For 2016, Chomping Climate Change wishes everyone the best New Year ever (why not aim high)!

We appreciate the tons of attention that people have focused on our work in 2015, and we promise to work even harder in 2016 on our mission of inspiring people to learn about and act on the case for addressing climate change before it’s too late.

Highlights of 2015 for Chomping Climate Change are covered in detail on our Facebook page, and they include:

Our analysis was disseminated across the world, in various summaries of our assessment that the lifecycle and supply chain of livestock and their byproducts are responsible for at least 51% of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions – including in posters created by activists all over the world for use in climate change rallies, as can be seen in the sample of photos at the top and bottom of this page.

Our analysis was notably included in a movie co-produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, in a new perspective published by Pulitzer Prize-winner Chris Hedges, in support from Paul McCartney, in a climate change quiz published by the World Wildlife Fund, in news regarding Arnold Schwarznegger, and in a media package sent to Al Gore by PETA.

A new book was published that included a chapter by Robert Goodland, co-founder of Chomping Climate Change, entitledA Fresh Look at Livestock Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Mitigation” (email us for a copy at chompingclimatechange@outlook.com).

We launched our new FACTS and No More Bull projects; see our website for details.

“Likes” of our Facebook page rose from fewer than 10,000 to almost 25,000.

We published 11 blog postings on our website during the year, covering such key topics as the UN climate summit in Paris; a term that we coined,Peak Livestock”; recommendations for new U.S. government dietary guidelines; and much more.

At the bottom of our 2015 blog postings, a total of more than 15,000 shares are recorded. The most-shared posting was entitled “How Researchers Cooked Data to Hate on Plants”, a critique of a study undertaken at Carnegie Mellon University.  For example, our posting was reprinted by Planet Save and tweeted about by the Sierra Club’s editor Paul Raber.

We kicked off the year with a newly-designed version of our website; we hope that you’ll find it to be beneficial, at http://www.chompingclimatechange.org.
