Eating less meat can help stop global warming, or at least slow it down -- because globally, livestock farming is responsible for nearly 20% of the greenhouse gas pollution caused by human activities. That is a full FIFTH of anthropogenic greenhouse gases.

For omnivores accustomed to making meat the centerpiece of a meal, this might be a challenge. So let's pledge to eat less meat at least one day a week, and help each other figure out how to do it deliciously. I'll be blogging about it regularly on the Stop Global Warming blog, in a series called Less-Meat Mondays.

Have a great less-meat recipe that you'd like share with the world? Send me the info and a photo, or a link to where you're blogging it, at emily -AT- change -DOT- org.

      I'm a vegetarian of three years, and I don't plan to give it up any time soon.  Not difficult at all.

      How about not eating meat EVERY day of the week? I;ve been a vegetarian since age 10 and a vegan for the past 3 years. I've never felt better. Plus, I'm saving the environment and the lives of innocent animals.

      Eating meat is barbaric and frankly primitive. EVOLVE.
