Download the document.

Methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas that is 25-28 times stronger than carbon dioxide (CO2) — the primary greenhouse gas driving climate change in California — but how it influences actual warming is much different, according to a white paper released today by UC Davis professors Frank Mitloehner, Ph.D., and Ermias Kebreab, Ph.D., along with Michael Boccadoro, executive director of Dairy Cares. The publication, Methane, Cows, and Climate Change: California’s Dairy’s Pathway to Climate Neutrality, examines recent literature from leading climate scientists and its implications for the California dairy sector.
