Change your diet to save the planet.
Food labelling with a mandatory carbon footprint rating is essential and must be made a legal requirement.
Until this measure is put in place a vigorous public educational program based on accepted scientific evidence should be instituted informing people of the relative environmental damage caused by the particular foods that they buy.
Why the contribution is important
Along with the burning of fossil fuels, scientific research identifies modern farming practices and the food that we buy in the shops as having the highest carbon footprint and the cause of the greatest environmental destruction on a global scale.
If we are to seriously address climate change, environmental destruction and the global extinction event that we humans have initiated, then one of the most fundamental, 'must do' measures that we need to undertake is to change what we eat.
