I know that this is an odd question for "Domestic Politics," but I figured that it didn't exactly fit anywhere else either.
As a question:
Does being vegetarian help to reduce carbon emissions in a significant way? I am thinking about going vegetarian, or to at least severely reduce my intake of meat, milk, and eggs. By eating more vegetable based products and reducing animal products, would it be worth if more people did the same thing? I hope that by not eating as much animals, which relase lots of carbon, I can also reduce carbon by promoting the growth of plants. Would vegetarianism be worth it, at the very least, to reduce carbon emissions?
