Phaseout of animal agriculture reduces global warming impact of the atmosphere.

Effect of eliminating emissions linked to animal agriculture and of biomass recovery on land currently used in animal agriculture on Radiative Forcing (RF), a measure of the instantaneous warming potential of the atmosphere. RF values computed from atmospheric concentrations in by formula of [30, 32] as modified in MAGICC6 [29] with adjustment for gases other than CO2, CH4 and N2O as described in text.
