Your Call: How would reducing our intake of meat and dairy affect the drought?
On the July 16th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the meat and dairy industries, which make up 47 percent of California’s water footprint.
Does it make sense for California to be the nation’s largest dairy state? A pound of beef requires 1,847 gallons of water to produce. California Governor Jerry Brown said we should eat more veggie burgers. What if we ate veggie burgers instead of hamburgers? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
