This is a very serious issue indeed.
In some countries, farmers are now taxed per head of cattle for the methane production / pollution problem which is a social (and global) nuisance and
potential contributor of undetermined scale to all manner of atmospheric phenomena.
Farming and eating meat while it can be intensely pleasurable for omnivores like me, is a highly inefficient way of feeding human beings.
Be thankful that whaling is heavily restricted, and there are no whale farms.
