Interesting article. I don't disagree with the general conclusions that vegetarianism/veganism is far from inconsistent with local food-system development, and that the ONLY way to make life on earth sustainable and healthy for humans is to phase out virtually all meat. The article rambles rather far afield, however, with some ad hominem and straw person-ish attacks that are interesting but peripheral. The author seems to want to pick fights in some odd places. I'd have preferred a more narrowly focused argument that made its case with fewer distractions.
