If we eat meat, and the animals who become meat eat soy … the logical way to help stop soy-related deforestation is to stop eating meat. WWF Germany conducted a report that found that if every citizen of Germany were to lower their consumption of meat, just enough to meet the country’s dietary guidelines, they would be able to save million acres of agricultural land (825,000 hectares of which are specifically in South America). Additionally, if less people ate meat, more of the crops grown to feed livestock could be redirected to feed people. In fact, if everyone in America were to remove meat from their diet, there would be enough extra grain grown to feed billion people ! So … how’s tofu looking compared to that burger now?
A little boy wanted to know the sum of one plus one. First he asked a physicist, who said, If one is matter, and the other is antimatter, then the answer is zero. But if one is a critical mass of uranium and the other is a critical mass of uranium, then that's an explosive question. Unenlightened, the little boy asked a biologist. She said, Are we talking bacteria, mice or whales? And for how long? In desperation, the boy hired an accountant. The accountant peered closely at the little boy and said, Hmmm. One plus one? Tell me, little boy, how much do you want one plus one to be?
