Question: if it takes about 2500 gallons of water to produce...

Question details

If it takes about 2500 gallons of water to produce a pound of meat and 25 gallons are needed for a pound of wheat. Further, if it takes as much water to feed a meat eater for a month that it takes to feed a vegetarian for a year.

In addition, livestock emit considerable amounts methane gas, a greenhouse gas, and contributor to global climate change.

In about three paragraphs with references, would you recommend taking regulatory or legislative action to limit the production of meat and thereby reduce the consumption of water in that industry?

Why or why not?
