FOOD and Climate Change

When the Scientists  reported on Climate Change last autumn one of the issues that was highlighted was the need to take into account what we eat when trying to reduce Greenhouse Gases. Roughly one third of all emitted GHGs originate from food consumption. Especially red meat is the culprit when GHGs emissions need to be reduced.

  One  efficient way to minimize the GHG emissions is to minimize the amount of food that go to waste. The GHG emitted during production will otherwise be for no purpose at all.
