John Sutter is an award-winning journalist and my favorite environmentalist on CNN.
Yesterday, he wrote a compelling story on the inconvenient truth of beef consumption. You can read it here.
His quick and dirty findings: Eating a little more than a half pound of beef is equivalent to driving 70 miles!
Holy cow is right!
You don’t need to be a 100% committed veg-awarian to fight global climate change. By simply swapping meat from one meal a day, you can reduce emissions by the equivalent of 70 miles. That’s a pretty big deal.
