Livestock Production, Environment, and Going Green

Several months ago, back in June of 2010, I wrote up a story on the environmental impact of eating meat based on a new-at-the-time United Nations (UN) report on the matter. I recently ran across another good story on this topic on a friend’s site, Global Warming is Real, titled “Eating Less Meat to Cut CO2 Emissions” that resulted in a follow-up.

Looking at greenhouse gas emissions, some livestock production facts, and toxic waste lagoons, the general point is the same: if you want to go green, you should really consider going vegetarian (at least partially, on some days, or for some meals…).
