Food & Climate Change by Theo the City-Tech Blogger

Hey there. It’s Theo the Blogger. I ran across this interesting story recently about a study they’re doing in the UK. The article, written by Eric Worrall, is entitled “UK Researchers: Tax Food to Reduce Climate Change.”  Researchers believe that taxing food which produce a lot of greenhouse gases would reduce greenhouse emissions.  I found it interesting because I didn’t really know that food could be a contributor to greenhouse gases. The article went on to explain that producing such foods as beef, dairy products and protein based foods, are the likely culprits. That kind of sucks because I used to use a lot of protein when I worked out because it helps with Muscle Recovery.  To think that I was pumping out gas in the atmosphere which in turn will have a negative effect on the planet kind of makes me feel I’m in some way responsible.  But the biggest question is how would this affect world hunger and your local grocery stores which thrive from these products?
