Mapping the world's opinions

Several forms of pollution - e.g. deforestation, eutrophication of water, leaching of nitrates, antibacterial resistence, release of ammonia, nitrous oxides and methane in the atmosphere - are associated to livestock production. Should we all go vegan to prevent major environmental pollution?

No - The consumption of livestock products should be diminished but not necessarily eliminated

The negative environmental impact of meat-based and dairy product can be reduced by diminishing their consumption to a sustainable level

No - livestock production is not a truly significant cause of pollution

The putative environmental benefits associated to ending meat and dairy consumption are not significative when compared to other forms of pollution such as the one from the transportation or the chemical processing sectors
