Main Agricultural Cause of Global Warming

  • Nearly 1/5 of all global warming causing emissions come from animal agriculture, more than the cumulative impact of all the transportation in the world.
  • This effect occurs because animal wastes and digestion produces methane and nitrous oxide gases, which have 23 and 246 times the heat trapping of carbon dioxide.
  • The livestock industry is also the leading cause of deforestation of the rainforest. 70% of the former Amazon Rainforest is currently devoted to animal agriculture. Because trees and other plants remove greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere, deforestation accelerates the pace of global warming.
