Is Agriculture or Energy a bigger problem for climate change?

    Energy- the main cause of climate change is greenhouse gas emissions which largely come from coal powered plants. Agricultural pollution is mainly seen as runoff into water. Streams then carry the chemicals to the ocean which create the dead zones you hear about.
