+ - Livestock's Contribution to Global Warming

Submitted by Aqua_boy17
Aqua_boy17 (962670) writes "The Christian Science Monitor is reporting that people who eat meat are responsible for about 1.5 tons more of carbon dioxide being put in to the atmosphere each year than their vegan counterparts. The article cites a recently released report from the UN's Food and Agriculture Orginization stating that livestock raised for human consumption is now responsible for as much as 18% of total greenhouse gases emitted annually. While livestock animals are responsible for about 9% of total Carbon Dioxide release, they're also blamed for nearly 40% of the total methane and 65% of the total amount of Nitrous Oxide released into the environment. When added together the amount of total greenhouse gas emissions produced as a byproduct of raising livestock is already greater than all current modes of transportation combined, and is expected to rise in the future."
