Extreme Weather

The world has only a few years to stop catastrophic warming

“The world is not ready for the impacts of climate change, including more extreme weather and the likelihood that populated parts of the planet could be rendered uninhabitable, says the planet’s leading body of climate scientists in a major new UN report. The 772 scientists who wrote and edited the report argue that world leaders have only a few years left to reduce carbon emissions enough to avoid catastrophic warming, which would produce significant sea level rise and large-scale shifts in temperatures that would dramatically disrupt human life and natural ecosystems”

Global warming has displaced 26 million & costs $125 billion annually

“Earth’s gradual rise in temperature has resulted in 26 million people displaced, $125 billion in annual economic losses and more than 300,000 yearly deaths, as climate change speeds desertification and magnifies scourges from malnutrition to flooding”

Ignoring methane and nitrous oxide, livestock emit 7.1gt CO2 a year (warming impact over 100 years)

“Food systems emit 30% of all human greenhouse emissions… Livestock is responsible for 7.1 GtCO2 estimate a year of greenhouse gas emissions, just under 15% of the global total, and equivalent to tailpipe emissions from all the world’s vehicles”

“Livestock and their by-products actually account for at least 32.6 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year, or 51% of annual worldwide GHG emission”
