Lesser consumption of animal products is necessary to save the world from the worst impacts of climate change, UN report says
Agriculture, particularly meat and dairy products, accounts for 70% of global freshwater consumption, 38% of the total land use and 19% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, says the report, which has been launched to coincide with UN World Environment day on Saturday."
Great article, thanks for posting! I just can't see how they can implement the changes needed though. I am an eternal optimist but people do not like being told what they should and shouldn't eat. I think there needs to be so much more education because people really don't understand the implications of eating a diet laden with animal products. However, it's so wonderful the UN are taking this seriously - very positive indeed:)
