So if 314 million Americans go Meatless on Monday's it reduces GHG's by 0.2%. So if 10,000 Norway's soldiers go Meatless on Monday what did they accomplish? A weakened Army.
Like it or not, you need to have facts from the High Plains Journal
In the United States, 6 percent of all GHGs are emitted from agriculture. Of that, 3.4 percent of the total are from livestock agriculture while it is believed that roughly 1.4 percent come from beef production. Mitloehner has made the case that if Meatless Monday were to be mandated with all 314 million Americans, the reduction of GHGs would be only 0.2 percent. This is so insignificant in the big picture, and we all need to be armed with facts like this that we can repeat as often as necessary to set the record straight.
