Eating Less Meat Hits the Global Climate Conversation

Meat production on a corporate scale, is a huge emitter of greenhouse gases (not to mention a huge drain on our water supply here in CA). 

A lot of vegetarians and environmentalists alike have been talking about this on the fringes.  It's finally hit the discussion boards at global climate change talks. Check out this NYT article here

"Producing a pound of beef creates 11 times as much greenhouse gas emission as a pound of chicken and 100 times more than a pound of carrot."
