Ask the Expert: How to eat for a 1.5 degree world?

If we don’t change our own eating habits, how can we expect to make a difference in the food industry? 🧐

Greenhouse gas emissions from the way we consume food could add nearly 1 degree of warming to the Earth’s climate by 2100, according to a new study published in Nature Climate Change.

The food system is unquestionably critical to hitting our Paris Agreement climate targets — failure to rethink how we eat and produce food is failure to restore ecosystems, failure to protect the environmental and failure to improve human health.
