No we do not need to be vegatarian by 2050. Does anyone realize just how many acres of landscapes will need to be converted to crop fields to feed a nation of vegatarians? I do think we probably eat too much meat in this country, but really, for everyone to become vegatarian has its downfalls as well.

They say a lot of greenhouse emissions are used getting soy and cereals for cattle; if we were all to turn vegatarian we would need this to eat ourselves. Our crops would be on such a large scale that it wouldn't be economical to grow organic veg, as in order to get the nutrients that meat supplies we would have to eat much more veg, so we would have to spray the land in fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals. I've nothing against vegatarians, I just think there has to be a balance. Eating meat will not damage the planet, just as long as it is done humanely and sustainably, and paying heed to nature's balance at the same time.

I eat veg and meat but I think it is wrong to eat to much otherwise you would get big and fat.
