Meat-Free Future

Research shows that reducing meat and dairy consumption would help reduce global warming by 80 percent.

Recently, Global Environmental Change published a study showing that reducing consumption of meat and dairy products, in conjunction with reformed farming practices, would reduce methane and nitrous oxide emissions by more than 80 percent by 2055. Alexander Popp, lead author of the report, says that the first step is transitioning consumers away from meat and dairy products through education, and then making technical changes to agriculture methods. The study concludes that non-carbon dioxide emissions could be lowered to levels less than those recorded in 1995 if animal agriculture is reduced by 25 percent each decade from 2015 to 2055.
