In just over a decade, if the human population does not change its ways, the effects of climate change will become irreversible. Reports say the world’s coral reefs will die off as soon as 2040. This is within many of the current population’s lifetime.

Climate change has been an increasingly prominent issue within the past decade. As more research shows the negative effects of so many everyday activities and products that are commonly used by the public, drastic efforts needs to be taken in order to keep the effects of climate change at bay.

“Taken as a whole, the range of published evidence indicates that the net damage costs of climate change are likely to be significant and to increase over time,” NASA said.

Activities such as driving, deforestation, and burning fossil fuels are one of the leading man-made causes for global warming. The meat industry also plays an enormous cause of climate change.

“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has shown that animal agriculture is globally the single largest source of methane emissions and that, pound for pound, methane is more than 25 times as effective as carbon dioxide at trapping heat in our atmosphere,” People for The Ethical Treatment Of Animals said.

The meat, dairy, and egg industry account for more than 65% of the greenhouse gas known as nitrous oxide. Reducing animal consumption is one of the single most effective ways to reduce the effects of climate change, according to scientific analysis.
