The Climate Killer You Don’t Want to Talk About: Your Steak and Your Hamburger

In our discussions about global warming and climate change, one topic rarely enters the conversation: the effect our diet has on the planet. It’s massive. Raising cows for meat, by the most conservative measures, contributes to 15% of global emissions. Some studies have it much higher. Either way, it’s catastrophic. For perspective, if the planet were to switch to a plant-based diet, greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by 25%. That’s the power our diets have in changing the course of our planet. Thomas Page and CNN put together a powerful story, with an accompanying video by Video by Nick Paton Walsh, Ingrid Formanek and Christian Streib, breaking down the reality of meat production and it’s effects on our environment.
