There are many reasons to become a vegan or a vegetarian. One of the popular reasons is because it’s better for the environment… but is it really? Our resident vegetarian Anthony Carboni did some digging to find the answer.

One-third of our greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture
http://www.nature.com/news/one-third-of-our-greenhouse-gas-emissions-come-from-agriculture-1.11708
“The global food system, from fertilizer manufacture to food storage and packaging, is responsible for up to one-third of all human-caused greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the latest figures from the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), a partnership of 15 research centres around the world.”

Vegetarian or omnivore: The environmental implications of diet

“The argument that a vegetarian diet is more planet-friendly than a carnivorous one is straightforward: If we feed plants to animals, and then eat the animals, we use more resources and produce more greenhouse gases than if we simply eat the plants.”

What You Eat Matters

“Americans’ appetite for meat and dairy — billions of pounds a year from billions of animals — takes a toll on our health, the environment, climate and animal welfare.”

Environmental Vegetarianism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_vegetarianism
“Environmental vegetarianism is the practice of vegetarianism or veganism based on the indications that animal production, particularly by intensive agriculture, is environmentally unsustainable.”

Vegetarianism and the Environment
http://umurj.org/feature-articles/vegetarianism-and-the-environment/
“Along with the current trend of eating ‘organic’ and ‘local’ foods, one of the hot topics that has sparked debate among scholars and bloggers alike is the question of whether or not being a vegetarian affects the environment.”

  1. Damm I jus had a vision something took over the world but I don't know was it god or some other god who sent a warrior down to save us
    Weird thing is I don't believe in gods or stuff heck I'm not even a Christian freaking me out

  2. I love how everyone keeps saying: If only it were like this! / If only people were like this! UMM stop being a hypocrite. Its not like your doing anything about it…

  3. More animals die when you follow a vegetarian diet. Chick males are grind because they don’t produce eggs. And the calf’s are taken away from their mother immediately so they don’t drink your milk! And then they are killed a month after to be sold as veil. You are a compassionate person, just go vegan. For the planet, the animals and for your health.🙏

  4. But If you think of the process of the soil used to grow fruits and vegetables on farm, then you would be disgusted on whAt it's made of, right?

  5. So vegans say the whole world must go vegan. And I asked myself this. What about animal shelters for carnivorous animals such as lions? If the world was vegan, would we deny those lions their food? How would we feed them while maintaining our vegan morals? (That lion can no longer live in the wild due to an injury)

    I assume vegans would say “human sacrifice, or feed them people who are on death row”. Because they cannot simply feed them dead or sick animals, as it violates their vegan morals

    What are your solutions? Would we let the lions die because of survival of the fittest?

  6. You forgot to mention that more crops are produced for livestock than humans which also largely affects greenhouse gasses

  7. Could you please tell me, how growing more broccolis is more destructive than farming on sigle stomach animals? I really would like to know the answer. Because for me it doesn't make sense, those animals we eat consume the veggies the crops we harnest. And yet you are saying they are less destructive? Aren't they are taking more energy to be raised and then slaughtered?

  8. I'm trying to eat less meat a little at a time. if I had to completely eating meat to save the world I would do it because fruits veggies and grains are yummy too. that most of my diet anyway.

  9. so basically instead of killing the cows for food…. you want to kill them to save our environment…. and y'all call meat eaters savages… smh

  10. vegetarian good for environment? yes, but they are 2 kind of vegetarian, the hypocrite parasite that they have a magic tree that give fish, cow milk, eggs etc. this type of "vegetarian" are bad for environments

  11. They forgot to mention that vegetarianism would lead to an increase of agriculture which can cause large scale deforestation and algal blooms

  12. Went vegan to reduce climate change… I disagree that a diet containing animal products could do as little harm.

  13. I don't think the solution is to stop eating meat but to eat less meat. Like i try to eat less meat and add more veggies in my plate.
