This week National Public Radio's Morning Edition is covering the topic of meat. This morning, Wednesday, June 27, the environmental impact of meat eating was examined.
The web story introduces the topic with:
"As Allison Aubrey and Dan Charles reported today on Morning Edition, meat has more of an impact on the environment than any other food we eat. That's because livestock require so much more food, water, land, and energy than plants to raise and transport."
You'll find that web story, which includes a link that you can click to listen to the radio version, on line at
It's well worth listening to and sharing. Please comment below it; the story could definitely use some more veg-friendly comments. And please send positive feedback to Morning Edition including whatever comments you would like to make on the topic. Positive feedback will encourage similar coverage in the future, plus some comments will be read on air.
