    I'd say agriculture is very much one of the leading problems of climate change, I can't believe how it gets ignored so readily. Everybody is all about the fossil fuels as a problem, while fossil fuels are an issue, the evidence for agriculture being a serious problem is readily brushed under the carpet or not acknowledged at all due to the clout the food industry has, because lets face it, they have us over a barrel, we have to eat... and so do cows, Given the land that is razed to graze cows / grow feed for cows. Cows eat up to 5% of their body weight, a day. That food has to come from somewhere. Then there is a growing human population...

It will be included. I honestly have to do a bit more reading on its involvement in any direct causation. With livestock it is pretty straightforward.

Most of the studies I can think about off hand have covered more about the difficulty of agriculture as the climate changes. I will need to look at it more closely in some respects. I know in terms of deforestation it has impacts on the carbon cycle in the big way.

Cows do eat alot and are not a very efficient food source. They also produce a fair bit of methane, adding to the problem directly as well.
