Dramatic changes in diets around the world could help to ensure that global temperatures keep from rising above 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels. If the world piled on the veggies and cut back on steaks and hamburgers, the UK-based think tank Chatham House said in a report this week, the world could generate a quarter of the remaining emission reductions needed to keep warming from rising above 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) compared to pre-Industrial Age levels, a threshold at which most scientists fear the worst impacts of climate change would take hold. “Reducing meat consumption is a real win-win for health and for the climate,” Laura Wellesley, one of the report’s authors, said in a statement. “As governments look for strategies to close the Paris emissions gap quickly and cheaply, dietary change should be high on the list.”
