Foreign Policy has an article predicting that meat eating is on its way out, and quickly, because of gathering environmental pressures. The article goes on to state that once widespread vegetarianism takes hold, the substance of animal rights arguments will gain acceptance, and meat-eating will consequently be considered a criminal breech of ethical behavior. The author predicts meat consumption will go into a tailspin starting by 2025.
