Positive Future Impact of In Vitro Meat Environmental Cleanup: Say goodbye to global warming! There are 1.5 billion animals that are used for meat alive in the world right now, and they use up a lot of resources and create a lot of wastes. In Vitro meat will reduce greenhouse gas emissions of the meat industry by 80% . It takes 10 liters of gas to produce 1 pound of beef!. 80% of deforestation of the Amazon forest is to make room for livestock farms and feeding ground. Greenhouse gas emissions from livestock: 68% of ammonia emissions 65% of nitrous oxide 37% of methane 9% of carbon dioxide. Switching from farmed meat to in vitro meat will reduce worldwide CO 2 emissions by 37 billion tones. 51% of total worldwide greenhouse gas emissions! If all of meat production shifts to in vitro production, the world’s greenhouse gas emissions will reduce by 40%. This is more than transportation and industry emissions combined! Efficiency and low cost: say goodbye to world hunger! -
