An important new collation of 40 years worth of climate science data is hitting the news. It presents 15 sets of data on the human activities which effect the climate and another 14 sets of data on the impacts of these activities. Two of the 15 sets of data are on the growth of ruminant livestock populations and global per capita meat production. AJP has long realised the importance of these activities, and are patiently waiting for other Australian political parties and so-called environmental groups to catch up.  The report explicitly calls for plant-based dietary reform and points out that not only will this directly reduce harm to the climate, but also allow the reforestation of large areas. Widespread reforestation has long been recognised by climate scientists as a key means of reducing climate damage.
