« Levels of climate-heating gases in the atmosphere hit record levels in 2020, despite coronavirus-related lockdowns, the UN’s World Meteorological Organization has announced.

The concentration of carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas, is now 50% higher than before the Industrial Revolution sparked the mass burning of fossil fuels. Methane levels have more than doubled since 1750. All key greenhouse gases (GHG) rose faster in 2020 than the average for the previous decade and this trend has continued in 2021, the WMO report found. »

Transportation only accounts for a tiny proportion of greenhouse emissions for food. The type of food plays a way larger role.

THANK YOU JOE MANCHIN FOR DESTROYING THE CLIMATE PROVISIONS IN THE BUILD BACK BETTER BILL

(the US may end up passing the most consequential piece of Climate legislation in US history but it could’ve been even MORE)

It’s actually the biggest factor about greenhouse emissions for food and in general btw :toofunny: so this is a huge lie :toofunny:

I had a lesson about this topic (the factors) last week btw

Highly doubt it costs more than the farm land and resources required to grow.

The transnational corporations that get away with polluting our environment play the biggest role. What we do is essentially pointless;we have a very small impact in the grand scale of things. Obviously we should still be as sustainable as possible but that won’t be the main solution.

To me, switching the type of food we consume (i.e. switching more from meat to plants) is much more effective than cutting down on transportation emissions. And yes, there's only so much we can do.

If you buy local foods from your own territory for example you won’t participate to this very polluted transportation 

In the biggest supermarkets fructs, vegetables, meat...etc come from everywhere on the planet and so they traveled with polluted transports 

Plus we need to respect the weather season

Cause of course if you live in England but you buy tomatoes from Spain during the winter... no sense at all

Sea freight emissions are not even that high

Not when it comes from a region next to Paris :awkney:

Why is that transportation acceptable? What's the threshold for you?
