I didn’t wanna have to say it, but: WE TOLD YOU SOOOOOO!!!

Time Magazine recently published a global warming survival guide that included a tip we’ve been preaching for years: Skip The Steak!

From the article: 

“Which is responsible for more global warming: your BMW or your Big Mac? Believe it or not, it’s the burger. The international meat industry generates roughly 18% of the world’s greenhouse-gas emissions—even more than transportation—according to a report last year from the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization.”

“If you switch to vegetarianism, you can shrink your carbon footprint by up to 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide a year, according to research by the University of Chicago. Trading a standard car for a hybrid cuts only about one ton—and isn’t as tasty.”

Every now and then we’ll get a comment on the blog that says, ” Yo! Isn’t this supposed to be a green blog? Why you always blabbing about veganism.” This is why! It’s time to get real — vegetarianism and environmentalism are the same darn thing! So drop that Big Mac with nastiness and step on over to the green side. We promise you’ll love it!
