How Agriculture Can Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

The consumption of meat and dairy accounts for around 15% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock production is the largest source of global methane and nitrous oxide emissions, two particularly potent greenhouse gases.

A March study by scientists in New Zealand found that agriculture is the primary cause of the recent rise in global methane emissions. The biggest source of methane is enteric fermentation—crudely put, animal belching and flatulence. Another new study released this month by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and University of Colorado found that, while methane from fossil fuel development is much larger than previously believed, biological…

 How Agriculture Can Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Agriculture is the second largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions after energy production, but gets far less attention than fossil fuels as a potential way to mitigate the threat of climate change.

Greenhouse Gas Management Institute

Our Mission - “To address climate change by building and supporting a global community of experts with the highest standards of professional practice in measuring, accounting, auditing and managing greenhouse gas emissions; meeting the needs of governments, corporations and organizations large and small.”

All about greenhouse gas science.

Many people don’t realize that as much as 25% of per cent of the carbon dioxide emissions are naturally absorbed by the ocean and another 25% of the carbon dioxide emissions are absorbed by our biosphere, such as trees, plants, soil, etc. This leaves about 50% of the carbon dioxide emissions that are not absorbed and remaining in our atmosphere.

Global Monitoring Laboratory

The Global Monitoring Laboratory (GML) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration conducts research that addresses three major challenges: greenhouse gas and carbon cycle feedbacks, changes in clouds, aerosols, and surface radiation, and recovery of stratospheric ozone.
