Climate experts: Eat less meat

Scientists call for reduced meat and dairy consumption to tackle global warming.

    With just days to go before the climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, the meat industry is being targeted by environmentalists.

    The UN's top climate scientist says a reduction in meat consumption would help combat global warming.

    It's claimed that the farming of meat contributes to 18 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions, more than transportation.

    Nicole Itano reports from Greece, where eating less meat is part of a traditional Mediterranean diet.
