And why? Well, as the Christmas 2019 countdown begins - ever earlier, it seems - and our screens throb with food porn, fun, and gift ideas, Greenpeace serves up a reminder about the connection between consumption and the environment. The 'Ultimate Comedy Roast' pits a turkey against a potato in a stand-up battle to deliver the message. "Forests are being destroyed for the turkey on our tables," says the campaigning environmental NGO. "We eat 10 million turkeys every year on Christmas Day in the UK - and they’re fed on forest destruction. We are in a climate emergency and forest destruction is one of its driving causes. The forests of South America are being cut down to grow feed for animals like turkey and chicken, which supermarkets sell all over the UK." People in the UK need to cut meat consumption by 70% over the next 10 years to make a significant difference, says Greenpeace. Does it make you think differently about your Christmas meal, or your general meat consumption?
