Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Contribute to Global Warming
Greenhouse Gasses (GHG) released to the atmosphere have raised the global temperature.
Since industrialization in 1880s, the global temperature has risen by 0.83˚C to 1.2˚C in over 100 years until 2018.
Agriculture accounts for 24% of Global GHG emission, with precisely 10% from the cattle sector.
Methane, a greenhouse gas that is known to trap 28 times more heat than carbon dioxide, is abundant in the atmosphere.
The amount of methane generated in the livestock sector accounts for 35% of total methane emissions.
Effective and practical solutions to reduce GHG emission are urgently needed to prevent global warming. The initiative, promoted globally now, is to practice carbon neutrality by 2050.
