orty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity – an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy now and for the future.
A new study by researchers at the University of Chicago shows that a vegetarian diet can do more to reduce your planetary footprint than driving a hybrid car. In an interview, Professor Gidon Eshel, a geophysicist and oceanographer states, "the less animal-based food you eat, and the more you replace those calories with plant-based food, the better off you are, in terms of your health as well as your contributions to the health of the planet". I had the honor of working with Gidon as a student many moons ago and can tell you that he really practices what he preaches!
