That’s the question asked by an article in Scientific American. They investigated the carbon footprints of a typical Kosher diet as opposed to that of a non-Kosher diet and while their conclusions weren’t conclusive – beef has a bigger carbon footprint than pork which has a bigger carbon footprint than chicken – Shrimp has a larger carbon footprint than Salmon, but Lobster has a smaller carbon footprint than Chilean Sea Bass – the article was still informative. Using the information dug up by researchers, it would be easy to alter one’s diet, Kosher or otherwise, in order to increase consumption of food that was better for the environment. Not surprisingly, vegetarian diets have the lowest carbon footprint. Just sayin’ is all…

But what carbon footprint do vegetarians have? 🙂
If I eat a kosher vegan, I would probably do less damage to the world than eating a chicken
Don’t know much about carbon footprints, but I know I save at least 66% off my grocery bills by not buying kosher products or utilizing the kosher market in the sthetl that accepts the “scrip” that is printed and laundered by the local yeshivas in tthat shtetl …WHICH I NO LONGER LIVE IN!!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
Does anyone with more legal knowledge than myself know how they can possibly get away with printing their own currency and requiring it to be used as part of the tuition? I’ve looked it up a couple of times and it still just seems damn illegal to me…
