    Diet For A Climate Crisis Planet

    How Animal Agriculture Is Accelerating the Climate Crisis

    June 21, 2021 (Sentient Media)

    "The meat and dairy industries have a much bigger part to play in the climate crisis than most people are willing to admit…[Animal agriculture’s contribution to the climate crisis is often overlooked… To avoid irreversible impacts, we must limit CO2 in the atmosphere to below 430 parts per million (ppm). This number is currently at 417 ppm, and is increasing by around 2.5 ppm every year…[Industrial animal farming] generates at least 37 percent of global GHG emissions…

    Factory farming drives land-use change and biodiversity loss—all of which depletes Earth’s natural carbon sequestration capabilities which increases the likelihood of irreversible climate change…The number of farmed animals is predicted to double by 2050. Half of all food-related emissions come from beef and lamb. Beef and dairy farming are also a major source of methane, which is 72x more effective at trapping heat compared to CO2…

    A large amount of farmland is used to grow crops for farmed animal feed. This kind of industrial monocropping is known to increase GHG emissions… Natural habitats are cleared to create grazing lands, which causes even more emissions. The top 5 meat and dairy corporations emit more GHGs than ExxonMobil, Shell, or BP…Because animal farming is responsible for so many of these emissions, we can significantly reduce our carbon footprint with a sustainable, plant-based diet…” click here for more
