Abstract: Food is one of life’s constants. Yet, what we eat has major ramificati ons on global climate. Food producti on uses up major resources: it accounts for more than 70% of total freshwater use, over one-third of land use, and accounts for just shy of 25% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, of which 80% is livestock. Yes, that steak you just ate has had a direct impact on the world’s climate!
