Eat less meat on Mondays (or any day)
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.
