According to a November 2006 study put out by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the global livestock business generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined. Now environmental groups around the country are using the scientific study to encourage vegetarianism among environmentalists.

There was an interesting article in today's NY Times about the uneasy relationship between environmentalists, climatologists (and, specifically, Al Gore) and the vegetarian and animal rights activists who see a clear solution to the problem of global warming. Matt Prescott, Manager of vegan campaigns for PETA, charges in the article that "you just cannot be a meat-eating environmentalist", and his opinion is characteristic of the views of his organization and others like it. To them, Gore's decision to focus on vehicle emissions is a clear abnegation of the reality of the situation. Check out the article here. It's well worth the read.
