Global emissions and land use footprints of animal agriculture.

Total CO2 equivalent emissions (A) assembled from species, product and country-specific production data from FAOSTAT for 2019 and species, product, region and greenhouse-gas specific emissions data from GLEAM [3], using CO2 equivalents of 34 for CH4 and 298 for N2O. Land use (B) assembled from species, product and country-specific production data from FAOSTAT for 2019 and species and product specific land use data from [12].
