Stop Wasting Food
Reducing food waste around the world would help curb gas emissions that cause the global warming atmosphere, reducing some of the impacts of climate change such as extreme climates or rising sea levels. This was argued by scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), in a report published.
According to that work, up to 14 percent of emissions from agriculture in 2050 could be avoided with better distribution and use of food. "Agriculture is one of the main drivers of climate change, accounting for more than 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2010," said Prajal Pradhan, co-author of the study. "Therefore, preventing food from being lost and thrown away would help avoid unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change," he added.
