Earlier Presentations and Papers
Description: Animal agriculture has a massive impact on climate change. In June 2010, the United Nations Environment Programme’s International Panel for Sustainable Resource Management reported on activities and resources that contribute disproportionately to environmental pressures and impacts. In its report, the panel said, “a substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products”. This presentation supports that view. (First presented in February, 2011)
Key Issues (inter-related):
- Inherent inefficiency
- Greenhouse gases and other warming agents

This is my my submission, “The urgent need for a general transition to a plant-based diet“, focusing primarily on climate change issues, with some comments on health.
