Climate Change Quiz – 15 Questions

Question 13: “If everyone ate no more than 90g of animal protein (meat, fish, eggs) per day, the global effort needed to stay on track for 2 degrees Celsius would drop by 50%”. Is this statement true or false?
False
No, this statement is true. According to the United Nations, switching to this healthy diet, as recommended by the Harvard Medical School, would halve the cost of stabilizing the carbon dioxide in our atmosphere at 450 parts per million. This is the threshold required to limit warming to 2 degrees Celsius. This “healthy diet” limits animal protein to 90g a day, and is complemented by many plant products like vegetables, beans and nuts to provide the full nutrition needed.
