Meat Consumption and Climate Change

I found this article on the BBC main page. It points out some of the shortcomings of the current COP21 summit being held in Paris, but also offers some hope for the future. At any rate, I'm glad to see such a piece appear on the front page of a major news media outlet. Public awareness of this needs to grow.

They won't talk about animal agriculture. Why would they? They already complain about "having it shoved down their throats".

They will tell people to drive less, take shorter showers, recycle, that sort of thing. Nothing that actually helps.

What you just said brought back strong memories of Cowspiracy... I could hardly believe what I saw/heard in that documentary. Supposed environmentalist LEADERS pretending (I would think) to know NOTHING about how animal agriculture affects the environment. It blew my mind seeing that. I think it is on netflix, I may just go and watch it again...

Yes and please give it 5 stars. Lots of haters are down voting it on Netflix so it doesn't show in suggestions for people.
