Studies have shown that if 70% of people adopted a vegan diet and 63% adopted a vegetarian diet (includes cheese, milk, and eggs) the combined impact on climate change would be huge! There would be a 70% reduction in emissions. That means if we take the low end of the current emissions above at 15% it would be reduced to 3.75%.
