Beef Producers Look to Reduce Their Industry’s Global Impact on Climate

Greenhouse gas emissions associated with beef production are higher than electricity, coal and other industries.

For food production, beef is off the chart for climate impact. They regurgitate methane, making them the worst offenders of emitting methane per dollar of output of any industry, according to a new report by Harvest Public Media.

These insights are leading beef producers to closely study how their industry impacts the climate and where changes can be made. Harvest Public Media looks at the future of meat production for those who make meat and those who eat meat, a project with which Rocky Mountain PBS I-News collaborated.
