The day I heard about that 3 years ago, I switched to soy-milk and sped up my becoming a vegetarian goal. I still eat meat, just very little, though never pork since the amount of shit (pig shit is so awful that it doesn't qualify for the term manure) per pound of consumable meat is terrible.
Beef is much much worse.
There's an urban myth not sure how true it is, that over it's lifetime a cow is worse than a Range Rover for the enviroment. That said, that is in Britain, so no large amounts of CO2 etc being produced by transporting it.
Oh yeah, and even Top Gear said so
