What We’re Watching | Eating less Meat won’t save the Planet. Here’s Why

What I’ve Learned creator, Joseph Everett, recently published a video entitled Eating less Meat won’t save the Planet. Here’s Why. In it, he speaks with Dr. Frank Mitloehner, Professor and Air Quality Extension Specialist in the Department of Animal Science at UC Davis, about why cows have such a bad rap when it comes to the environment.

Have a watch, and let us know what you think.

For some background, you can also check out Dr. Mitloehner’s blog, including his December piece: What if the United States stopped eating meat?
