Eat meat and save the world

This will probably be moved eventually, but here goes. Climate change protagonists have often said that raising animals for human consumption adds to global warming, but a new study says that a meatless diet is three times worse for the environment than a meat based diet.

 

"Contrary to recent headlines -- and a talk by actor Arnold Schwarzenegger at the United Nations Paris Climate Change Conference -- eating a vegetarian diet could contribute to climate change.

 

In fact, according to new research from Carnegie Mellon University, following the USDA recommendations to consume more fruits, vegetables, dairy and seafood is more harmful to the environment because those foods have relatively high resource uses and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per calorie. Published in Environment Systems and Decisions, the study measured the changes in energy use, blue water footprint and GHG emissions associated with U.S. food consumption patterns."

Yeah, but then you would have all those excess crude animals burping and farting all that methane.  Al Gore would never approve.
