    wcutler submitted a new resource:

    Plants: Conservation Resource Links

    Links related to invasive plants, habitat loss, climate change, and conservation topics

    Discuss resources on the list, and submit suggestions for ones to be added to the list.

    IMO, the overriding issues are human over-population and Industrial agriculture (whether soybeans or cattle) -- not the mere fact of eating animal products in moderation (more moderation than at present though, that's for sure).​
    Both these articles are written with a focus on environmental impact, not ethical issues, and they are very clear about that.

    If you want to discuss these environmental issues rather than the resources themselves, I would suggest doing so in a separate thread about the issue you want to discuss. Thanks.
