CLIMATE EMERGENCY: Scientists urge people to eat less meat. A ‘meat tax’ will do it.


THE SOLUTION IS A 'MEAT TAX': Scientists are imploring the public to eat less meat. Eliminating meat and dairy products from the diet can reduce the carbon footprint from food by up to 73%.

SABRINA BARR:Scientists are imploring members of the public to eat less meat as they warn that the world is facing a climate emergency. In a paper published today in journal BioScience, a global team of scientists have declared a climate emergency, detailing six areas of action they say must be addressed that can help slow down the impact of climate change.

The paper, which features more than 11,000 scientist signatories from 153 countries, was authored by scientists from the University of Sydney, Oregon State University, the University of Cape Town and Tufts University. The team of researchers conducted a scientific analysis of more than 40 years of publicly available data, which included factors such as deforestation, fertility rates and carbon emissions.

One of the six areas of action mentioned by the academic experts was food, where they said that the general public should aim to “eat mostly plants and consume fewer animal products”. They explained that doing so “would significantly reduce emissions of methane and other greenhouse gases and free up agricultural lands for growing human food rather than livestock feed”…

The researchers stated that if an individual cuts meat and dairy products from their diet, this can reduce their carbon footprint from food by up to 73 per cent. Emissions from livestock around the world currently account for 14.5 per cent of all anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations states’.
