New study highlights the outsized impact of swapping out a third of all meat with plant-based alternatives.
Commercial fishing threatens marine life — and it seems orcas are trying to do something about it.
According to a 20-year study in Nature, reefs closer to pollution fared worse in recovering from damage caused by climate change.
One ‘solution’ employed for overheated animals on factory farms? Mass suffocation.
Heard of plant-based defaults? It’s a simple idea that could be a major help in the fight against climate change.
A new study says lab grown meat is worse for the planet than beef, but what do the numbers actually say?
A new study by Faunalytics and Sentient Media shows that animal agriculture is systematically underreported in climate media coverage.
We’ve compiled some of our most frequently used research and analysis in this food-climate reporting toolkit.
New research suggests rewilding is more effective than tree-planting, and when it comes to which land to rewild, the answer is also clear: farms.
Two new biodiversity studies find a link between what we eat and the shrinking number of wild plant and animal species left on the planet.
A trio of new reports — including the IPCC’s latest — makes clear that food system reform is a crucial part of climate action.
A new investigation has revealed millions in industry funding to a UC Davis professor who downplays factory farming’s role in the climate crisis.
Beef production is a leading driver of climate emissions but in Brazil, a collaborative carbon sink project has returned a degraded cattle ranch to carbon-rich forest.
A new report shows countries in the region must reduce their beef consumption in order to meet climate targets.
New research shows Canadians can reach their climate goals by reducing meat and dairy consumption.
The avian influenza is a growing source of concern for Latin American researchers, since its high pathogenicity represents a risk of infection for migratory shorebirds.
University of Oxford researchers examined 57,000 foods and deemed plant-based options better for the environment than meat.
A new study finds that as climate change pushes wildlife into closer contact with humans, zoonotic diseases will be able to spread more easily.
A new study concludes that animal welfare and health considerations both influenced consumer decisions. Surprisingly, the environment did not.
Researcher Deborah Giles is on the frontlines of efforts to understand—and help protect—critically endangered Southern Residents.
The latest IPCC report states in its strongest terms yet the need for action to reduce emissions, and one of the key strategies it outlines for policymakers is agroecology.
The landmark report states that we can halve emissions by the year 2030, but to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we must act immediately.
A new study found shark DNA in about one-third of the cat and dog food samples sequenced. Consumers likely had no idea what they were buying.

The number of hogs slaughtered dropped in the first few months of the pandemic before recovering to match—and in some cases exceed—2019 levels.
Livestock is a major contributor to climate change. But in the scientific community, there’s a surprising lack of consensus around just how much livestock production is adding to the problem. Environmental researcher Nicholas Carter makes the case for a new approach.
Successful climate mitigation starts with you and me eating less meat and consuming fewer fossil fuels. In other words, do less harm to animals and you will do less harm to the environment. EAT-Lancet is the first report of its kind to say that.

With a growing public demand, two Harvard researchers attempt to answer that question. Over the…
