    With 60 BILLION food animals on the planet, this should be our first step in the Climate March!

    “As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Worldwatch Institute, “Is Meat Sustainable?”

    “If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains… the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund

    “A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy.” ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy

    There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other. But no one wants to talk about it…

      I am highly skeptical of the numbers which the anti-meat activists have been throwing around for years. From the little I have read, they are ridiculously inflated.

      Richard Carrier addressed the issue here:

      He talks about the problems with the statistics toward the end.

      Jim Corcoran is obviously an activist and guilty of a bit of hyperbole—-but only a bit, because his basic message IS valid and his figures are perhaps not as “ridiculously” inflated as Gingerbaker suggests.

      There is no denying the simple math and biology underlying food webs and food chains. It takes many tons of “producers” (plants and plankton) to support a much smaller weight of primary consumers (antelope and sardines), which in turn supports an even smaller weight (100’s of pounds) of critters that prey on the grazers (lions and tuna and humans). It IS true that “cutting out the middleman” would produce energy savings and lower CO2 release, although the cited figures do seem high.

      There is no doubt that it would be better for both the biosphere and human health if we went back to the days when our ancestors consumed much less meat and way more vegetable matter, but that’s not the first step on the Climate March because it’s not the biggest threat to the planet’s survival. The first step is dealing with the growth-consumerism-free market mindset that has us burning the huge quantities of fossil fuels that lead to global warming.
