Go vegetarian if you really want to. Just don't fool yourself that it's an easy way to a cruelty-free, pollution-free, exploitation-free way of life. Don't fool yourself you are "saving the rain forest" while you are participating in the ruination of the prairie and temperate plains. You're going to have to work just as hard as conscientious meat eaters.
