Scientists at the Stockholm International Water Institute say, "... the world’s population explosion means the majority of people will have to turn vegetarian by 2050.”
Farmed animal products require much more water, land, and energy to produce than plant-based foods. The more animal products we consume, the fewer people we can feed.
The report called Feeding a Thirsty World is being released at the Annual World Water Conference in Stockholm. It says that dramatic cuts in meat consumption are the only answer to ensure our survival.
“There will not be enough water available on current croplands to produce food for the expected nine billion population in 2050 if we follow current trends and changes towards diets common in western nations,” the report declares. “We will need a new recipe to feed the world in the future.”
