It’s no secret that global temperatures are rising and the ocean is changing with every degree.
The planet is taking a beating from all the greenhouse gases we are pumping into the atmosphere. We know that cattle are a big contributor to these emissions.
Livestock methane emissions
As the human population increases and the demand for resources grows, cattle are being raised at increasingly higher rates. By weight, a cow produces 250L to 500L of methane per day. Factoring in the numbers at this scale, it’s really no surprise that livestock emits 10% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Excess nutrients from industry, agriculture, finfish aquaculture, and atmospheric carbon are causing ocean dead zones stressing the delicate biodiversity of our planet.
