Consumption Of Plant-Based Meats Surges In The Pandemic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Great news for the environment and the effort to reduce greehouse gases.  Cattle, including cows and other ruminants emit an enormous amount of methane which traps about 20X more heat than CO2, per volume.  In addition, livestock requires far more water to produce the same amount of meat as plant-based substitutes.  And livestock depends on vast areas of farmland to to grow the meat ...  Farmland which could be used to feed people.

 

As coronavirus spreads in slaughterhouses and meat shortages become more common, large numbers of people are turning to plant-based meat products.  Previously, mostly a restaurant item, plant based meat products are beginning to appear prominently on grocery shelves.
