Getting everyone to be vegetarian would be ideal for the environment, but I think that environmental groups would have more luck if they focused first on getting people to eat less meat before convincing them to stop eating meat entirely. Maybe this particular plan will work in Italy, but meat is such a huge part of so many people's diets in America that I don't think most people would even know what to replace it with. Most of us were raised on the bullshit "6-12 servings of grains" food pyramid and grains won't make you feel full like meat will. We have a long way to go.
