1.Electricity production
2.Livestock
Positive effect
1.Electricity Production
40% of U.S. CO2 emissions come from electricity production
http://www.redorbit.com/news/science/1112787244/co2-carbon-dioxide-emissions-csiro-solar-sponge-021913/
burning coal accounts for 93% of emissions from the electric utility industry
http://technoblog.in/electronic-gadgets-day-day-life/
Every day, more electric gadgets flood the market
without alternative green energy sources
Negative effect
The contrarians will have the most to lose.
2.Livestock

Renewable energy provides substantial benefits for our climate, our health, and our economy.
It would allow us to replace carbon-intensive energy sources
There can be environmental impacts
Over half of the world’s forests have been destroyed in the last 10,000 or so years, the majority of this loss has occurred in the last 50 years
Tropical forests are necessary for stabilizing our climate and providing oxygen.
The biggest driver of deforestation is agriculture.
climate.nasa.gov
Forests remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere
deforestation releases CO2

Commodities
Livestock grazed
28 times more land
11 times more water and results in five times more climate-warming emissions.
160 times more land
producing 11 times more greenhouse gases.
Thanks for Listening!

Promote vegetarianism
Have localize and seasonal food
Develop the renewable energy
Have more vegetable and less meat.
Reduce the emission in the food processing, packaging and transportation.
Positive effect
These co-benefits will offset at least some of the costs of climate change mitigation, and should be taken into account in international negotiations.
