GREENHOUSE GASES
Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation.
~
Emissions for agriculture projected to increase 80% by 2050.
~
Methane is 25-100 times more destructive than CO2 on a 20 year time frame. ~
Cows produce 150 billion gallons of methane per day.
~
Reducing methane emissions would create tangible benefits almost immediately.
~
WATER
Agriculture is responsible for 80-90% of US water consumption.
~
2,500 gallons of water are needed to produce 1 pound of beef.
~
477 gallons of water are required to produce 1lb. of eggs.
~
1,000 gallons of water are required to produce 1 gallon of milk.
~
LAND
Livestock or livestock feed occupies 1/3 of the earth’s ice-free land.
~
Livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land.
~
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction.
~
WASTE
A farm with 2,500 dairy cows produces the same amount of waste as a city of 411,000 people.
~
OCEANS
90-100 million tons of fish are pulled from our oceans each year. ~
For every 1 pound of fish caught, up to 5 pounds of unintended marine species are caught and discarded as by-kill.
~
Scientists estimate as many as 650,000 whales, dolphins and seals are killed every year by fishing vessels.
~
40-50 million sharks killed in fishing lines and nets.
~
RAINFOREST
Animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of Amazon destruction.
~
The leading causes of rainforest destruction are livestock and feedcrops.
~
HUMANITY
We are currently growing enough food to feed 10 billion people.
~
Worldwide, at least 50% of grain is fed to livestock.
~
82% of starving children live in countries where food is fed to animals, and the animals are eaten by western countries.
