Are you all familiar with a gas called Methane? It’s a greenhouse gas, like carbon dioxide, only 25 times more dangerous to the climate! Unfortunately, it is found in a cow’s flatulence! According to the UN’ Food and Agriculture Organization, domesticated ruminants expel about a hundred million tons of methane per year! Woah! That’s way more than transportation in CO2 equivalent.But mostly, this means that methane emitted from livestock contributes for 18% of Global Warming. Crazy, right? So eating much less meat and dairy product is an effective way to reduce our personal carbon footprint and reduce our personal impact on the environment. Albert Einstein said that “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” Do something simple about climate change. Get more of your protein from vegetable sources.
