A study by researchers at the University of Oxford finds that Paris climate agreement goals will be nearly impossible to reach without dramatic reductions in food-related emissions.

The aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius—ideally 1.5 degrees—compared to pre-industrial levels.

The recent study concludes that if all non-food-related emissions were immediately halted from now to 2100, food industry emissions alone would push the world past the 1.5 degrees Celsius goal between 2051 and 2063.

Even in the absence of fossil fuels, emissions from food production could still bring the world close to the accord’s 2 degrees limit by 2100.
