The environmental group World Watch says that meat and dairy farming creates 51% of global man-made greenhouse gas emissions.

The digestive processes of animals release methane gas; the Amazon is cut down for cattle-grazing land, and fertilisers for vast amounts of animal feed crops release nitrous oxide.

These are all reasons to go vegan. Such a move would also greatly benefit our health and cause no animal suffering.
