Nice ditty but supernaive. Many farming methods of vegan foods are catastrophic for the environment and for wildlife too. It's ironic that he should request avocados. Increased demand for these has led to mass deforestation in places like Mexico where endangered species are being wiped out. The crop demands disproportionate amounts of water, along with pesticides and fertiliser, and best not to think of the carbon footprint of getting them here. You get similar stories when you look at soy, cashew and almonds, quinoa etc. etc.

Instead of pointing the finger at others and refusing to look at our own diets like this guy, we should all be figuring out how to make our food more ethical and sustainable, whatever we choose to eat. Industrial farming methods need to be entirely reworked across the board and this guy is doing exactly what he's complaining about.

Lab-grown meat and solar-powered indoor vertical farming on a global scale. Food production issues solved. Deserts could become the most "fertile" land in times of extreme and unpredictable weather.

"Shocks vegan world"? Malcolm King has been a vegan activist for decades.. he even owns a website called 'Vegan Songs'. So if it shocks the vegan world when he recites a vegan song, then the vegan world is easily shocked. Who knew?

The original reason to keep cattle is actually to turn what we cannot eat and digest (grass, herbs, leaves) into food that we can eat - their meat and milk.

Absolutely, because it is totally impossible to grow vegetables/fruit etc where grass/herbs grow. The only thing that can survive there is a cow. FACT.

Look, a straw man! I did not say totally impossible. But is is actually not easy to continuously grow fruits, vegetables or grain (grass with seeds we can eat) on the steppe, the savannah, in alpine areas, or other grasslands, or indeed any other soil. You will always need an influx of fertiliser or at least let the fields rest. Having cattle, letting them graze on places that were less easy to farm, where they turned what they ate in fertiliser and even provided meat and milk made a lot of sense. The only areas where this was not so necessary were those that were regularily flooded, which left fertilser from the river.
