Green Veggies and Climate Change 

Scientific Consensus: Earth’s Climate Is Warming. (NASA) 
Earth is warmer than it’s been in 125,000 years. (The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.)

Large-scale cow farming is a significant source of methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas contributor to climate change. … A single cow can release around 250-500 liters of methane a day. Pee-Yoo!  

Other than ocean heat rising and Arctic Sea ice diminishing, global warming increases water vapor in the atmosphere, which can lead to more frequent heavy rain, flooding and powerful snowstorms we are currently experiencing.   

A warmer, moister atmosphere over oceans makes it likely that the strongest hurricanes will be more intense, produce more rainfall, and possibly larger. Storms are becoming broader and more intense. Agricultural systems will likely be dealt a crippling blow. Sea levels are rising. OMG-Chicken Little was right! 

Good News!  Damage caused by Global Warming can be mitigated.  
Consuming a plant-forward diet rich in vegetables like leafy greens and lower in animal products, is one of the most important ways we can help to reduce carbon emissions, lower our dependence on fossil fuels, and do our part to ensure a healthier planet and food.
