Apologies to vegetarians reading this but I enjoy a good steak on the grill. And, increasingly it seems, so do many other people across the world - or pork, chicken, mutton, lamb and other meat. So much so that it is jeopardizing our soils, our air and our water. But it's often the livestock producers, rather than the consumers, who unfairly bear the brunt of the blame.

With one billion chronically malnourished humans at the moment, perhaps we can make an immediate start.

The journal Science has given US states the green light literally. Where any native species is not under any special protection, there is an obligation for conservation. Because wildlife is not owned, all citizens and therefore the State concerned must act, according to the public trust doctrine.
