In an earlier post, I said that any hope of stopping the unraveling of the ecosphere depends on a paradigmatic shift of values, from craving wealth and the stuff it buys to nurturing living things. And I’ve argued a number of times that we need to reduce our consumption of unnecessary stuff. But cutting back on some things does more good than cutting back on other things. So if you’d like some big-bang-for-your-buck ideas, here’s one: Reduce or, better still, eliminate beef from your diet.
The link below will take you to an article from The Guardian, entitled: “Giving Up Beef Will Reduce Carbon Footprint More Than Cars, Says Expert.”
Future posts will include other ideas for consumption reduction with outsized results. (Big thanks to Sean and Jerry for the suggestion.)
