    The FAO estimates that cow manure and flatulence generate 30% to 40% of total methane emissions from human-influenced activities. As demand for meat grows, so does the need for pasture and cropland, making deforestation an additional concern. Extensive grazing also takes a toll on arable land. The livestock sector accounts for 8% of human water.

    A key issue is efficient use of water in the crop production process itself. Water use efficiency is the outcome of different and competing processes. Water use efficiency on rain-fed smallholder farms is typically only 3, kg/ha of biomass in cereal crops (of which, only 1, kg are grain) for mm of Smallholder Land and Water Management   “University of Washington climate scientist Mark Albright was dismissed from his position as associate state climatologist, just weeks after exposing false claims of shrinking glaciers in the Cascade Mountains.

    In many areas, this water use is unsustainable; water supplies are also under pressure from other users and are being affected by climate change. Much effort is being made to reduce water use by crops and produce ‘more crop per drop’. This is one of the most important inputs essential for the production of crop production. Figure 9. Cumulative fossil-fuel production with normal fits for hydrocarbons (ultimate Tboe, 10% , 90% ) and coal (ultimate Tboe, 10% , 90% ). Now we are in a position to see what some consequences for climate are. Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly °C higher in the Nineties than in , and it is estimated that they will increase by C every decade over the coming century.
