With the rise in global population, the demand for meat has gone drastically high. No doubt population is one of the reasons why the meat production has increased so rapidly, but it doesn’t account for the major cause its increment. Another key factor is the rising income in the developing countries. Around the world, the living standards of people have increased, with the global average income escalating 3 times higher in half century. Certainly, we need to stop burning fossil fuels, but at the other hand reducing meat consumption in higher and middle-income countries will prove beneficial in protecting climate and healing nature. We ought to suppose for a meat that is produced sustainably.
