New Scientist Article on Greenhouse Gas Emissions

I found an interesting article about the impacts of your food choices, such as eating meat, eating local, and eating organic on emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases. I would somewhat discount the bad review meat gets because the gases animals give off from ruminating are different (in terms of the global carbon cycle) than those given off from fossil fuel use (although its true that transportation of feed is a significant amount of the emissions).
