A new study by scientists has found that farming harms wilflife and climate change, more than anything else does.
Including Co2 gases
This researching into Climate Change by scientists has shown that agriculture is more damaging to wild animals, than the traditional explanations for climate Change.
The research was published in a journal, by Nature. The found that only 19% of species, both animal and planet species were threatened by Climate Change.
However, they also founding something very interesting. They found that more animal and plant species were threatened by farming.
They found that three-quarters of animal and plant species were threatened by agriculture.
What is even more surprising is the fact that the agricultural affect on wild species is well known. And not a secret. it has been known for years.
The negative impact that agriculture is having on wild animals, wild plants, and habitats across the world is documented in the documentary 'Cowspiracy: A Sustainable Secret'.
The documentary Cowspiracy does not only focus on how farming is having a negative impact on wildlife. It also states that the most well-known, and influential green charities are turning a blind eye to it.
It asks if farming is more damaging to the planet, and wildlife, then why are these charities not focusing on farming, rather than focusing on emissions.
Farming does not only harm wildlife with the emissions that it produces. It also harms wildlife because large areas of nature are eroded to clear area for land.
If anything, farming's harm on wildlife should be a key focus for environmentalists, instead of green house emissions. We can find a way around emissions, by using technology. However, once land is cleared, and species become extinct, there is no way of erasing that.
