Meatpacking contributes to global warming

Do you know what contributes more to global warming more than fossil fuels? Raising animals and slaughterhouses. Read the statistics. If you want to help global warming especially in our area you would shut down the meatpacking plants. I am not a vegan but I am aware of what the operation of plants like this cause. And the pollution ‚Äî air, water, amount of power needed, disposal of animal waste and carcasses and warming from raising the tens of thousands of the animals. Have you visited a meatpacking plant? It is the most disgusting thing you have ever seen. And all the fossil fuel the workers burn to get to and from the 24/7 shifts. Iowa’s air and temperature would be so much better without the animal industry. It’s in your own backyard.
