Eating Well Without Destroying the Climate

Perhaps the biggest climate decision around food that most of us will make is the choice of proteins. Red meats like beef and lamb have a dramatically higher carbon footprint than plant-based options such as beans or tofu. For an equal supply of protein, beef produces 20-25 times as much greenhouse gas emissions on average as beans, and about 12 times as much as tofu. #ecofriendly

Corrective Climate Change Ahead

Global greenhouse gas emissions during the last ten years have been the highest in Human History according to a leaked report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Without drastic action, ‘temperatures will increase by 4 to 5 centigrade that could reap devastating effects on the planet’ they said. Personally I don’t see the global population being able to respond quickly enough. That said, I am an optimist, because I believe in realignment; in that the earth has a resilient, self-regulating eco-system.
