Max Armstrong shares insight into livestock production and misconceptions regarding greenhouse gas emissions

Max Armstrong offers a look at how popular groups are blaming livestock for greenhouse gases even though ag contributes just 9% and animal agriculture just 4%. But actors and politicians are focusing on livestock rather than the causes of the other 78%. Max shares insight on how methane fits into a natural carbon cycle; and there's insight into what it may mean to eliminate animal ag.
