Rethinking Methane:
The Path to Climate Neutrality.

Animal agriculture is often shouldered with a large part of the blame when it comes to climate change, but that’s because we haven’t been looking at all greenhouse gases correctly. By rethinking methane, we can show how animal agriculture is on the path to climate neutrality, which will allow the global community to find meaningful solutions to climate change.

Dr. Frank Mitloehner is the director of the CLEAR Center (Clarity and Leadership for Environmental Awareness and Research at UC Davis). He is also a professor and air quality specialist in cooperative extension in the Department of Animal Science at the University of California, Davis. As such, he shares his knowledge and research, both domestically and abroad, with students, scientists, farmers and ranchers, policy makers, and the public at large.

The CLEAR Center brings clarity to the intersection of animal agriculture and the environment, helping our global community understand the environmental and human health impacts of livestock, so we can make informed decisions about the foods we eat and while reducing environmental impacts.

Frank was recruited by UC Davis in 2002, to fill its first-ever position focusing on the relationship between livestock and air quality.
