From the land and water needed to raise feed and the methane produced at the end of digestion, “Cattle are actually mini fossil-fuel, greenhouse gas producers.” So says Sujatha Bergen, head of health campaigns at the NRDC.

She explains the trade-offs for helping to reduce climate change and says, “Starting with your fork is much less daunting for many people.”
