It is projected that by 2050, the population of the UK will be around 80 million, and the highest in western Europe.
There is a lot of fear mongering going on ( typically by nationalist bigots ), spreading a message of inescapable doom. However, this is not true.
It could be true, assuming the U.K remain as omnivores.. On the other hand, as always, veganism can save the day.
“Let us for the sake of argument consider the extreme scenario where the UK grows only a single crop
on the available productive land5
(Appendix B.2 – Calculation_1). A mono crop production of
potatoes, for example, could support 421 million people annually – over 5 times the population – in
2050. A mono crop production of tomatoes on the other hand could support 1.2 billion people. By
comparison, if the UK were to rely either on beef or poultry production, then only 7 and 33 million
people respectively could be supported; much less than the current population. These results are
summarised in the following table. The extended table of the results can be found in the Technical ”
The population of the U.K, currently exceeds 60 million… Even now, we couldn’t feed the population on a high meat diet…Grass-fed would make the problem even worse.
