Food is Relevant to Climate Protection
15% of your CO2 emission
Food (which includes agriculture, industry, transportation, material and equipment) is responsible for a significant portion of energy consumption and CO2 emission. We are often not aware of these hidden values as they are not readily apparent. Our diet is heavily influenced by meat consumption. Meat production requires much energy and many resources, which makes it very extravagant. In this case, it is particularly true – less is more!
It would not be possible for all the people in the world to eat as much meat as we do. Neither the land nor the energy exists to grow that much animal feed.
