Myth: Animal agriculture is responsible for 51 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. 

Fact: According to the 2015 EPA report, agriculture (crop and livestock) accounts for only nine percent of total greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, making it impossible for animal agriculture to account for 51 percent of total emissions. On a global level, agriculture, forestry and land use accounts for a total of 24 percent, still proving that animal agriculture is not responsible for more than half of GHG emissions. http://bit.ly/2dvIhRK
