Your Daily Thread (from L.A.) and Chelsea Green (from Vermont) are now partners to raise awareness about the meat. The raising of livestock, specifically the factory farming of animals, is a major contributor of green house gases that pollute our planet. The raising of these animals creates 18% of global greenhouse gases, more than all of the world’s cars and SUVS combined. I just loved the initiative and I think this is very fair and something pretty easy to do.
That’s why during May/2009 they’re inviting everybody to cut the meat out of diets and highlighting the environmental effects that meat production takes on our planet. Each person who choses to go “meatless” will individually keep up to 420 lbs of carbon emissions out of the air.
