BBC News - Plant-based diet can fight climate change - UN
It’s understandable that people don’t want to be told what to eat, but when the science highlights how our current consumption is decimating our planet, it’s time to listen.
This IPCC report must be taken seriously. But change to tackle the #climateemergency won’t happen by moralising or beating people up to change the way they live. Governments must incentivise the shift away from meat to healthier, better plant-based diets.
A major report on land use and climate change says the West's high consumption of meat and dairy produce is fueling global warming
High meat and dairy consumption is fueling global warming. Climate change poses a threat to agriculture. How do we preserve the health of both our planet AND our global food supply? By making these products from plants or directly from cells.

Latest report: More plant-based diets can help fight climate change
"Plant-based diet can fight climate change - UN" I bet is loving the latest IPCC report that only focuses on land use and doesn't mention the ’T’ word that is the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions (hint: ✈️🚚⛴️🚂🚖).
Is someone going to take to task for this incorrect interpretation of what the report actually says? Anyone? ?
With today’s #IPCC land report, the science continues to add up: time to put our forks (and subsidies) where the facts are! BBC: “Plant-based diet can fight #climatechange - UN”
To fight the climate emergency we must demand that governments care and act. But we must be equally aware and careful about what we eat, how we travel, what fuel we use. Our future is also in our own hands, more than ever before in the history of humanity.
