The future of diet is: mostly plants
Wildlife accounts for just 4% of all mammals on this planet. 4%.
Humans: 36%. The remaining 60%? Livestock.
Livestock production accounts for about 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Global cattle population has reached 1 Billion in 2020 – The cattle industry typically requires 8x water and 160x land per calorie as vegetables; their burps and farts produce methane that’s 86x more potent than CO2 to warm the atmosphere.
