  • Difference between Climatarian and Vegetarian

Climatarian Flexitarian or Vegetarian: The food we eat has a huge impact on our planet. Agriculture accounts for about half of the habitable land on Earth and accounts for a quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Meat and dairy in particular account for about 14.5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. So changing what we eat can help reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable farming. But there are many ‘climate-friendly’ diets. Completely plant-based vegetarian diets are more prevalent, and egg and dairy diets are also thought to be included.

There are also ‘flexitarian’ diets, where three-quarters of the meat and dairy diet is replaced by a plant-based diet. The ‘flexitarian’ diet is a form of diet in which mostly plant-based foods are preferred, while meat and other animal products are allowed. It can be considered a semi-vegetarian diet. Climatic diet.

A pattern that was created by the non-profit organization ‘Climate Network’ and is considered healthy, climate friendly and nature friendly. The diet still allows you to eat meat and other high-emission foods such as pork, poultry, fish, dairy products and eggs. So this is a redesign of the ‘climate carnivore diet’. However, the diet encourages you to cut down on non-vegetarian food overall, while avoiding food waste and choosing seasonal, local foods.

water and land use

To save our planet, we should also consider the use of both water and land. For example, beef requires about 15,000 liters of water per kg. Some vegetarian foods such as avocados and almonds also have high water content, but overall the water consumption of a standard meat-based diet is about half that of a plant-based diet. The reduced need for agricultural land will help prevent deforestation and protect biodiversity. The land could also be used to re-forest and regenerate large areas that would become a natural reservoir of carbon dioxide.

A plant-based diet is also generally healthy. Meat, especially highly processed meat, has been linked to major health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. However, meat, dairy and fish are the main sources of some essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, zinc, iodine and vitamin B12. What is the ideal global diet to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, prevent habitat destruction and help you live longer? Well I suggest being an ‘ultra-flexitarian’ – a diet of mostly plant-based foods, but one that allows extreme amounts of meat and dairy products, but completely prohibits red and processed meats.
