VetSalus Book Review. Regenesis: Feeding the World without Devouring the Planet, by George Monbiot
George Monbiot is a well known and frequently controversial Guardian columnist and author. It thus comes as no surprise that the cover of his new book,’Regenesis’, does not hesitate to present an immediate challenge, showing, as it does, a bucolic scene of a wildflower meadow with a stark cut out of a grazing bovine very obviously removed. Find out what our Chair, Lewis Griffiths, thought of the book.
New Zealand Begins to Address Methane Emissions

Agriculture remains a cornerstone of the New Zealand economy and ruminant based agriculture, particularly dairy, makes up the largest single component. As a direct result of this, methane emissions from ruminants contribute around one third of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing these emissions is critical to New Zealand meeting its international targets but doing so comes with a considerable risk of damaging the economy.

Remember, Remember COP26 last November?
It is six months since COP26 and the world appears to be in a rather different mindset, with an understandable focus on the war in Ukraine, international supply chains and inflation. But the steadily ticking clock of climate change and the need to control greenhouse gases does not pause because the political and economic environment has changed. It does appear that many world leaders have conveniently forgotten this fact?
