I got up on it for a minute yesterday when someone started going off about how people could just eat naturally-raised beef and they'd be being nice to animals, and that would wrap the world in a pretty pink bow. But as i told them, this issue is not just about saving the fuzzy baby animals. More every day it is about being part of creating a world that we all would like to live in. I responded to those comments yesterday with as much eloquence as i could muster, but it pales when i start searchin the web, and find succinct written words like this:
"Eating 20% less meat (per person) saves as much carbon as downgrading from a sedan to a hybrid."
