O Globo: With cattle burps as the main source of methane, cattle-ranching is key for Brazil to reduce emissions
An article published by O Globo newspaper on Wednesday (3/11), discusses the obstacles that Brazil will have to face to meet the global target of reducing 30% of methane emissions and what governmental and behavioural changes are needed to honour the commitment.
"If there is one country that has the potential to cut methane emissions it is Brazil. Our emissions do not come from burning fossil fuels, but rather from livestock production,” stated Marina Piatto, Imaflora's executive director. "We have technologies in the agricultural sector in Brazil, but they need to be available not only to a few. We need to have an all-encompassing low-carbon agriculture plan," she added.
