Meat isn't sustainable
Animals aren’t a sustainable food source.
I don’t care what your opinion is on food ethics, but eating meat isn’t sustainable.
Huge CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) have become the predominant method of raising livestock, and the crowded conditions in these facilities have increased pollution. CAFOs damage our air, water, and the rural communities they inhabit. And when we count the costs of this damage, it turns out that we can't afford to produce.
As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future—deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.
