    Being vegetarian would have a bigger impact than switching to a Prius.

    I'm eating more chicken/tuna rather than beef/salmon anyway. Only ate lamb once in my life...hated it.

    That doesn't even take into account all the energy used and lost in tropospheres.

    I don't have time to look at the chart right now. I printed it off though, and I'll look at it when I'm idling in my SUV on the freeway tomorrow, with the A/C turned down to subzero. :-)

    Enjoy those fvcking lentils.

    You want my steak? You'll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

    Ezra Klein = major douche.

    Don't forget the fried tofu with broccoli and cashews on top of rice.

    I'd rather be a vegetarian than drive a Prius anyway.

    If my dad didn't come off of a cattle farm (and my other family members weren't such picky eaters), then chicken and poultry would probably be a lot more plentiful in my house, and our CO2 emissions would be significantly lowered. =/

    Aw well. I still like my occasional cheeseburger...

    FYI, just switching one day of the week to vegetarian meals makes up for all the carbon you would save by buying only locally produced food. Makes you wonder about which efforts are worth making...
