Climate-Conscious in Cincinnati

Dear Aggie,

I’ve heard cutting out meat from my diet will help save the world. Is that true?

Climate-Conscious in Cincinnati

Dear Climate-Conscious,

Thanks so much for writing in and asking such a timely question. We actually wrote a short article about this recently to help clear things up. Here’s an excerpt and a link to the whole article:

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the environmental and animal welfare impacts of animal agriculture. First we were told to avoid processed meat; then we learned beef was the new villain; and now ALL meat is being vilified as bad for human health, animal welfare and the planet.

But is meat’s bad rap really deserved? While it’s great to see more people talking about the impact of our diets on the planet and animal welfare, encouraging the world to go meat-free misses the point entirely. Read on to see why.

Thanks again for writing and let us know what you think!
