Switching to a vegan diet saves at least 219,000 gallons of water eachyear, prevents the release of 1,533 lbs CO2 (697 kg), and spares the lives of 35 animals (other estimates run up to 70/80ish), stats from Factory Farming Awareness Coalition. The amounts of water involved in meat are actually pretty staggering, and the pollution output is enormous, they put it in huge holding pits in the ground (and then some flood like in Carolina takes that sewage and spreads it to homes near you).

The bitcoin thing floored me, I knew there was massive computational power involved in the mining, I just had no idea how much; the vegan stuff I already knew.
