The meat industry also results in a large carbon footprint. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, the meat industry is responsible for 18% of all CO 2 emissions. This alarming statistic illustrates why meat production needs to be decreased. The meat industry has been targeted by people who care for the environment for a long time. If you aren't aware of the environmental impact of the meat industry, you have to read this article to better understand how it slowly leads to the decay of our planet and our health.

This is a detailed history of legislation to protect the green turtle. Rieser is a professor of ocean policy at the University of Hawaii. In this book, Rieser provides an extensive history of the human exploitation of green turtles over the past century, their resultant decline in numbers, and the efforts by individuals to get legislation enacted that might protect the turtles from possible /5.   Study claims meat creates half of all greenhouse gases more than the combined impact of industry and energy. The accepted figure is 18 per cent, taken from a Author: Martin Hickman.

  At pounds of meat per person per year, our high meat consumption is hurting our national health. Hundreds of clinical studies in the past several decades show that consumption of meat and dairy products, especially at the high levels seen in this country, can cause cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other illnesses.   Even such an enlightened source as the Worldwatch report “Happier Meals: Rethinking the Global Meat Industry” is careful not to advocate for a vegetarian diet, including it in a range of options that also includes eating less meat, switching to pasture-raised “humane” meat, and opting for a few non-meat entrees per week.

Basically an energy audit was performed in a meat processing industry, lo-cated in northwest region of Mexico, hereinafter referred as Company A.

Energy audits are defined as an inspection, survey and analysis of energy consumptions of an industrial site. Meat-processing plants have their specific characteristics due to quantity of raw materials processed, production technology, degree of mechanisation of production and space utilization.

These characteristics affect variability in consumption of energy carriers.
