The Belgian city of Ghent is about to become the first in the world to go vegetarian at least once a week.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8046970.stm

Starting this week there will be a regular weekly meatless day, in which civil servants and elected councillors will opt for vegetarian meals.
Ghent means to recognise the impact of livestock on the environment. The UN says livestock is responsible for nearly one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, hence Ghent's declaration of a weekly "veggie day".


Very cool.

As Captain Pike would say... I dare you to do better.

That's awesome! I wholeheartedly embrace anything that means more veggie entrees for the rest of us.
