    That depends, I suppose. Individually, not really, but if everyone was vegetarian, then the whole carbon unfriendly factory farming side of things would phase out, and there'd be less clearing of forests and such to make pastures. As to the whole living longer thing, Soylent Green anyone?

    There's no doubt that raising crops to feed people is less resource intensive than raising crops to feed animals to feed people.

    No not in the slightest as yields from agricultural lands are a) far lower than from meat production and b) far more carbon intensive

    Compound that with the fact that majority of the agricultural lands would be needed to produce crops for bio fuels.

    The only option then is deforrestation which will only compond the problems of Climate Change and destabilisation of land.
