Green Guru: What are the Environmental Effects of Eating Meat?

The numbers and images representing the environmental effects of meat production tell one side of the story; personal testimonials like Mike Tidwell’s in Audubon tell another. (For more cool graphics, check out this story--in PDF here--from Scientific American). And my personal choice doesn’t mean that what I have decided to eat—or not to eat—is right for you, but eating less meat is one way to reduce your environmental footprint. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to my facon (read: fake bacon), lettuce, and tomato sandwich.
