Cows produce a lot of greenhouse gases. A small business in Switzerland produces a feed supplement which reduces the damaging emissions by ten percent per cow.
Swiss voters have rejected a plan to put Swiss court rulings ahead of international ones. However, they approved allowing insurers to spy on customers and against a ban on the dehorning of cows.
To dehorn or not to dehorn: That is the question being asked of Swiss voters in a referendum on bovine well-being. Dehorning advocates say not doing so could be both dangerous and detrimental to the animals.
Underwater shellfish farts produce 10 percent of greenhouse gases released in the Baltic Sea, a new study shows. This could be a concern as aquaculture - and the polluting practices that go along with it - expands.
We must wean ourselves off unsustainable economic growth if we are to cut greenhouse gas emissions and avoid catastrophic climate change, say some economists. But what are the alternatives to growth?
