This number includes food production and the land-use changes associated with farming, such as clearing vegetation and plowing.
According to WRE, agriculture alone could produce enough emissions to surpass 1.5°C of global warming. To slow global warming and reduce the effect of climate change, The United Nations said we need to make changes in agriculture production. These changes could result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through carbon sequestration.
