PostSubject: UN Priority Products and Materials report   Sun Jun 19, 2011 2:47 am

Here's the UN report . It's called Assessing the Environmental Impacts of Consumption and Production - Priority Products and Materials & covers basically how we are slowly eating away at the planets resources. The basic idea they are putting forward is (amongst others) a radical shift in western diets towards a more plant based eating style. Here's a couple of quotes:
Quote :
From such detailed studies it becomes apparent that the use of private cars (within mobility), the consumption of meat and dairy products (within food consumption), and electric appliances cause a disproportionately large share of environmental impacts (Sec1:51)

Both emissions and land use depend strongly on diets. Animal products, both meat and dairy, in general require more resources and cause higher emissions than plant-based alternatives. (Sec1:78-79)
