"Eating Grass-Fed Beef Isn’t as Climate-Friendly as You May Think"

"With the global population climbing, researchers wanted to know whether grazing could help rein in climate change. This is what they learned. "

"Of the many terms attached to our burgers and steaks, "sustainable" and "grass-fed" often sit next to each other. But a new study finds that raising livestock on grassy pastures is far from sustainable and doesn't have the climate benefits proponents have claimed.

"Can we eat our way out of the climate problem by eating more grass-fed beef?" Tara Garnett, of the Food Climate Research Network at Oxford University in the UK, and her colleagues asked. The answer, they found, is no.

Eating grass-fed beef doesn't get climate-conscious carnivores off the hook."
