Beef farming (to produce meat from cows on a farm) hurts (damages) the environment. It (Beef farming) is ten times more harmful (damaging; be bad for someone or something) than farming other meat. Cows need 28 times more land and 11 times more water than sheep. They also need 160 times more land than potatoes and rice. Scientists said animal farming causes global (all of the world) warming. Fifteen per cent (15%) of greenhouse gas is from farming.
Eating less beef will make our carbon footprint (the total amount of greenhouse gas produced by an organization, event, product or person) smaller.
