I think some countries and traditional cuisines are a lot more meat-centric (is that even a word?) than others. Someone who's used to big juicy steaks is really going to struggle with a few shreds of meat to flavour a stir-fry - but their innards as well as the environment will probably thank them for cutting down and eating more veg.

I would like to know if all the Americas, China, rest of Europe, in fact the rest of the world are as worried about the planet as the UK seems to have become.
I am thinking about all the heavy industy (that the UK no longer has) and all the countries who pollute the rivers and then the seas and oceans of the world and I don't just mean plastic and alike.

As someone has already said, it will take all countries to comply to make a difference or are we all doomed anyway?
Yes, it will. However that's rather like being caught doing something in the playground and saying "please sir, the big boy did it too". It's not really an argument. Maybe it will take somewhere like the UK to be forward thinking and give the rest of the world an example, we used to lead the world doing stuff like that.





If only it was as simple as your example. I don't think we will see any difference in our lifetime but hopefully other countries try a bit harder.

You are right when you say the UK used to lead the rest of the world but not know.
We are a big consumer of goods from abroad where most things are made nowadays which in turn chucks out pollutants into the atmosphere and rivers etc.

We don't pollute as much as we have very little industry, otherwise we would be the same. We just leave it to other countries and then complain about pollution?

My message for the Vegans is, "Have you ever seen a fat, overweight lion or a slim, anorexic Hippo?"

I wasn't aware that eating 80g of meat per day was vegan.

If people stop or cut down drastically on meat eating, what will happen to the livelihood of livestock farmers and the land management aspect of especially sheep farming?

Meat will get more expensive. I was astounded at the price of a leg of lamb I bought for Christmas...a few years ago I could have bought a whole sheep for that

A big problem is the packaging of our food and the contents of processed food. Palm oil?
If we all used less processed food and went for environmental packaging that would help. The size of the world's population means that whatever we eat will have to be farmed intensively be it nuts or beef.
