Statement from Carnegie Mellon

While the recent story on food choices has been portrayed with less precision by some outlets, Carnegie Mellon and Paul Fischbeck, the senior researcher on this project, stand by the research published in Environment Systems and Decisions and how the research was described in the university’s press release. The purpose of the press release was to note the difference in greenhouse gas emissions between lettuce and bacon to highlight the complicated relationship that exists between food and the environment.
