Global consumption of meat needs to fall - to ensure future demand for food can be met and to help protect the environment - a study says.

Research from Cambridge and Aberdeen universities estimates greenhouse gases from food production will go up 80% if meat and dairy consumption continues to rise at its current rate.

"As RSPCA Australia’s own policy officer, Jed Goodfellow, wrote on 16 July, reporting cruelty immediately after each incident does not typically result in any substantive action. He noted, "With the PETA shearing shed investigation, for example, if PETA had taken footage of one shearer punching one sheep in the nose and provided that footage to authorities, it’s likely that there would be no significant response". He also agreed that it takes time to document routine or widespread cases of animal abuse.
