Is a meat diet sustainable?

We take an in-depth look at the meat and dairy industry and ask whether it is sustainable.

We take an in-depth look at the meat and dairy industry and ask whether it is sustainable. Tim Wilson is owner of butchers The Ginger Pig, and tells us there is still a strong market for meat. Stuart Roberts of the National Farmers Union explains how the industry hopes to become carbon neutral by 2040. And environmental journalist and campaigner George Monbiot discusses why he's sceptical of those claims. Also in the programme, as the US and China sign a trade deal, the BBC's Samira Hussein reports on how the trade war between the countries has affected some companies in Pennsylvania. Plus the BBC's Arunoday Mukharji in Delhi explains why not everyone in India is welcoming an announcement that Amazon is to invest a billion dollars in small- and medium-sized businesses.
