Meat-eaters behind much of global greenhouse emission

Global meat consumption has increased significantly in recent decades, with per capita consumption almost doubling since the early 1960s, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Whereas an average of 23.1 kilograms (50.8 pounds) of meat per person were consumed annually in the '60s, the figure had risen to 43.2 kilograms in 2019. Studies show that wealthier countries tend to consume more meat. Projections show that global per capita meat consumption will climb to 69.5 kilograms in 2022 — but the figure will be 27.6 kilograms in the developing world.
