United Nations climate change experts call for urgent reduction of meat consumption. In its “Climate Change and Land” report recently approved by world governments in Geneva, Switzerland, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) urged for an immediate decrease in meat and dairy consumption as a key policy response to the global warming crisis. The panel of 107 leading scientists examined over 7,000 research studies and found that the vegan diet is highest in carbon mitigation potential, followed by the vegetarian diet. Notably, livestock rearing led to almost 75% of worldwide deforestation and massive production of heat-trapping methane gas. However, a plant-based diet can free up millions of square kilometers of land for carbon-absorbing forests and reduce up to eight gigatons of carbon emissions annually by 2050. Our gratefulness for your comprehensive study and vital recommendations, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. May all governments take swift and bold actions to promote the Earth-saving vegan lifestyle to their cherished citizens, in Heaven’s abiding care.
