permanently be more animals alive and suffering?

Warmest regards,
Alex
