Here’s a selection of memes and charts covering various issues.

THE GREAT BARRIER REEF AND THE IMPACT OF ANIMAL AGRICULTURE

LIVESTOCK-RELATED LAND CLEARING

The Queensland government’s State Landcover and Trees Study (SLATS) has shown that, between 1988 and 2015, 90,340 square kilometres of land were cleared or re-cleared for pasture in Queensland, which is equivalent to nearly 11 million rugby fields (or nearly 17 million American football fields), with the process accelerating in recent years after a partial ban on broadscale clearing was lifted in 2013.

It is also equivalent to a tract of land 10 kilometres (6 miles) wide running between Melbourne and Cairns nearly four times, or between LA and New York around 2.3 times.

SLAUGHTER NUMBERS

The shocking and shameful figures in the next image reflect the full period of animal slaughter statistics published by the UN Food & Agriculture Organization.

If you replace beef and lamb with chicken in order to reduce your carbon footprint, then you are massively increasing your cruelty footprint. This chart shows the number of chickens required to replace one cow in the top per capita beef-eating countries:
