  • Portugal’s Environmentalist association, Zero, has said that Portuguese nationals have to change their diet and consume less meat and fish.

  • Environmentalists warned that “industrial agriculture and the food industry are almost as important to climate change as fossil fuels,” not least because 75 percent of freshwater resources are devoted to agricultural or livestock production.
