According to Future In Our Hands, an international organization that promotes “Meatless Mondays,” the average Norwegian eats more than 1,200 animals over the course of their life, including 1,147 chickens, 22 sheep, six cattle and 2.6 deer. But starting next week, that number will go down for members of the Norwegian Army. Those soldiers will be participating in Meatless Mondays in an effort to curb climate change.

“It’s a step to protect our climate. The idea is to serve food that’s respectful of the environment,” said spokesman Eystein Kvarving. “It’s not about saving money. It’s about being more concerned for our climate, more ecologically friendly, and also healthier.”

One of Norway’s main bases has already started the new meatless routine and the change will roll out to other units, including those overseas. They predict that this weekly vegetarian menu change will cut the army’s meat consumption by 150 tons!

    And a bigger moron to put out a story suggesting that.
