Why the contribution is important
The burning of fossil fuels for energy and animal agriculture are two of the biggest contributors to global warming, along with deforestation.
Animal agriculture is responsible for 13–18% of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions globally, and less in developed countries.
Meat consumption is also linked to Amazon deforestation and wild fires.
The intensive production of livestock is tearing down our forests, polluting our water, shifting the climate, and putting human health at risk.
Reducing our consumption of meat would also benefit our health.
