New article from Washington Post promoting a vegetarian or vegan diet for the environment.

Nice to see. Hopefully some people will read it and take it seriously.

Not surprising the backlash that was given when the idea of reducing meat consumption was first introduced though. It's so frustrating that when people don't want to hear something, they ignore it and get mad at the person who let them in on the truth.

I agree FitChick, it is frustrating.

When I inform otherwise environmentally friendly people about the impact of meat consumption they are not receptive to the idea. Change light bulbs, recycle, get fuel efficient cars, but the idea of altering their diet that will make them more healthy AND help the environment, that is a no-go. Apparently there has to be a paradigm shift for that to happen.

Good to see such information at a major media outlet such as Washington Post.

Not saying don't do it, but going vegan isn't going to end global warming .
