Lab-Grown Meat Could Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions By 96%

By Marissa Higgins

No matter what your dietary preference, pretty much everyone is in agreement that the rate at which we use livestock and cattle is hurting the environment. Not only does livestock require a great deal of land, but the maintenance of grooming animals for consumption also drains environmental resources. And a new report from the Adam Smith Institute suggests that a switch to lab-grown meat would not only drastically free up land, but also cut greenhouse gas emissions by up to 96 percent.

The report, which is aptly titled Don't Have A Cow, does come with caveats. First of all, it is specific to the United Kingdom. So while assumptions may work for the United States, it does not specifically take our data into account.
