The Future of Food

  • Currently, livestock takes place in 45% of the global surface on Earth.
  • Rates of deforestation are increasing because they want to increase land expansion to fill it up with animals to then be produced to consumer’s meat
  • The rates of animal production are only increasing and are predicted to increase by up to 73% between 2010 and 2050
  • The world produces 5 x’s the amount of meat than it did 50 years ago (in 2014–317 million tons)
  • For every one human, there are three farm animals alive today
  • There are 22.5 billion more cows, chickens, goats, and pigs living on farms rather than having natural selection locate them
  • Animal production is the biggest polluter of the globe’s freshwater
