Recent findings suggest that a flexitarian that eats chicken and fish but avoids eggs and dairy has a lower carbon impact than a vegetarian. So the water ain't that wet, it turns out.

You can see that the Dairy component of the No Beef diet is greater than the difference between it and the Vegetarian diet.
