Didn’t see the reasoning behind eating less meat, other than the dubious claim that animals create…
Russell Pompea

Hi Russel, I can just describe some factors relating meat consumption to GHGs emissions:

1) Livestock farms are one of the major emitters, this because cattle digesting system release methane into the environment, in a way similar to biogas production; ironically, it is also a concerning GHG. So, big farms have emission problems

2) As mentioned in the article here, forests are shrinking also because of the increasing demand for meat; to have enough feed for breeding animals

If you think it as an equation, it is evident that more emissions and less plants, that usually absorbs those gases, leads to more greenhouse effect; with all the consequences related to it

Hope my reasoning was clear, best wishes
