Giving up beef will reduce carbon footprint more than cars

Study shows red meat dwarfs others for environmental impact, using 28 times more land and 11 times water for pork or chicken

The heavy impact on the environment of meat production was known but the research shows a new scale and scope of damage, particularly for beef. The popular red meat requires 28 times more land to produce than pork or chicken, 11 times more water and results in five times more climate-warming emissions.
