Four hours later I was at Texas Roadhouse.
Me: Did you know it takes 20 times the amount of fossil fuels to produce this kind of meat?
Dave: Yes. And the protein ratio for the vegetation consumed by cattle is 10:1. So if we just ate all the vegetables they eat we'd get 10 times the protein anyway.
Me: Wow. We really should try to eat more healthy. It's not just better for us but better for the environment.
(Pause. We both dig into some tasty barbecue.)
Me: Hey, are you still hungry?? I am. Want some more ribs?
One day I'll go green. But it definitely wasn't last night. Last night it was all about the burgundy colored barbecue sauce. Yum!
