Some statistics for us to ponder. It takes 10,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton. One beef cow needs 45 litres of water per day to survive. Recommended intake of meat is 300 to 500 grams per week or around 25 kilograms per year. The average Australian consumes 90 kilograms per year. Could the Greens politicians push for a total ban of cotton growing in the Murray-Darling area? Also, if there were an awareness campaign for people to cut down on their meat consumption, then this would satisfy the vegans.
