The Meat You Eat is Cranking Up the Heat
e nited ations has sent tremors through the livestock indus-try with a new report that states, “e livestock sector emerges asone o the top two or three most signicant contributors to themost serious environmental problems, at every scale rom localto global.” e report shows that livestock production accountsor more greenhouse gases than automobiles. For every calorie o meat consumed, at least ten calories o ossil uels were requiredto produce that meat. nimal agriculture takes up 70% o allagricultural land, and 30% o the total land surace o the planet.oday, 70% o “slash-and-burned” mazon rainorest is usedor pasture land, and eed crops cover much o the remainder.e ultimate ramications o the report suggest that the aver-age merican can do more to reduce global warming emissionsby adjusting their meat eating habits than by switching to driv-ing the most uel ecient car currently on the market. egativeenvironmental impacts can be greatly reduced by reducing (oreliminating) meat consumption and buying locally grown andsustainably produced meats, dairy and animal products.
