Greener Pastures

Retailers in Britain should sell New Zealand-produced lamb if they want to help protect the environment, experts claim in a report called ‘Climate Change and Food Systems’. The suggestion, likely to outrage British farmers, comes after the study found that the amount of man-made greenhouse gases from food production is twice as much as previously estimated. Growing food for sheep, cows and pigs takes up far more land and emits more greenhouse gases than producing crops for human consumption. The study claims Britain, for instance, would be better off importing lamb from New Zealand which has been produced more efficiently than on its own farms.
