These trawlers scrape along the ocean floor, clear-cutting coral reefs and everything else in their path. Hydraulic dredges scoop up huge chunks of the ocean floor to sift out scallops, clams, and oysters. Most of what the fishing fleets pull in isn’t even eaten by human beings; half is fed to animals raised for food, and about 30 million tons each year are just tossed back into the ocean, dead, with disastrous and irreversible consequences for the natural biological balance. Then there is aquaculture (fish farming), which is increasing at a rate of more than 10 percent annually.

Look at the fossil evidence recently published in Nature. About 5,000 years ago, when people in Britain figured out how to domesticate cattle, sheep, and pigs, they promptly switched from fish-eating to meat-eating. A similar revolution swept North America about 700 years ago. My daughter has been demanding meat ever since she tasted it in baby food. I’ve seen vegetarian friends lust at the thought of a burger. We’re carnivores. We evolved that way. If we were just beasts, that would end the discussion.

The answer: It depends. While a vegan diet produces fewer greenhouse gases, in some cases raising cattle livestock may be a more efficient use of land. Instead of trying to convert people to a vegetarian diet, Koerner argues, it would be wiser to try to get people to limit their meat consumption. Koerner writes The Green Lantern column for Slate. A s a longtime vegetarian, I’ve always been confident that my diet is better for the planet than that of your typical carnivore. But a vegan pal of mine says I could be doing a lot more, by rejecting all animal products—no eggs, no milk, not even the occasional bowl of mac ’n cheese.
