Dr. Rajendra Pachauri "Meat and Climate Change"

01 May 2009

Many thanks to The Climate Outreach Information Network (COIN) for providing the following online description and audio of Dr. Pachauri's important presentation:

We are delighted to present a recording of a lecture by joint Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Chair of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Dr Rajendra Pachauri. Dr Pachauri has made news recently by advocating eating less meat as a personal contribution to combating the problem of global warming and climate change. This advice has its basis in a recent report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation entitled "Livestock's Long Shadow" which showed that beef and dairy farming was responsible for a massive 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions - more than the entire global transport sector. The lecture is entitled "Global Warning - The impact of meat production and consumption on climate change."
