Rob Bailey, the author of the report said that authorities have done a lot in the case of deforestation and transportation, but to eradicate catastrophic warming people also have to think about what they eat.

It doesn't mean everyone has to be a vegetarian, but proper dietary changes ought to be done and healthy eating habits need to be encouraged, he further added.

Bailey also mentioned that keeping meat eating on a low level would not only help in lowering gas emission, but will also help reduce heart disease and cancer.
