AMERICANS ATE 20 PERCENT LESS MEAT IN LAST DECADE 03/29/2017

A new report published by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) revealed that Americans cut their diet-related carbon footprint by 10 percent between 2004 and 2015. NRDC attributed a large portion of this change—which avoided 271 million metric tons of climate-changing pollution—to a 19 percent drop in meat consumption, accounting for avoiding 185 million metric tons of pollution. NRDC revealed that producing one kilogram (approximately two pounds) of beef emits 26 kg (more than 57 pounds) of carbon dioxide, the highest footprint of the 197 foods the report examined and a contributor of 34 percent of the total diet-related per capita climate-warming pollution in 2014.
