3. A Serious Population Problem

A lot has been said about the human population expected to reach the 9 billion mark by 2050; however, the real population problem is not the human one, but the farm animal one. Livestock consumes more than a third of the grain worldwide, uses three-quarters of all the agricultural land, and is responsible for 90% of the destruction of the rainforest and grasslands for cattle grazing and livestock feed; hence raising animals for food being the leading cause of species extinction.
