I was just going to post this:
https://www.wwf.org.uk/updates/appetite-for-destruction is the header page of the study
https://www.wwf.org.uk/sites/default...rt_SignOff.pdf should bring you direct to the report
I found this part interesting: (the part in my bold is bolded by me, not as such in the report). I don't see the sources for the protein stats within the report.
"While the UK nutritional guidelines recommend 45-55g of protein per day, the average UK consumption is 64-88g, of which 37% is meat and meat products.....
Significant environmental benefits could be achieved by simply sticking to the nutritionally recommended amount of protein. If everyone reduced the amount of animal products that they ate to meet their nutritional requirements, the total agricultural land required would decline by 13%. That means nearly 650 million hectares – or an area 1.5 times the size of the European Union – would be saved from agricultural production."

It's good to see this message being broadcast by mainstream environmental groups, in addition to animal rights / vegetarian groups.

Vast animal-feed crops to satisfy our meat needs are destroying planet
This is so important and it doesn't get talked about in mainstream media nearly enough, please share!
