It’s no secret that global temperatures are rising and the ocean is changing with every degree.
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.
