NASA has acknowledged that the temperature rose to +0.8°C since 1880. The temperatures are expected to rise at +5°C, in 30 years.
The Flexitarian Diet, created by scientists, is expected to reduce our consumption which produced the most carbonate dioxides in the air.

What is the Flexitarian diet?
The concept is to cut meat and to eat more vegetables. It is the most intelligent way to save the planet and can be adapted to each part of the world. America and Europe would have to eat less meat. Asia less fish and Africa to reduce starchy vegetables.
It would be the first time, humanity thinks and adapts its diet, to feed 10 billion people by 2050.
Should we cut meat and fish?
Once a week a burger, and once a month a big piece of red meat (steak). The goal is to reduce to two thirds, meat in the European Union and in America. Two times a week, chicken or fish would be still possible.
In fact, it is a normal diet, and would just ask fellow Americans and Europeans to have a normal consumption. Read this article from the BBC.
In Asia, fish would have to be reduced also to two thirds.
Nuts for proteins are preconized. Nuts are also the best source of trace elements like iron, magnesium, and vitamins.
What about the vegetables?
Buying vegetables from farms locally and also available at the actual season are preconized, to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions.
Regarding nutrition, prefer dark color vegetables like green dark or orange veggies and avoid white salads that are empty from nutrients. Read this article from The Guardian.
Starchy vegetables like potatoes in Africa would have to be avoided as well.
One of the direct effects will be to stop extensive farming and promote local and bioproducts from your town or region.
