CO2 and pollution due to industrial meat production

We are eating in the Western world far too much meat that is good for our health. And for the planet.

Industrial meat production generates meat of a very poor quality and taste, full of anti-biotics and chemical residuals. For the planet, it pollutes massively the water and earth, and produces masses of extreme greenhouse gasses, such as NOx.

A very interesting article outlining the total cost of that steak you buy in the supermarket. Lets try to consume much less meat, and to switch to local, organic and ethically raised animal meat.
