From David Suzukie's Green Guide

Producing animal protein requires ten times as much energy and produces ten times as many greenhouse gas emissions as plant protein. Compared with plant protein, red meat is responsible for six to twenty times the land use, five to seventeen times the water pollution, and five to twenty-five times the water use.

from David Suzuki's Green Guide .... check it out from your local library, or better yet buy a copy, then pass it on to a friend ..... I wish the world had many more David Suzukis!
