Right. I burn wood. Cut from my own woods...... the volume of trees consumes more carbon than released.

Grazing animals are a better use of land than when veggies are grown: till, lay down ploy tubing for irrigation, lay down plastic, set in plants and picking which requires a pass of a gas guzzling ( or diesel) tractor or planter or truck for each process........

Someone needs to find the fuel usage of big farming.

Cattle in feedlot have not spent whole life in that area of management. Usually cattle are raised on grass, perhaps supplemented with grains, then finished on hay and a higher percentage of grains.

We tend to focus on huge operations and forget many animals are raised by small operations.

Perhaps large greenhouse production is worth examining for fuel emissions as it maybe a smaller footprint than cereal production.
