The end of meat.

Stuart Jordan does an excellent job showing us what to fear as the earth's atmosphere becomes increasingly warm. Unfortunately, his emphasis is on technological and governmental influence, which is known to be lengthy and profit motivated. There is a possible way to mitigate the climate crisis without government or corporate influence. The livestock industries and their supporting corn and soybean growers are responsible for at least 18 percent of greenhouse gases, probably more. If we drastically reduce or end our meat consumption, there is an excellent chance that life on earth will continue into the future. If we don't, it's unlikely there will be one.
