UN Climate Report Says Eat Less Meat — That'd Mean Big Changes In Indiana
Agriculture accounts for about 9 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. A recent United Nations climate report says to reduce those emissions, people need to eat less meat. That would mean big changes in a state like Indiana. It's one of the top states for livestock — like hogs and turkeys — and livestock feed, like corn. The report says we need to devote less land to raising and feeding livestock and more to capturing emissions through things like cover crops, biofuels, and forests.
