INFORMATION

Mahi Pono, the entity that recently purchased A&B land on Maui, claims to be an environmentally responsible steward of the land, but plans to develop cattle ranching and a slaughterhouse.

Cattle ranching production contributes to the world's most pressing environmental problems, including global warming, land degradation, air and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity, according to FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate issued a report in October advising a collective reduction in the consumption of animal products to limit global sea level rise and climate disruption.

Cattle ranching also depletes water resources. 15,415 liters of water are needed to produce a kilogram of bovine meat, whereas only 322 liters of water are needed to produce a kilogram of vegetables. Source: Hoekstra (2012) as published in the Washington Post.
