Sustainability isn't a problem as long as we're all willing to lose our humanity in the process of "satisfying" the increase in demand. Little is said about the actual methods that slaughterhouses will be using in the future to do so.
At least we have a choice.

Hunter-Gatherers, primitivists, Natives etc all hunted only what they required and didn't waste anything
Eight people from the Alaska Native village of Point Hope have been charged in connection with a mass slaughter of caribou.
The eight men, ranging in ages from 18 to 30, allegedly shot more than 100 caribou during a July 4 hunt last year. Most of the animals were discarded in the tundra, authorities said.
Inupiat Eskimo elders and leaders from the village said the Alaska State Troopers exaggerated the number of dead animals They conducted their own investigation and found no wrongdoing.
The eight men face charges of wanton waste and failure to salvage meat.

Well, if certain people could be trusted not to harvest before it's time, we embalm and bury huge quantities of high-bio-available protein every day.

I'm unclear why there is vitriol in the responses here.
Republicans: The Democrats want to split their own party between omnivores and herbivores? How is this a political negative?
Democrats: You've got more variety to choose a candidate to represent your lifestyle.
Independents and Other Political Parties: Source of innovative ideas for the two party system to adopt. If they're popular enough, they'll make it onto one of the major party tickets.
Omnivores: Herbivores want to save the animals Because they think humans are evil destroyers of the earth
Herbivores: You now have a choice with inflated Whole Foods groceries and overpriced restaurants. Maybe buying more will drop the price.
I do believe in treating animals as humanely as possible, supporting the efforts of Certified Humane. I've met people food pushing from all sides: omnivores, vegetarian, and vegan (herbivores). I find it offensive on all fronts. Let's keep our diets to ourselves and help one another devote time towards doing much more constructive activities.
