Is the impact of almond milk higher than regular dairy

Back in 2014, Tom Philpott of Mother Jones wrote an article called, “Lay Off the Almond Milk, You Ignorant Hipsters,” (a title his editors chose, he admitted) in which he basically says almond milk is a waste of perfectly good almonds. But I have to disagree, and I’ve dug into the data a bit for some justification.

Absolutely not, dairy products have a massive footprint of water consumption, CO2 and methane and field usage to feed the cows. In the other side, almond milk needs few resources to be produced and you know? It's super tasty!!
