How does food production affect the climate?

Last updated on March 27, 2019

About 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from food production. About half of this is from the livestock sector alone. And it’s not just the greenhouse gasses that are the problem. Food production occupies about 40% of the global land, uses about 70% of our fresh water (which is increasingly in short supply in many places in the world, leading to strife), causes many species to become extinct, and is responsible for large areas of deforestation (cutting down the rain forest so cattle can graze) and desertification (the process by which fertile land becomes desert, typically as a result of inappropriate agriculture).
