Electric vehilcles are only about 20% more greenhouse gas efficient than gasoline vehicles and that benefit is only realized after 93,000 miles of driving. EV's are actually less efficient than gasoline for the first 62,000 miles. berc.berkeley.edu/is-the-…
According to the National Geographic, even if all greenhouse gas emission stopped immediately, there is enough carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to keep the Earth warmer than usual for about another 100 years. livestrong.com/article/11…
If all Americans did not eat meat for one day a week, they would save 99.6 megatons of greenhouse gas emissions. This would be the equivalent of removing 46 million round trip flights between Los Angeles and New York, or taking 19.2 million cars off the road for a full year. huffingtonpost.com/mikko-…
If all people within the EU would halve their meat and dairy consumption, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture by 25 to 40 percent, and nitrogen emissions by 40 percent. reuters.com/article/2014/…
Researchers found that methane produced by sauropods (long neck dinosaurs) across the globe would have been about 520 million tons per year, a number on par with current greenhouse gas emissions. livescience.com/20125-din…
Kangaroos rarely burp due to a special bacteria in their gut. This bacteria is of interest to scientists as a means of reducing the greenhouse gas effect of cow burps. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kan…
Despite having diets similar to cattle, kangaroos release virtually no methane and scientists are interested in the possibility of transferring the bacteria responsible from kangaroos to cattle since the greenhouse gas effect of methane is 23 times that of carbon dioxide. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kan…
Deforestation and forest degradation account for 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions annually, more than the entire transportation sector. ucsusa.org/global_warming…
"Cleaner" natural gas is actually dirtier than coal because of methane leaks which is a greenhouse gas 80x more potent than CO2. yearsoflivingdangerously.…
The livestock sector accounts for about 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, more than all of transport taken together fao.org/docrep/010/a0701e…
The greenhouse gas emissions arising every year from the production and consumption of cheeseburgers is roughly the amount emitted by 13 million SUVs. There are currently 16 million SUV's on the road. openthefuture.com/cheeseb…

According to a 2005 report on world greenhouse gas emissions, transportation by air is responsible for 1.7% of all emissions, just above emissions from 'rice cultivation' at 1.5%. wri.org/publication/world…
Water vapor is a potent greenhouse gas along with other gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wat…
Deforestation accounts for 10% of greenhouse gas emissions. redd-monitor.org/2014/02/…
Even if emissions stopped increasing, greenhouse gas concentrations would continue to increase and surface air temperatures would continue to warm... for several hundred years epa.gov/climatechange/sci…
Burning (supposedly clean) natural gas obtained through fracking actually produces MORE greenhouse emissions than coal. eeb.cornell.edu/howarth/w…
Switching residential lighting from incandescent to LED could be the easiest (most economical) way to make an impact on the reduction of planetary greenhouse gas emissions and is more cost-effective than biofuel, hybrid/plugin cars, or recycling (pg 8 chart) [PDF] mckinsey.com/~/media/mcki…
There is a net energy imbalance for the earth. It is heating up at about 0.6 watts/mΒ². Increased CO2 and other greenhouse gas levels reflect more infra-red back to earth [see NASA diagram] en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ear…
If greenhouse gas emissions stopped now, Earth still would likely get warmer washington.edu/news/2011/…
When the Appalachian mountains formed from the volcanic eruptions 460 million years ago, it created greenhouse-gas levels 20 times higher than they are today. Then the basalt rock from the formed mountains sequestered so much CO2 from the atmosphere that it resulted in an ice age. news.sciencemag.org/scien…
Oil companies in North Dakota choose to burn natural gas discovered in oil wells vs harvesting it, releasing greenhouses gases equal to about 1 million cars in the atmosphere annually. eenews.net/stories/105998…
