Type your question here…Hi Fossil fuels emit new carbon and methane into the earths atmosphere. All agriculture simply recycles the carbon that is in the atmosphere. The methane component has a net life of 8.4 years, should concentrate then on fossill

Agricultural emissions, CH4 and NO2 will arrive at a constant balance of emission and breakdown whereas fossill fuel burning is virtually unlimited in introducing new carbon. Surely to turn around new carbon, if we are serious about increasing carbon in the atmosphere, the emphasis should be on new carbon and not confuse the argument by including agriculture which recycles carbon already present.
