Our #meat comes from different #farm systems

When animals are grazed on grass, as in #organic, this can have positive impacts on #climate & #nature. Intensively produced #grain-fed chicken & pigs can have the opposite effect

🐄🐖🐔 Intensively farmed animals are almost always fed on #grain & imported #soya

This is devastating for the #climate & #biodiversity

2. Firstup, despite the deeply worrying state of land use, the existence of the report itself, ahead of the @UNClimateSummit this September and two crucial COP's next year on climate and biodiversity is an important step forward
3. Secondly, it represents a growing consensus on where the solutions are; restoring ecosystems (in particular peatlands), reducing meat consumption and production, securing indigenous land rights

Impact of Animal Agriculture

The farm animal production sector is the single largest anthropogenic user of land, contributing to soil degradation, dwindling water supplies, & air pollution.
The animal agriculture sector also encompasses feed grain production which requires substantial water, energy, and chemical inputs, as well as energy expenditures to transport feed, live animals, and animal
