Big Meat Don't Like It: EAT-Lancet Diet For Climate Crisis
Most of us are aware of the recent reports that have been piling up, and agree that we have reached the boundaries of life on earth.
There is a climate crisis, and change must happen or we reap the consequences which already will be daunting based on what we have done to date.
How to EAT our way to healthy bodies and healthy planet
A much anticipated scientific report from EAT-Lancet was released yesterday:
"The diet is a “win-win”, according to the scientists, as it would save at least 11 million people a year from deaths caused by unhealthy food while preventing the collapse of the natural world that humanity depends upon."@guardian #EATLancet #foodcanfixit https://t.co/74acvjiC9O

The first of 30+ a number of regional EAT-Lance Launches was streamed from Oslo today after three years of anticipation, a work involving some of the best medical and sustainability thinkers on the planet. Their conclusion: we can eat our way to a healthier live for the coming population of 10 billion, and contribute to solving the climate crisis to boot.

jb and I just happened to be sitting down to lunch, and still I am amazed at the timing that we were able to catch the livestream of this event.
The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health brings together more than 30 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy and sustainable diet.
The Commission is delivering the first full scientific review of what constitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system, and which actions can support and speed up food system transformation.
Big Meat Don't Like It
This is not a vegan diet, nor is it vegetarian. But asking for a restructuring of big ag and reduction of meat intake got Big Meat all in an uproar.
