bareboards2 says... @coolhund @JustSaying Not just CO2 production. Also use of fresh water resources. Polluted water from feces collection (and yes, conventional agriculture is polluting water with chemical runoff.) In places, the cutting down of rain forest to create areas for beef production. The huge overhang of methane over New Zealand from all the farting sheep (that would be part of the CO2 mentioned. But I can't pass up the opportunity to actually type "farting sheep.") "Beautiful creatures" are in danger. Not just these. And I do eat meat. And drive my car. And am a hypocrite.
