Meeting Climate Targets May Require Reducing Meat and Dairy Consumption

Caption: The line shows how much total emissions must be reduced to meet the two degree target with large certainty. The bars show future agricultural emissions at current trends (blue), if agricultural productivity increases and technical measures are implemented (orange), and if technical measures are combined with a 75 percent reduction in meat and dairy consumption (green). The distance between the bars and the line shows the total possible magnitude of emissions from energy, transport, industry and deforestation.
