There was no mention of the tons of CO2 all the shipping NAFTA
and consumers create. Nor does it mention the massive CO2 created
with meat production. The entire report is a CO2 nightmare.

Two of the questions on the Carbon footprint calculator were

1) In season food = 0.04 metric tons of CO2e per year

2) Imported food and goods = 0.09 metric tons of CO2e per year

Nor was there any mention of what effect the devaluation of the
peso / Canidian dollar has on workers in Mexico and Canada.
