Germany: Umweltbundesamt UBA advocates reduction in number of animals

Germany’s main environmental protection agency Umweltbundesamt UBA advocates a reduction in the number of animals by 50 percent. In view of animal emissions, UBA believes that a carbon tax for cows is a logical idea, but after heavy criticism it withdrew the proposal. Nevertheless, the UBA is calling for a significant reduction in the effects of animal husbandry on the environment and ⁠climate⁠, because the production and consumption of animal food is currently not sustainable from an environmental and climate point of view, nor from a health and animal welfare perspective, according to the UBA.
