Go Veg For The Planet!
Pop-quiz: which adds more greenhouse gasses to our atmosphere: motorized transportation or livestock? Producing 2.2 pounds of beef generates as much greenhouse gas as driving a car non-stop for 3 hours, according to a recent study. For more info on the food-climate connection, go to www.chesapeakeclimate.org.
Plus by being vegetarian, you will live longer, be healthier and you'll be freeing up grain that could feed the millions of staving people in the world. Not to mention that you will help stop the pain and suffering of billions of innocent beings every year in this country alone!

Since many of you have written in with as much passion as Cam on this subject, and asked us to speak to it as well, we present:
Climate Crisis Solution #31:
Livestock adds more greenhouse gases to our atmosphere than motorized transportation does, and rings in at a whopping 18% of total emissions.
So don't have a cow.
And stop being a pig.
EAT YOUR VEGGIES!
The gases coming from cows' rears are even worse, greenhouse-warming-wise, than ol' CO2. Enteric fermentation -- the ruminants' digestive process -- produces flatulence, a.k.a. methane, while manure releases nitrous oxide. Even more emissions come from collateral effects: deforestation for pasture, fertilizers for feed crops, and energy to run meatpacking plants. Visit GoVeg.com for more information.
