"Who knew being a vegetarian was so carbon-footprint efficient?"

I think that this is pretty well evident, based on simple knowledge of the energetics of food chains.

Beef has one of the worst carbon footprints, especially grain fed beef raised on feedlots. It doesn't help that the methane production in these ruminants is an even worse GHG.

We don't need to remove beef from the diet (heaven forbid for us steak lovers), but to reduce it substantially.
