Warren reminds us
that livestock contributes 18% of global greenhouse emissions; meat also isn't that healthy in great quantities. The British medical journal Lancet recommends that that the industrial world chomp on 10% less meat to limit greenhouse gas emissions, whilst enhancing human health, going on to say, "For the world's higher-income populations, greenhouse-gas emissions from meat-eating warrant the same scrutiny as do those from driving and flying." 10% doesn't sound so tough.
