  • Want to do your bit to fight climate change? UN scientists say eat more plants

    A new report from the United Nations says more people need to switch to a “plant-based” diet to combat climate change.

    The UN has ‘stopped short’ of saying we all need to become vegan, but especially in the West we need to significantly reduce the amount of meat we eat.

    UN scientists, the BBC reports, say if we ate less meat then the land could be used more effectively, and store more of the carbon emitted by humans.

    Livestock rearing also contributes to global warming through the methane gas the animals produce, but also via deforestation to expand pastures, for example.
