‘Watch what you eat — it’s driving elephants, jaguar, bees and bison to extinction’
Jane C Dalton

The usual eat less beef with a slight twist. How about fighting against industrial feeding operations and pushing sustainable farming and the abolishment of price supports (here in the US disguised as crop insurance) that make CAFO’s apparently profitable. When done right, grazing sequesters carbon in the soil, increases soil permeability and water retension while doing away with the need for fertilizers. The same effect can be had with row crops by using cover crops, crop rotation, interplanting and grazing the cover crops and crop residue.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
