Animal agriculture is often shouldered with a large part of the blame when it comes to climate change, but that’s because we haven’t been looking at all greenhouse gases correctly. While methane is a potent climate pollutant that we can and need to reduce, it warms our atmosphere differently than other gases because of its short lifespan. By rethinking methane, we can see that animal agriculture can be on the path to climate neutrality with scalable solutions and give the global community tools to fight global climate change.
As a result of this presentation, the attendee will:
1. Identify different greenhouse gases and their impact on the environment.
2. Discuss agriculture’s impact on climate change.
3. Identify scalable solutions utilized in animal agriculture to fight global climate change.
