Methane’s contribution to agricultural emissions and climate change

Collection: DATAM : Data/Modelling platform of resource economics 

Description

Owing to its short atmospheric life, methane’s contribution to agricultural emissions and climate change may vary substantially depending on the temporal scale considered. Based on projections from three agricultural economic models, this study reveals how different appreciations of methane’s global warming potential may affect the cost-effectiveness of carbon pricing and low-meat diets.
