Interesting article. I was surprised to see Americans only eat 2x as much meat as the rest of the world, I would have thought it was much more.

I sure do like meat... mmmm..... Thinking of grilled sasuages tonight

An interesting calculation: the article says "....estimated that 2.2 pounds of beef .....burns enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for nearly 20 days."

100 watts for 20 days is 48kW, I am paying around 16cents per kilowatt, which is $7.68. $7.68 will buy 2.2lbs of inexpensive beef! the math works out!
