Eat Your Greens for the Planet

This excellent article on Time magazine explores the relationship between what we eat and global warming. When it comes to cutting your carbon footprint, the reality is that what you eat is more important than what you drive since modern agriculture contributes to about 30% of global greenhouse-gas emissions, which is far more than transportation. The lower you eat on the food chain, the better it is for the planet. Reducing your carbon footprint is easy and cheaper than buying a hybrid car. For example, one serving of steamed vegetables leaves a carbon footprint of 0.18 lb., one serving of pasta 0.39 lb., one of cheese 2.26 lb and grilled steak 10.5 lb.

Taking care of our planet is part of our sacred role as stewards of God's Creation. Transitioning to a plant-base diet is one of the most effective ways to help reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.
