Unscramble the Blue Letters

When someone first suggested this to me, quite frkanly I thought they were a little crazy, but what I soon came to realize was that this is not so crazy after all. What's crazy is what we do today. I'm convinced that in 30 years, when we look back on today and on how we raise and slaughter billions of animals to make our hamburgers and our hbdagnas, we'll see this as being wasteful and indeed carzy. Did you know that today we maintain a global herd of 60 billion animals to provide our meat, dariy, eggs and leather goods? And over the next few decades, as the world's population expands to 10 bliilon, this will need to nearly double to 100 billion animals.
