A really interesting article that highlights how much factory farming effects our climate change. I find it hypocritical when environmentalists push reducing your carbon print, yet actively consume meat.
“In particular, the report concluded that livestock production accounts for 18%, or one-fifth, of global emissions. This figure is higher than all transportation sources combined…Carnegie Melon released a study in spring 2008 indicating that eliminating red meat and dairy just one day a week from one’s diet did more to lower his or her carbon footprint than eating local everyday of the week.”
So vegetarianism is good for your health, animals, and the environment. I cannot see a reason to not eliminate meat from your diet at LEAST one day a week.
