Livestock do NOT add to atmospheric carbon Because They’re part of the natural carbon cycle.
The eat plants which extract CO2 from the air, and they return CO2 into the atmosphere (just as we humans do on each exhalation), which in turn feeds plants. There can be the plants they consume ALWAYS extract carbon dioxide from the air, and no net increase in carbon from numerous livestock since livestock ALWAYS consume plants!
This carbon cycle is essential to life on earth.
In contrast, burning fossil fuels takes carbon that was locked up in fossils (not in the atmosphere) and releases it into the atmosphere.
The idea that livestock are the drivers of changes in the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere is simply bullshit.
