How much does animal agriculture and eating meat contribute to global warming?

The burning of fossil fuels for energy and animal agriculture are two of the biggest contributors to global warming, along with deforestation. Globally, fossil fuel-based energy is responsible for about 60% of human greenhouse gas emissions, with deforestation at about 18%, and animal agriculture between 14% and 18% (estimates from the World Resources Institute and @unfao)

Hey dear followers of the #sustainabilitycommunity!! On the blog is a post about #sustainability waiting for you! (Link in bio)
.
.
This is what I think:
With the climatic changes, which are to be addressed, among other things, to human behavior, it becomes clear that society must change its habits and way of life. In order to continue to ensure a balanced ecological budget on the earth and to maintain a certain standard of living, a sustainable lifestyle have to be initiated.

Plz let me know your opinion what sustainability means to you here in the comments! πŸ˜‰

The election of our dotard president has proven our Founders’ worst fears into reality...free citizens MUST aspire to the acquisition of knowledge so we’re able to make informed decisions. The internet has provided us with the means. Jefferson shared all the tricks for how we can teach ourselves everything we need to know. MUST focus on this now that we’re fully aware of the downside of NOT having enough knowledge. #theresistance #impeachtrump #nature #environment #savetheplanet #climatechange #climateaction #climatealliance #botany #secrettortoise

With 100+ #environmentalists killed a year, #NGOs need to step up and speak out. Most independent #climate #activists risk their lives but our voices often go unheard. We want to be taken seriously so we are setting the challenge for participants to share their experience. Felix and Rodrigo are two #grassroots environmentalists from England and Paraguay. Felix has been building a grassroots turtle #conservation programme in #CostaRica and Rodrigo has worked to replicate the park ranger model from neighbouring countries in Paraguay's national parks. We are both working towards restoring conservation efforts in these two countries where we feel it is lacking and overcoming communication barriers within the activist community. Join us at #COY13 on Nov 03 to discuss solutions for a united front line movement. #latinamerica #extinction #thedefenders #environmentalism #paraguay #colombia #brazil #ecuador #amazon #peru #deforestation #globalwarming #climateaction #climateyouth

A student at UISC sums it up nicely! Did you know that the average Australian family wastes over $3,000 of food every year? Food wastage also costs the environment in greenhouse emissions, so next time, clean up your plate. #wastenot #portioncontrol #eatyourgreens #greenhouse #cleanyourplate

Kita (Indonesia) merupakan salah satu penghasil gas rumah kaca terbesar di dunia? Dan sudah hampir setahun sejak Indonesia meratifikasi Perjanjian Paris.
.
.
KLHK dalam dokumen Forest Reference Emission Level (FREL) mengungkapkan bahwa pada periode 1990-2013, Indonesia telah mengeluarkan emisi karbon sebesar 593 juta ton setara CO2 setiap tahun. Angka tersebut merujuk pada total emisi dari deforestasi, degradasi hutan, dan dekomposisi pada area gambut yang berhutan namun belum secara spesifik memperhitungkan kebakaran. Sehingga, rata-rata emisi per tahun yang dihasilkan dalam kurun waktu 23 tahun tersebut jauh lebih kecil dari emisi akibat kebakaran hutan dan lahan gambut pada tahun 2015 (1.100 juta ton emisi setara CO2).
.
.
Sejauh ini, Perjanjian Paris merupakan kesepakatan iklim pertama yang komprehensif di dunia.
.
.
Target dari Perjanjian Paris adalah... 1. Mengendalikan kenaikan suhu rata-rata global di bawah 2Β°C, di atas tingkat pra-industri dan membatasi kenaikan suhu menjadi 1,5 Β° C di atas tingkat pra-industri, dengan menyadari bahwa secara signifikan akan mengurangi risiko dan dampak dari perubahan iklim.
.
.
2. Meningkatkan kemampuan untuk beradaptasi terhadap dampak buruk perubahan iklim, meningkatkan ketahanan iklim, dan pengembangan emisi gas rumah kaca yang rendah, dengan cara yang tidak mengancam produksi pangan.
.
.
3. Membuat arus keuangan yang konsisten dengan jalur menuju emisi gas rumah kaca yang rendah dan pengembangan yang tahan iklim.
.
.
Berbagai macam pembahasan perubahan iklim serta kaitannya dengan Perjanjian Paris dan Indonesia bisa dicek di situs #WRIIndonesia ya, Kawan.

#Climate #change affects us all. Action on climate is a #global imperative, as #greenhouse #gases emitted by #human activities are warming the #Earth & causing changes in the global climate.The #EU is at the forefront of international efforts to combat #climatechange. So how is the EU tackling the challenges jointly with - for example- its #EasternPartnership countries? Together with the @undp, the EU works with #Armenia, #Azerbaijan, #Belarus, #Georgia, #Moldova, & #Ukraine in developing approaches for climate change #mitigation & #adaptation. #Follow our #Facebook page for all #infos. #EU4Climate #EuropeanUnion #ClimateAction #EuropeanCommission

GOOD NEWS in light of yesterday's #DumpDourson post. More than 50 public health scientists have signed a letter opposing #Dourson’s nomination for EPA's toxics office: "Dourson has built a career of abusing science to mischaracterize real-world chemical risks and in doing so has jeopardized public health, including the health of those most vulnerable among us like pregnant women and children." -

Perhaps in response, the Senate Committee has postponed the vote scheduled for today. I have called the US Senate of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) for a comment but was not given information, allowing me to speculate that the scientific letter in question may have made an impact.
Here is a work from 2010 by #Zikkurat (land-art project created by the artists #EdHoke, #TomasHoke and #ArminGuerino) on a peninsula at the reservoir of the river Drau in Austria.
