French Researchers: Cutting back on beef is the secret ingredient to reaching climate goals
Cutting agriculture-related emissions and deforestation will require a major change in diet.
That is what researchers in France say. Their study showed replacing 20% of global beef and lamb consumption with meat-textured proteins grown in stainless steel vats would cut emissions in half by 2050.
The United Nations says the global food system makes up about a third of all carbon pollution.
Researchers say making these cuts is key to reaching the Paris Agreement climate targets.
