Activists vegans love to cite environmental impacts of consuming meat, yet often forget the impacts of their own diets which are often shipped in from far away places and have significant impacts on local economies. By over driving the demand for grain from Bolivia and asparagus from Peru, they have effectively (and singlehandedly) caused over farming, depletion of water sources, destruction of rain forests, driven the local price of grain higher than chicken and caused the locals to switch to fast food diets which are cheaper than they food they grow to export to the US and Europe to feed "luxury" diets.
