      According to the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation, animal agriculture - breeding, raising, and slaughtering animals for food - is responsible for about 14.5% of global greenhouse-gas emissions, which, by some estimates, is greater than all the world's transportation systems combined.

      What's more, animal agriculture uses one-third of the world's fresh water and one-third of global cropland for feed. Water scarcity already affects every continent - over two billion people live in countries experiencing high levels of water shortages, and more than 690 million people still go hungry.
