Why is white meat better than dark meat for the environment?

    If you’re talking about, say, the light and dark meat from a turkey, then they have an equal impact on the environment because they come from the same animal.

    If you’re asking about red meat versus poultry or fish, there are a few different points that keep coming up. For one, beef—the most widely consumed red meat—is highly inefficient, in terms of the amount of vegetable matter you have to feed a cow versus its end yield of caloric energy. Chickens and other animals require much less input for a comparable nutritional output. Another reason beef is less eco-friendly is that cattle farming is the cause of a large proportion of the world’s greenhouse gas.
