Eat Green – Save the World

Climate change advocate, and leading British academic Lord Stern, believes that people must turn to vegetarianism in an effort to conquer global warming.

Direct emissions of methane from cows and pigs is a significant source of greenhouse gases. Methane is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a global warming gas.

UN figures suggest that meat production is responsible for about 18 per cent of global carbon emissions, including the destruction of forest land for cattle ranching and the production of animal feeds such as soy.
