The Meat-Industrial Complex

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

A couple of recent articles discussing the environmental impact of meat production:

Vegetarian is the new Prius. (Alternet)

Pork’s Dirty Secret (Rolling Stone)

And check out the Unhappy Meals article in the linkblog in the sidebar. A great analysis of where we’ve gone wrong with our Western diet.

I will be happy when schools have all the money they need to educate our children and the military has to hold fetes and garage sales to buy bombs.

Why, as a society, do we get our priorities so completely backwards?
