Climate Science

Climate change today is happening because human activities are sending greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere, disrupting a delicate balance that has supported life on earth for millions of years.

Animal agriculture in the U.S. accounts for as much as 51% of all greenhouse gases and is the leading cause of climate change. Animal agriculture on any scale cannot adequately sequester in the soil biology the Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), and Nitrous Oxide (N2O) it produces. Methane is 25-100 times more destructive than CO2 on a 20 year timeframe. Nitrous oxide is 300 times more destructive to the atmosphere than CO2. The time taken for methane released into the atmosphere to reduce by approximately two-thirds is twelve years. Carbon dioxide takes 100 years or more to clear. Methane has increased in the atmosphere from 1,700 to 1,850 nanomoles since measurements were first taken in the 1980’s; that is 1,600 parts per billion (ppb) up to 1,800 ppb. Reducing animal ags’ greenhouse gas footprint is an urgent strategic step toward reversing climate change.
