ODPG WEBINAR: Methane. Friend or Foe?

This year we’ll be continuing our regular webinars on all sorts of farming topics as part of a programme provided to our members.

HOSTRobin Grieve/Owen Jennings and Janette Perrett
DATEThursday 15 July
TIME7.30 – approx. 8.30pm
Online via Zoom

The following is a quote from the New Zealand Pastoral Farming Climate Research site:

“No cow, sheep, pig or goat has ever managed to create carbon from nothing. They produce products by using carbon taken out of the air which is then stored away in the bones of growing children, in carpets, furniture and clothing. This means greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere cannot increase due to the presence of ruminants, they can only decrease if anything. The agricultural emissions that they claim make up 48.5% of NZ’s greenhouse gas emissions do not exist. They then confuse these theoretical emissions with real carbon emissions such as those from oil and gas and they lump them altogether and the result is a farce.”

Robin Grieve needs all the credit for the enormous amount of data he has gathered confirming livestock emissions of methane are not causing global warming. He is now chair of the newly formed group FARM (Facts about Ruminant Methane) who along with Owen Jennings are sharing facts with farmers and others around the country, getting the right information out there.

I will be hosting either Owen Jennings or Robin Grieve on our next webinar when we will take a deeper look into how the evidence stacks up.

Thursday 15th July @ 7.30pm is the date and time to circle on your calendar. I hope you can all join me and show your support.
