Do you know how much water is left on the planet?
While our planet is covered 70% by water, 98% is in the oceans, which makes it “unusable” water due to the saline content. About 2.5% of the remaining water is fresh, but 1.6% of this is inaccessible, locked up in the polar ice caps and glaciers. This leaves us to a mere 1% of drinkable water.
Yet, agriculture alone is responsible for 80-90% of the U.S. water consumption (USDA report).
Out of those, growing feed crops for agriculture livestock consumes 56% of water in the U.S.
If this is not a worldwide crisis, we don’t know what else is. Yet again, 90% of those who learn about this shocking disbelief will walk away and continue to play a part in this mass destruction of the planet by consuming meat. The irony comes because every penny of what you are paying for contributes to fattening the agriculture industry who are directly leading every species on earth to doomsday, including your own and your future generation.
Time to wake up to the truth.
