Our foods carbon footprint

This really surprised me.

83% of our foods carbon footprint comes, according to a recent study, from it’s production. 11% from it’s transportation and 6% from storage, lighting of shops etc.

Our household food carbon foot print is twice that produced by driving.

So it’s all the faulty of fat people, that will let the smug fit people off the hook.
