I don’t want to sound like one of the crazies from PETA but it is obvious – I mean insanely obvious – that if we had less people eating meat (any kind of meat) overall carbon emissions would decrease. The cost of food would decrease too, since raising livestock requires land, huge amounts of grain for feeding, water to drink, produces tons of waste, etc, etc.
While I would never suggest that eating meat should be outlawed, it would be nice to see some of our most concerned green citizens start to walk the walk and going vegetarian. Writing nice little blog posts that say you are concerned about mother earth might make you feel good but it really doesn’t do much in the real world.
And if you are interested in some anecdotal data from me, going vegetarian has improved my health big time.
