The first and last sentences of today's front page story in The Times, based on an interview with Lord Stern:
People will need to consider turning vegetarian if the world is to conquer climate change, according to a leading authority on global warming.
The UN has warned* that [global] meat consumption is on course to double by the middle of the century.
But never mind the rest of the world and their carnivorous appetites, I'm sure Stern would argue that we in Britain need to lead the way and set an example. Every bit counts, no?
Apparently Lord Stern is 'not a strict vegetarian himself'. That is, he eats meat.
*Warned! I bet those hungry Chinese and Indians can't wait.
