The NY Times had an editorial today pointing out a few of the environmental problems livestock pose. The two major issues:
-Global livestock grazing and feed production use “30 percent of the land surface of the planet.”
-livestock are responsible for about 18 percent of the global warming effect, more than transportations contribution.
The article states “the human passion for meat is certainly not about to end anytime soon,” but hopefully we are able to cut into that addiction.
