Australians should replace eating beef and lamb with kangaroo meat in order to fight climate change. ++ Marsupials, such as Kangaroos, produce low-emission waste and have less biophysical impact on water scarcity. ++ Kangaroo had been the main source of meat for most Australians for 60,000 years and could make a come back. ++ The switch should be relatively easy, both on farms and in homes, but the proposed emissions trading scheme (ETS) may create difficulties. ++ Agriculture should be included in an ETS as soon as possible.
