In fact, we might be relying on it a little too much: humans currently use about 70% of the planet’s land, and a quarter of it is used to raise livestock for food. 

So it makes sense that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations body for assessing climate-change research, released a new report with a key change that individuals can make to help save the planet: Stop eating so much meat.
