AGRIC Emissions: From 1990 to 2010, global agricultural emissions increased 8 percent. They are projected to increase 15 percent above 2010 levels by 2030, when they will amount to nearly 7 billion tonnes per year.
13
Land use change and forestry (LUCF) caused 4 percent of global emissions in 2010 and 14 percent of the aggregate, global emissions from 1990 to 2011. Most of these LUCF emissions are intimately connected to agriculture, as many resulted from deforestation caused by expansion of farms into tropical forests. In contrast, forest stocks are increasing in many non-tropical regions (e.g., North America and China), due largely to forest regrowth on former farmland.

New research published by Oxfam showed that the richest 1% of the world’s population produce 175 times as much CO2 per person as the bottom 10%.
32
33
The richest 10th of the world’s population produce half the CO2 emissions, while the poorest half generates just 10% of them, the report adds.
34
35
The report adds to the pressure on rich countries to provide climate finance to the developing world whose citizens are often most at risk from climate change.
36
37
Rich, high emitters should be held accountable for their emissions, no matter where they live, Oxfam's climate policy head Tim Gore said.

39
But it's easy to forget that rapidly developing economies are also home to the majority of the world's very poorest people and while they have to do their fair share, it is rich countries that should still lead the way, he said in a statement.

The world currently emits the equivalent of 49 gigatons of carbon annually, a level that must fall by more than half (to 23 gigatons) if global temperature rise is to be curbed at two degrees Celsius by 2050. Yet, “if meat and dairy consumption continues to rise at current rates, the agricultural sector alone will soak up 20 gigatons of the yearly limit in 2050,”

Biodiversity
In absolute terms, the planet has lost 52% of its biodiversity since 1970 according to a 2014 study by the World Wildlife Fund. The Living Planet Report 2014 claims that "the number of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish across the globe is, on average, about half the size it was 40 years ago". Of that number, 39% accounts for the terrestrial wildlife gone, 39% for the marine wildlife gone, and 76% for the freshwater wildlife gone. Biodiversity took the biggest hit in Latin America, plummeting 83 percent. High-income countries showed a 10% increase in biodiversity, which was canceled out by a loss in low-income countries. This is despite the fact that high-income countries use five times the ecological resources of low-income countries, which was explained as a result of process whereby wealthy nations are outsourcing resource depletion to poorer nations, which are suffering the greatest ecosystem losses.[143]

"Now and then, we get exercised about the social justice problem—some more so than others. But as serious as that problem is, there is a larger problem: we are all dependent on economic growth. A cap on carbon seems essential if we are to stop the abusive practices associated with relentless economic growth. It seems easier to oppose social justice than to acknowledge limits, and here, once again, we encounter the 3.4-billion-year-old imperative. I suspect that fully living within our finite ecosphere into the foreseeable future is or will be the most formidable challenge our species ever has or will ever face. Social justice is certainly important, but it is not enough." -Wes Jackson

The world needs a paradigm shift in agricultural development: from a “green revolution” to an “ecological intensification” approach.
