A report by the Climate & Clean Air Coalition and the United Nations Environment Programme urges a reduction in meat and dairy consumption to mitigate human-caused methane emissions. It advises a 45% decrease in methane output by 2030 by focusing on fossil fuel use, landfills and wastewater, and animal livestock raising to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Furthermore, 26 million metric tons of lost crops, 255,000 premature fatalities, and 775,000 asthma-related hospital cases could be avoided annually. Importantly, behavioral changes, including the adoption of a plant-based diet, could reduce 65 to 80 million metric tons of methane emissions per year during the next few decades.
Our gratitude, Climate & Clean Air Coalition and United Nations Environment Programme, for your paper. In Divine light, may all countries urgently transition to the Earth-saving vegan way.
