    Why Eating Meat Defeats Beating Climate Change

    Our meat addiction is going to kill our chances of beating climate change; The case for shifting to a plant-based diet, immediately.

    Eillie Anzillotti, October 18, 2018 (Fast Company)

    “…New research from the World Resources Institute finds that, taking into account trends in population growth and meat consumption, agriculture alone could…[make it impossible to limit] global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius…[WRI mapped trends in population growth and animal-based food consumption from 1961 and extrapolated them out to 2050, and found people in 2050 will probably eat 70% more meat and dairy, and 80% more beef…[Beef creates] around 30 times the amount of emissions required to produce the same caloric quantity of beans. And that’s not even considering land-use implications…

    …[Producing beef requires both land to grow feed, and land upon which cows can graze or pasture…[That makes it] radically less efficient than just using that land to grow produce [like beans] that humans can consume…[P]lant-based alternatives are gaining momentum…[and WRI and others have] launched a new initiative to get restaurants, companies, and hospitals to up their share of plant-based food offerings with a goal of reducing food emissions by 25% by 2030… Researchers have found that if everyone in the U.S. immediately swapped out beef for beans, we could hit 50% to 75% of our greenhouse-gas-reductions targets for the year 2020…” click here for more
