Should the carbon levels of food be included in nutritional facts?

    No. Carbon content is not relevant to human nutrition, so it would be out of place in the nutrition facts. However, I am an advocate of labeling the carbon cost of all products – how much carbon emissions that product was responsible for emitting. Currently this is not required in the United States, and indeed, it is difficult to figure out such a figure. But should a carbon label like this become mandatory, it would better inform consumers of the environmental impacts of the products they are buying, including that of food. In general, meat is far more water- and carbon-intensive than vegetarian foods.
