This week’s featured video was published by Clarity and Leadership for Environmental Awareness and Research Center (CLEAR) at the University of California Davis to discuss an often misunderstood topic of how methane produced by ruminant animals (cattle, sheep, goats, buffalo, etc.) effects global climate change.  Methane is a strong “greenhouse gas”, but it is degraded in the atmosphere in a relatively short time, as compared to carbon dioxide (CO2) produced from fossil fuels that builds up for years and years.  So, if scientists can develop production techniques to reduce annual methane production from cattle, they could actually be part of the solution to reduce global warming.  Watch the video to get a an overview of the research on methane being conducted by the Clear Center at UC Davis.
