Will eating less meat save the planet?
This is another excellent video from the guys at What I’ve Learned. It does a great job of discussing the common misconceptions relating to the farming of animal foods and their environmental impact.
If you would like to dig deeper into this subject, I highly recommend looking at the Sacred Cow resources, which include the Sacred Cow book, infographics and a Q&A video with one of the Sacred Cow authors Diana Rodgers.
There is also a great podcast with Will Harris, who owns the highly acclaimed White Oak Pastures Farm and is a leader in regenerative farming.
