Choice of Diet Affects the Environment

Given the "cash for clunkers" program by the US government, officials expect that a quarter-million gas guzzlers will be taken off the roads, which they plan will reduce greenhouse gases. On the other hand, "Cash for cluckers" is the suggestion by Chris Holbein, writer for The Sun News, in order to reduce carbon footprint. He believes that by encouraging meat-eaters to trade in their chicken for chickpeas and their pork chops for "fib ribs" is the best way to help the environment. Considering that the United Nations concluded that the meat industry generates approximately 40 percent more greenhouse gases than all the cars, trucks, SUVs, ships and planes in the world combined, transitioning to a plant-based diet seems to be the most effective way to curb global warming.
