For people interesting in the impact of man made climate change McDonalds is a really interesting case, its more about how they have changed agriculture, the impact of how companies like Mcdonalds go about farming livestock and the impact that has had on humanity is astounding. Its not just climate change, its the destruction of arable land, its the impact of anti-biotic resistance, animal rights, sugar addiction, obesity, other health concerns. I could go on but its loads of different factors, not very many of them good other than a cheep crappy burger at the end served by a teenager who may or may not have spat on it.
