Sounds very simple just eat veggies. What will you do with the millions of folks employed in the farming& ranching business not to mention the meat industry , plus restaurant and food industry.

Back in the day when I was teaching school children how to handmilk cows, I would tell them how the average milk cow needed to drink about 30 gallons of water a day to produce milk. Now imagine every milk cow in every dairy in the United States drinking 30 gallons each a day....start those calculators!!
