“What would you be willing to do limit and/or regulate the meat industry in order to curb the climate crisis?”

In a video posted testerday on youtube, David Fisher asks, “What would you be willing to do limit and/or regulate the meat industry in order to curb the climate crisis?”

His point is that methane is a greenhouse gas in the same way that CO2 is, except that the science shows it packs a more potent global warming punch than CO2. In fact, it’s 20 times more potent than CO2 according to the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Also, United Nations (U.N.) recently said said that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined.

So — that’s an interesting question. What would you personally be willing to do? It’s really a question of values — what is more important to you?

  1. I’m wondering if this question you posed to your readers, was also to yourself, as far as what are YOU willing to give up/change/limit, etc. And since this post specifically refers to methane gas, which is produced in massive quantities by cows and other animals used for livestock.

    It begs the question, are you considering vegetarianism? Is this where you’re leaning with this post?

    I’m a vegetarian, and although my reasons for eliminating meat from my diet were not because of eco reasons but rather animal-rights based, i’m happy it also is environmentally-friendly.

    Many say, their is no such thing as an eco-friendly carnivore. Not i, but many say this.

    Thoughts?
