Moreover, Mc Williams provide the example of how grass grazing cows emit more methane than grain-fed cow and the pastured organic chicken can contribute the global warming phenomenon. He understands that feeding animal like humane method is better than the industrial production of animal and we can prevent the animal abuse by fattening chicken in confinement. However, the sustainable meat production is doubtful and unrealistic because we need a huge amount of natural resource such as land and space for grass grazing cows and chicken.
