It wasn’t so long ago that “environmentalists” were either blissfully ignorant or willfully unaware of the massive impact animal agriculture has on climate change.

Here’s the bottom line: animals eat about 40 times what they produce as meat or dairy. It’s wildly inefficient. We could feed the world, end human hunger, stop destroying forests for cattle grazing and cropland… if we all just switched to the many plant-based alternatives that exist today. Got it? Not so complicated.
