The new report by the IPCC is an incredible opportunity for anyone trying to get people to eat fewer animal-based foods or go vegan! I have yet to see a government report that reviewed so much research into the carbon footprint of different diets. And, incredibly, what we all know to be true is going to be harder to refute:
That’s right. The report says a vegan diet has the LOWEST carbon footprint. Of course, the IPCC is not going to come out and promote veganism. But, this is a huge opportunity for all of us to point out the (a) importance of dietary change for addressing climate change and (b) that the best way to do this is through a vegan diet.
