I think that all sounds pretty reasonable. It might not go far enough for some but it's a long way to where we need to be whilst retaining meat in an environmentally and animal friendly way.

“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

The thing that I have yet to see in any debate on reduction of meat production... What happens to the animals when we've decided we don't need them anymore?

Will there be some sort of farmed animal genocide?

Will there be mass sterilisation so that they die out naturally?
So who keeps them, by keep I mean feed and care.

Will they simply be set free to run wild?
In which case they will be free to reproduce and continue emitting green house gasses, but won't the land used for them need to be used for agricultural purposes?

I suspect it will be the last option, similar to when the circuses had to get rid of the big cats and elephants. Soon we shall intermingle with the pigs and cows and ducks and sheep as if they were our own. In time they shall become colleagues, friends and neighbours. So be nice to them now lest they turn on you when they become your employer.

There will always be a considerable group willing to give cattle a purpose, of this I am certain

I look forward to the world being run by cows and pigs. It's been run by lizards for too long...

Do you think it's possible that the lizards have been keeping earth's thermostat purposefully low to suit their cold blood?

Our mammalian colleagues may insist on turning it up instead, further speeding the process of global warming.

One for the boffins to think about

One would presume that dairy herds, for example, won't have access to the funds to arrange for themselves to be artificially inseminated each year, and equally stud sheep will find transport an issue when looking to find flocks of ewes to impregnate. It's logistics that's going to reduce numbers of farmed animals, in the absence of, um, farmers.

When looking at these issues people should remember there were ways of dealing with animal waste in the 60s -70's tanks to put the dumps in, that turded to gas and was used in generators.

Rotting vegitation doesn't produce that much less greenhous gas than animal dumps which is why you can see burning flames on rubbish tips-

& although we tried before the 80's & startrd to get things going in the right direction we are now not doing any of this properly

Seriously?

It's not going to be a hard stop where everything freezes in place is it? They just won't breed as many and there will be a natural decline.
