Say boo to moo

Thanks for the suggestion! That’s really helpful!
18% of the world’s carbon dioxide is produced by cows. That’s more than cars, planes, and all other forms of transportation combined.
The folks at AlterNet have compiled a great list of reasons (environmental and otherwise) to say boo to moo.
I can hear our French readers now, “La monde sans fromage? Quelle horreur!” And, certainly, our American readers are wondering how they’re going to manage without that bowl of Cheerios in the morning. It takes some getting used to, but soy and rice milk both make nice alternatives to cow juice for cereal. Soy cheese, yogurt, sour cream, and ice cream are pretty good as well. Especially the ice cream. Mmm, ice cream.
It’s important to note that soy is not a panacea. Do your homework to know which brands are environmentally responsible in the way they source their beans.
Like most things, cutting back is better than doing nothing. If nothing else, next time you’re at Starbucks, make it a soy latte.
