Humans are responsible for the carbon in the atmosphere but not by the way politicians and most people are lead to believe and think. They used to think the world was flat and some still do.
Deforestation and desertification are the trouble, Yes the worlds deserts are growing at an alarming rate.
Its not the animals they have been there for years in large herds like the American buffalo and thrived.
Then what is the problem well its small herds in small paddocks and the ground does not recover.
More carbon is released to the atmosphere every year by this means than any other.
Clear felling trees is a crime against humanity so is small paddocks and large herds in these paddocks.
I see where herds of sheep are in large paddocks feeding off the stubble after harvest with no shade.
If I were to leave my dog in the back yard with out shelter I would be fined and may be even locked up. The question is why is it different for sheep. To debunk popular belief sheep do not have a brain and they are intelligent. If they get out of a paddock they don't go back and tell the others they go in and out of the paddock for days even weeks. They know if they all go out then the hole in the fence will be fixed and none of them will get the good grass.
So lets have some serious discussions on carbon and carbon taxes and not let the politicians get away with another tax to pay more increases in government regulations and bureaucracy.
