Beef up your standard, and go against the grain…
To meet with the following criteria is paramount as this is your very life at stake.

Get down to the grass roots!
There is no grain of sense and talk about being green with envy. Don’t feed into the lies.
Get the truth here.
Many people choose to abstain from eating meat. This is because…they believe it’s the morally superior, environmentally friendly choice. There are challenges with this thought process…according to the book, “The Vegetarian Myth,” written by ex-vegan…Lierre Keith.
In the book, she debates: saving the planet…and ending the suffering found in factory farms…is not achievable by refusing to consume animals. These issues are achievable only by boycotting modern agricultural practices…which Keith calls “the most destructive thing that people have done to the planet.”
The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization released a 2006 report titled, “Livestock’s Role in Climate Change and Air Pollution.” In this report, they estimate: 18% of the world’s use of man-made, greenhouse-gas emissions is from livestock production. This information was heralded by vegetarians…and environmentalists alike…as proof. Proof of what? To eat meat is bad for people, but it’s also bad for the entire planet.
It’s important to realize…this detrimental effect comes from modern farming practices, it doesn’t come from cows raised naturally. The differences between these two situations are quite extreme. Literally, we’re talking about two very different animals…and two totally separate industries. Each industry has its own way of farming, and they vary greatly from one another. Thus, the environmental impact…for each one…is like night and day.
“ … the first mistake is in assuming that factory farming—a practice that is barely fifty years old—is the only way to raise animals. Their [vegetarians'] calculations on energy used, calories consumed, humans unfed, are all based on the notion that animals eat grain.
You can feed grain to animals, but it is not the diet for which they were designed. Grain didn’t exist until humans domesticated annual grasses, at most 12,000 years ago, while aurochs, the wild progenitors of the domestic cow, were around for two million years before that.
For most of human history, browsers and grazers haven’t been in competition with humans. They ate what we couldn’t eat—cellulose—and turned it into what we could—protein and fat.
Grain will dramatically increase the growth rate of beef cattle (there’s a reason for the expression “cornfed”) and the milk production of dairy cows. It will also kill them. The delicate bacterial balance of a cow’s rumen will go acid and turn septic.
Chickens get fatty liver disease if fed grain exclusively, and they don’t need any grain to survive. Sheep and goats, also ruminants, should really never touch the stuff.”
The carbon footprint…of conventional farming…is mainly due to the unnatural feed given to these animals. This farming practice requires lots of fossil fuels. Many people haven’t fully considered the broad use of fossil fuels…from fertilizers and pesticides sprayed onto the crop to transport of the feed.
Grass does not require fossil fuels to grow…rotating pastures does this job instead.
What this all boils down to…
It’s easy to argue against factory-farms and other products of the corrupted agricultural system. However, this argument shows glaringly obvious flaws when applied to traditional farming.
