Eating less meat like taking “8 m cars off the road”

New research from Oxford University shows the difference high-and low-meat diets have on greenhouse gas emissions. A big meat eater’s diet produces an average of 10.24 kg of planet-warming greenhouse gasses each day. A low meat-eater produces almost half at 5.37 kg per day. Vegan diets half that again to 2.47 kg a day. If big UK meat-eaters were to cut out some of the meat from their diet, it would be “like taking 8 million cars off the road”.
