Pursuing the Paris Climate Accord Goals: Martin Heller

Martine Heller talks about sustainable diets and the process of producing food in the context of the Paris Climate Accord.

A recent study (optional reading), co-authored by Martin Heller, explored how much variability there is in the GHGs of American diets and found that 46% of the total emissions from food came from the diets of just 1/5 of the population.

We also discuss the concept of “food miles” and where the majority of our food-related GHG emissions come from.
