Author Mark Bittman recently appeared on The Colbert Report to plug his new book Food Matters: A Guide To Concious Eating.

Bittman, who claims to be a vegan until 6 pm, shares with Colbert that:

“It’s been said by the United Nations that about a fifth or a sixth of all greenhouse gases are produced by industrialized livestock production.”

“You treat the animals like they’re widgets, you churn out 10 billion a year in this country — which means about  30 animals per person in the United States — we eat those, it increases global warming. To the extend you eat less of that meat, you reduce global warming. ”

We think Bittman is on to something. Check out the entire interview below!
