What does farming have to do with climate change?

More than you may realize. How the food we eat is grown or raised makes a huge difference to the amount of greenhouse gases produced. In addition to the use of fossil fuels to power farm machinery and provide the feedstock for farm chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, the numbers of animals raised, and the type of production system used also affects the amount of damaging CO2, nitrous oxide and methane formed as a result of meat and livestock production.
