Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wasn't arguing in favour of current meat consumption levels, I agree with you on that. But the deforestation argument doesn't really hold for Europe. It does at a global level. I'm dead against Brazil being encouraged (by the Doha Round at the WTO, for example) to go on slashing and burning virgin forest to grow soybeans for cattle feed. (It isn't even going to do anything to help feed Brazil's poor).
