Right now in South America (that's the big chunk of land to our south with a bunch of "minorities" on it) is cutting down rain forest to create land for cows to feed. (thats a bad thing)
quote: Simple facts about cows Cows require 100's of gallons of water that many areas can not provide. They also produce methane that is something like 9x stronger of a green house gas then C02. (ICE emissions) Only in the past few years have farms started to harness the solid waste of cows to produce fuel and power their farms, however most farms do not do that so the gas just escapes into the atmosphere. (also a bad thing)
