Chicken Isn't the Problem - Reducing Beef Consumption Is How We Can Help Save the Climate

  • A 2016 study shows that if, in 2050, the world ate half as much red meat as it's projected to, we could reduce annual emissions by an amount equivalent to the emissions from all U.S. power plants, agriculture systems, and homes combined.

  • Global halving of red meat consumption could avoid over 2 million deaths annually.

  • Put another way, global halving of red meat consumption could reduce overall global emissions by nearly 10% from current levels.
