WIRE
Study: plant-based
could yield carbon
reductions, but
also job losses
More consumers buying
plant-based alternatives
instead of beef could
reduce carbon dioxide
emissions, but it also
could lead to job losses
in agriculture, according
to a study appearing
in the August issue of
Lancet Planetary Health.
Researchers simulated
three scenarios in which
US consumers replace
beef demand with
plant-based alternatives
at three different levels:
10%, 30% and 60%. The
increase in purchases of
meat protein alternatives
could reduce the
agricultural carbon
footprint between 2.5%
and 13.5%.
Forecasts for a
reduction in greenhouse
gas emissions were
7% for plant-based
protein alternatives
replacing 10% of beef
demand, 20.9% for a 30%
replacement and 41.4%
for a 60% replacement.
The number of
cows needed for beef
production could
decrease by 2 million to
12 million. The cattle and
beef processing sectors
could decrease between
7% and 45%.
In the live cattle sector,
employment forecasts
were a 7.6% decrease
for plant-protein
alternatives replacing
10% of beef demand,
a 22.5% decrease for a
30% replacement and
a 44.1% decrease for a
60% replacement. The
percentages for beef
processing were an 8.1%
decrease for 10%, a 24%
decrease for 30% and a
47.1% decrease for 60%.
A switch to plantbased
protein alternatives
from beef in the United
States could increase
beef exports to a range
of 14% to 37% of the total
beef category, which
compares to the current
12%. New demand for
crops could increase
acreage for certain crops
such as pulses that would
be used in plant-based
alternatives.
The study also
involved researchers
from Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore.
The Stavros Niarchos
Foundation, the Bill
& Melinda Gates
Foundation, Johns
Hopkins University,
the Commonwealth
Scientific and Industrial
Research Organisation,
Cornell University, and
Victoria University all
funded the study.
USDA stresses
climate change in
farm programs
The US Department of
Agriculture will continue
to push climate change
as a policy issue in farm
and export programs,
Department officials said
in comments at the 37th
International Sweetener
Symposium held Aug. 1
in Vail.
America's farmers have
Switching from beef
to plant-based could
cost US jobs, according
to a new study.

real hero in our ability to
address climate change "
through improvements

climate-smart practices,
but a successful climate
program " has to work for
agriculture, " said Robert
Bonnie, undersecretary
for farm production and
conservation for the
USDA, as he outlined
the USDA's approach
to addressing climate
change through building
broad, collaborative
partnerships across
agriculture.
Initiatives to
reduce greenhouse
gas emissions must
recognize the critical role
American farmers play
in producing a global
supply of food and fiber,
he said.
Bonnie emphasized
the importance of
crop insurance as a
risk management tool,
saying, " crop insurance
is critically important
for so many folks in
agriculture. " He noted
that there are ways to
increase crop insurance
accessibility while
improving the products
available to farmers.
Daniel Whitley,
administrator of
the USDA's Foreign
Agricultural Service,
said climate change is
included in all USDA
negotiations concerning
foreign trade, while also
guarding against other
countries using climate
change disguised as a
trade barrier.
Whitley noted
that while the Biden
administration hasn't
negotiated new free
trade agreements, it
has been successful
in negotiating several
targeted agreements,
such as beef exports to
Japan and potato exports
to Mexico.
Southeast Asia and
the Middle East and
Africa are key regions
the United States will
target to increase trade,
Whitley said.
