INTERVIEW: Maneka Ghandi on the connection between Climate Change and a meat eating diet by Kombatrock
UN negotiators are in Durban, South Africa this week debating the complex issue of reducing the world’s CO2 emissions in order to slow down global climate change. Yet there is little discussion inside the UN talks of reducing another leading greenhouse gas: methane. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, Methane is over 20 times more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Much of the world’s livestock including sheep and cattle generate methane as a by-product of digestion. On average, each dairy cow belches and farts out 500 litres of methane daily accounting for 16% of the world’s annual methane emissions. The 60 million methane tons that cattle generate annually is almost one fifth of all global methane emissions. Maneka Ghandi, former Indian Minister of Environment and Forests and a current member of the Parliament of India is in Durban asking UN officials why they are not considering switching to a vegan diet as a legitimate way to combat global warming.
The United Nations climate change talks continued in Durban, South Africa today with civil society organizations and environmental activists ramping up pressure on UN delegates to come to a legitimate and binding treaty to address runaway climate change. Of particular concern for some countries is the the Green Climate Fund and how it will be implemented. Kelly Benjamin is at the climate talks in Durban and brings us this report:
