Tackling the Factory Farming Problem
Patrick O. Brown, a Stanford University biochemist, says animal
farming is an ecological disaster given that it contributes to 9% of
human-caused carbon dioxide emissions, 37% of human-caused methane
(most of it emanating from the animals' digestive systems) and 65%
of human-caused nitrous oxide, according to the Food & Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations. Brown is planning to take 18
months off to work out economic models with colleagues; illustrating
ways that animal farming is likely to become onerously expensive.

You'd better seriously start investing and trying to find
alternatives in order to stay alive."

he doesn’t stop there. Brown is putting his time and resources into
helping put an end to factory farming. This is good news for God’s
