Every year 65 billion animals are raised and slaughtered for their meat. Nearly a third of the planet's ice-free land surface is devoted to raising the animals we either eat or milk. The latest UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) estimates suggest that livestock are responsible for 14.5% of man-made greenhouse gas emissions - the same amount produced by all the world's cars, planes, trains and boats put together. Can the planet cope with our ever-increasing appetite for meat? Michael Mosley reveals the damage livestock farming is doing to the planet and asks if it's possible to be an eco-friendly carnivore.
