Virginia Tech researchers find that removal of dairy cows would have minimal impact on greenhouse emissions

We only start to understand the gargantuan volumes of methane that are being released naturally into the atmosphere every day. Methane is a gas that is being produced in vast quantities abiotically between the Earth’s crust and mantle. It rises to the surface and is released into the atmosphere. As its lighter than air it rises and dissipates and the atmosphere oxidizes it quickly which is why we don’t find a lot of it in the air. Actually. methane concentrations are microscopic. The tiny contribution that animals make is irrelevant to any climate in the equally irrelevant methane picture.
