check your nitrogen footprint too:
(we need to watch out for both ourmy response:
carbon and nitrogen footprints ...)
. do you want to reduce suicides,
get more wind energy,
and feel more satisfied?
eat more meat, and dump more
nitrous oxide into the atmosphere!
. sure there will be more global warming,
but you have so much wind energy,
you can afford to live underground,
where the weather won't bother you !

The detrimental impacts result because
a large fraction of the N used in
food and biofuel production,
and all of the N used in non-biofuel
(i.e. non-agricultural) energy production,
are lost to the environment.
Of the N used to produce food,
about 80% is lost before consumption,
and the remainder is lost after
consumption as human waste .
this reactive nitrogen is causing
a cascade of environmental changes:
smog, acid rain, forest dieback,
coastal ‘dead zones’, biodiversity loss,
stratospheric ozone depletion
and an enhanced greenhouse effect .
. Sustainable farms use practices that. eat less meat .
reduce their amount of fertilizer runoff
(manure or petroleum-based)
A protein-heavy diet is nitrogen-intensive,
Consider both vegetable and animal protein:
good for both your health and for the environment.
. chicken production is less N-intensive
than beef production.
In the US, about 30% of food is wasted .
Meat consumption in the developed world. more nitro-news .
needs to be cut 50 percent per person by 2050,
and industrial and agricultural emissions
need to be cut in half
to meet the IPCC's* aggressive strategy to
reduce the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide.
