No-Beef Climate Solution

Meat production accounts for approximately a fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions; therefore, India's Environment Minister, Jairam Ramesh, suggests stop eating beef as solution to reduce greenhouse gases emission. R. K. Pachauri, the leading Indian climate change scientist who headed the UN's influential panel on climate change, said "If you look at the beef cycle today, you first clear forests, which increases emissions, then you feed cattle all kinds of food grain, which is energy intensive, and then you kill and refrigerate these animals, and then they are transported long distances. Then you buy it and refrigerate it. If you count all the emissions associated with this entire cycle, it is huge."

Transition to a plant-based diet helps to restore the environment by reducing not only greenhouse gases emissions, but also air, water and soil pollution as well as deforestation. It is our sacred responsibility to take care of God's Creation to the best of our abilities.
