New report: We need to transition to a global plant-based economy

A new report has been published by Dr. Sailesh Rao, Executive Director of Climate Healers and Executive Producer of documentaries including What The Health and Cowspiracy. The findings show that animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change, responsible for 87% of human-made greenhouse gas emissions.

The report further states we need to transition to a global plant-based economy first and that blindly eliminating fossil fuel usage first will accelerate the warming of the planet. The transition to a global plant-based economy has the potential to sequester over 2000 Giga tons (Gt) of CO2 in regenerating soils and vegetation, returning atmospheric greenhouse gas levels to the “safe zone” of under 350 parts per million (ppm) of CO2 equivalent, while restoring the biodiversity of the planet and healing its climate.
