Mis­sion pos­si­ble

In a bid to fight the grow­ing im­pact our di­ets have on the en­vi­ron­ment, an Amer­i­can com­pany called Im­pos­si­ble Foods has suc­cess­fully cre­ated a meat-free burger patty that looks, smells, tastes and cooks like beef. A study this year by the Ox­ford Martin School at Ox­ford Univer­sity pre­dicted that emis­sions caused by food pro­duc­tion and other agri­cul­ture would within 30 years con­sume ap­prox­i­mately half the world’s car­bon bud­get. By sim­ply re­duc­ing our meat con­sump­tion to the lev­els rec­om­mended by health guide­lines, we could re­duce this im­pact by up to a third. For all the meat lovers among us, foods like the ‘Im­pos­si­ble burger’ will make this eas­ier.
