Vegetables Fight Global Warming | moby.com
It turns out there’s something anyone can do right now to make a big impact on global warming, says one climate researcher: Eat more veggies.
A new study of how much greenhouse gas is released into the atmosphere by the production of food shows that the difference between a meat-based and plant-based diet amounts to the same as driving an SUV versus a small sedan.
Not surprising. As one moves up in the food chain more space and energy is needed to provide the food. It’s only a question of time before humanity will have to become vegetarian.
