Eating some meat better for the environment than going vegetarian

Eating some meat better for the environment than going vegetarian

As per a new study by researchers from Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in Baltimore, a ’flexitarian’ diet which includes one portion of meat a day has a lower carbon footprint than a vegetarian diet with more milk and dairy products. This is partly because raising dairy cows requires large amounts of energy and land, as well as fertilizers to grow fodder, emitting greenhouse gases.

you know, I like to laugh at the vegan movement as much as anyone, but to me this study seems flawed. Wouldn't we expect that if there was less demand for cows people would produce less cows? It kind of feels like they are insinuating that cow populations are just going to spiral out of control on their own unless we keep them in check by eating them. https://youtu.be/FQMbXvn2RNI
