The IPCC may have got it wrong in es­ti­mat­ing African live­stock emis­sions

Down to Earth - - CLIMATE CHANGE -


METHOD­OL­OGY: IPCC used stud­ies car­ried out in Europe and North Amer­ica to ar­rive at its es­ti­mates though cli­matic con­di­tions, di­ets and breeds in Africa are dif­fer­ent

FIND­INGS: As com­pared to IPCC's find­ings, the ILRI study found that fae­cal meth­ane emis­sions were two times lower, fae­cal nitrous ox­ide (NO ) were 10-20 times 2 lower and urine NO were two 2 times lower
