The Truth About Resource Depletion
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption, pollution, greenhouse gases emissions, rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones”, and virtually every other environmental issue. Our planet’s groundwater is being pumped out much faster than it can be replenished. Animal agriculture is responsible for consumption of nearly 1/3 of the global freshwater supply. Usages include, watering the feed crops, providing drinking water, and cleaning away filth for the billions of animals on factory farms.
