Life cycle assessment of Scottish wild venison. Scottish Natural Heritage Archive Report No. 024. Both sources provide values for emissions at farm gate, before processing and transportation. Why are emissions from meat so high? There are 2 rules to ballpark how much emissions your meat probably caused: 1. Farmed animals’ feed has usually been produced somewhere else and transported to the farm. 2. The digestive system of ruminating animals is different from ours. Interestingly, how far the meat has been transported is not very important Even when meat is transported far, emissions from transportation will likely be < 5% of total emissions. Where can you start to reduce your footprint? Meat supply in the UK has increased by 28% between 1985 and 2015 and in 2015 alone it increased by 5%.

First Day ESL Activity: Introductions of English Students

Often ESL schools don't provide much information concerning the class, so the teacher goes into class with only a vague idea of the true English level of the students. A university foreign language class may speak at a low intermediate level, and a high school ESL class may be advanced. This raises the problem of entering an English class with a lesson plan and ESL activity that quickly proves to be too hard or too easy. There is a very easy ESL activity that can help make the first day of English class go more smoothly, discover the true level of the students, provide opportunities to speak English and learn more about the ESL students.

For example, Bangladesh went from using human muscle and ox power in the early 1970s to being one of the most mechanized agricultural economies in South Asia, with 300 000 low-power 2-wheel tractors, a million diesel powered irrigation pumps and widespread mechanized crop threshing.
