03 Dec 2014
Fast food chains are a major cause of global heating and deforestation, because they are promoting, through billions of dollars of annual advertising, the consumption of mammal flesh which the United Nations environmental panel has said cause more greenhouse gases than cars. In addition, they cause major deforestation. The drought in Brazil and Peru is caused by massive deforestation in order to make room for cattle ranching and timber operations.
