Emission equivalents and emission intensities of livestock products.

(A) Total annualized CO2 equivalents through 2100, aCO2eq2100, for all tracked animal products, and Emission Intensities based on aCO2eq2100 on a per unit production (B) or per unit protein (C) basis. For (B) and (C) we also convert the values to driving equivalents using a value of 0.254 kg CO2eq per km driven of an internal combustion engine fueled sedan in the United States from life cycle analyses described in [36].
