We donít need to be cruel to farm animals to feed people, now or in the future. Thatís the conclusion of Eating the Planet, the latest research commissioned jointly by Compassion in World Farming and Friends of the Earth.
Ther new report outlines the ultimate win-win scenario: feeding the worldís 2050 population without intensive agriculture is not only good for animal welfare but also provides environmental benefits such as promoting biodiversity and reducing pollution.
All of this is extremely heartening news because two out of every three farm animals worldwide are currently in factory farms. Some policy makers wrongly suggest the only way to feed a burgeoning human population is to condemn even more farm animals to a life of unimaginable suffering. Now we have detailed proof to strongly refute this argument.
