I read the full article and it stated that someone would have to eat 9 lbs of fruits and vegetables to produce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by a more conventional diet. There also was no mention of the fact that plants absorb CO2 during their growth, and use it along with sunlight and water and other nutrients, to grow. Not so with cattle, pigs, chickens, etc. that add to our carbon footprint. Also no mention of the number of people who garden and require no means of transport for the foods they grow and consume. In my opinion this article leaves out many variables that need to be weighed into the equation.
