    They are much more potent than other greenhouse gases, meaning they absorb more energy (heat) per ton and have a greater effect on global warming and all the terrible things that come with that.

    Always amazed by the effect limiting meat products have! I'm definitely going to continue to focus on that, as well as continuing learning how to ride a bike so I can add that to my non-car transportation alongside walking.
