Three amazing new resources are now available for anyone who is doing research on the disastrous internationalization of factory farming. The fabulous Brighter Green has just put out three policy papers on climate change and the globalization of industrial animal agriculture in Brazil, China, and Ethiopia, with accompanying multimedia and research briefs.
These groundbreaking papers provide the information needed to make the case that the global intensification of meat and dairy production is having a drastic effect on global warming. In addition, they provide detailed information on the many intersecting issues involved in the internationalization of factory farming, including “food security, public health, resource use, environmental degradation, livelihoods, and animal welfare.”
As with all of Brighter Green’s work, the papers are extremely sensitive to issues of sustainability and equity. For anyone making the case that fighting factory farming is as pro-human as it is pro-animal, these papers are going to be an incredibly valuable resource.
