The Future is Carbon Farming, Not Cattle Ranching, says Impossible Foods CEO
A new study published Feb. 1 in the journal PLOS Climate suggests that phasing out animal agriculture over the next 15 years would have the same effect as a 68% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions through the end of the century.
