    BEEF WORSE FOR CLIMATE THAN CARS?

    Global warming study raises the steaks; Latest research shows that eating less red meat would have a greater impact in cutting carbon emissions than giving up cars.

    Damian Carrington, 31 July 2014 (Mail & Guardian Africa)

    “Beef’s environmental impact dwarfs that of other meat, including chicken and pork…[and] eating less red meat would be a better way for people to cut carbon emissions than giving up their cars [according to Land, irrigation water, greenhouse gas, and reactive nitrogen burdens of meat, eggs, and dairy production… published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences]…[R]ed meat requires 28 times more land to produce than pork or chicken, 11 times more water and results in five times more climate-warming emissions. When compared with staples such as potatoes, wheat and rice, the impact of beef per calorie is even more extreme, requiring 160 times more land and producing 11 times more greenhouse gases…[Agriculture] causes 15% of all emissions, half of which are from livestock…[and] the huge amounts of grain and water needed to raise cattle is a concern to experts worried about feeding another two billion people by 2050…[C]utting subsidies for meat production would be the least controversial way to reduce its consumption [according to researchers]…” click here for more
