150 billion livestock, allegedly leave a bigger mark on earth than humans ?!

June 24, 2015

Move over automobiles, you’re no longer the greatest environmental evil.

You thought that with all our technology, 8 billion human beings have the biggest impact on the earth we live on. According to author of this article, we don’t. He suggests that in the unlikely event of running short of natural resources, we could simply replace some of the meat in our diet with veggies.

I had a really delicious steak for dinner Monday night. Juicy. Perfectly cooked. Seasoned just right. Some green beans on the side. Nice glass of wine too (also resource-intensive). Destroying the planet never felt so good.

Check out the article though, the numbers are quite impressive:
