Member in the news: Jayson Lusk "Is meat really ruining the environment?"

Fox News (February 23, 2015) via video11.com
Oklahoma State University Professor Jayson Lusk on whether eating meat is ruining our environment.

Jayson's Blog:
"One of the hosts mentioned a Cambridge study showing that vegetarians and vegans have substantially lower environmental impacts than meat-eating diets.  A written piece at foxnews.com about the recommendations also mentions the same study.  [Jayson is unsure] how representative that cited study is.  [His] analysis suggests that vegetarians spend about the same amount on food as do meat eaters.  To the extent prices reflect resource use, that stat would suggest both diets are 'using up' similar levels of 'stuff.'"
