The IPCC concluded that eating less meat, especially in developed countries, and reducing food waste was an effective method to help reduce global warming. It predicts this action would save millions of square kilometres of land being degraded by farming.
The findings led to calls on the Government from climate campaigners and the Green Party to draw up a national land-use plan to help redirect agriculture and to set out how afforestation could help reduce carbon emissions..

Livestock shenanigans at a cabinet meeting being held in Corcaigh – a temporary re-location that must have seemed like a good idea at some point.
That’ll learn them.

It’s udderly ridiculous how crazy we are about cows here at The Irish Workshop; it’s just that cows are very amoosing and we’re particularly fond of Brigid Shelly’s ‘cowshions’.
Many of the designs are inspired by her bovine neighbours where she lives in Waterford.
Take for example Pandora (above in pink) – she is born and reared in Ardmore on Joe Murphy’s farm down the road from Brigid. She isn’t your typical country cow. A self-proclaimed fashionista, she enjoys the finer things in life and has a weakness for single malt whiskey….
