Eating to Save the World

EATING TO SAVE THE WORLD We all know now that Global warming is having a devastating effect on the planet. To find out how serious the problem is, we are going to hear 25 Alarming Global Warming Statistics by List25 and look at a Report by the United Nations that looks at solutions. Surprisingly the report places the responsibility back into our hands, giving each individual the power to reduce huge amounts of GreenHouse Gas Emissions. You will discover how changing what you eat can reduce your CO2 emissions by 1.5 tons per year, something that the United Nations is saying is necessary to save the world.
