How much can the average American household help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by avoiding red meat and dairy products?

    In a study by Carnegie Mellon researcher Christopher Weber, an average household produces 8.1 metric tons of greenhouse gases annually from food consumption. He also states the majority of these harmful emissions (83%) are from the production of the food itself, and primarily that for red meat and dairy. While the exact reduction is difficult to discover, know that reducing your red meat and dairy intake can reduce your carbon footprint immensely, and for the most part, more than any other decision you can make.
