Live Earth Misses Tip to Reduce Global Warming

The Live Earth Concert was a great concert series to raise awareness on global warming. It had lots of tips for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

However, it forgot one big tip, as pointed out by the Integrity in Science Watch:
Absent from the discussion surrounding the event were the findings, reported in the United Nation Food and Agriculture Organization’s 2006 report, Livestock’s Long Shadow, that the livestock sector is responsible for fully 18 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions – more than the automotive industry, air travel, and all other forms of transport combined.

So eat less meat and save the planet!
