      Food drives a third of global emissions: report

      A third of all the world's man-made greenhouse gas emissions are linked to food, according to new global research that tracked produce from field to fork to landfill. Land clearing and deforestation, fertiliser use, livestock and waste all contribute to the emissions from the system to feed Earth's 7.7 billion people.
