I wonder what's driving their increasing need for milk. Also, isn't there a new tech that helps decrease the emissions of cows and other animals raised for consumption?

What? My big question would be - what are they doing with all that milk?

The main problem is China will be the mainstream responsible for increasing greenhouse gas emission by producing pea farming removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produces oxygen, making plants a strikingly more sustainable food option. They will also add the environmental burden of huge animal feed imports  while importing the extra milk wholesale would simply shift the problems to milk exporting nations.

I was wondering about that too. What's up with the rapid increase in demand? Do they use it for bathing? A sudden rise in demand because they'd have more kids by then? It's baffling.
