A little off topic, but impressive and food-releated!

These are dramatic figures: If we do not reduce our meat consumption, it will cost us US$ 20 000 000 000 000 by the year 2050!! That's the conclusion of a study by Elke Stehfest and colleagues of the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, see http://www.newscient...eat-could-cu...

$20 trillion or $20000 billion, this is the share of the costs of fighting the consequences of global warming that we could save by reducing meat consumption globally - or pay the price! With the current economic crisis in mind, we simply cannot afford to ignore this situation. Let's contribute to a change in our diets, away from animal products, away from livestock, let's explore alternatives (vegetarian meat, in-vitro-meat, alternatives to egg-products, …)!
