I heard, on NPR Michigan Radio this morning, our Michigan governor addressing the Farm Bureau meeting, and stating that he felt the farmers would be pleased to know that the Michigan legislature has altered many of the regulations that are protective of the environment.
Until then, I had not thought of farmers as a group who are against protecting the environment. I had thought farmers went to contour farming and no-till farming to stop erosion and protect the soil, etc. Now, though, I guess the change-over to giant, agri-business feedlot farms and their runoff problems are probably the issue.
So it would seem to me that the more we can get away from eating meat, the better.
If we are to go on living together on this Earth, we must all be responsible for it.

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.
