Emissions of greenhouse gases, greenhouse gas precursors, and aerosols associated with human activities, including the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, land-use changes, livestock, fertilisation, etc. (IPCC)

Emissions from fossil fuel combustion and deforestation that affect our climate.

livestock managementLivestock produce methane through enteric fermentation and release it through eructation. Increased demand for a meat-based diet is a large contributor for climate change.Livestock are domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce commodities such as food, fiber and labor. ..., carbon

Broader terms:
greenhouse effectThe greenhouse effect is the natural process where the atmosphere traps part of the sun's energy, a necessary process to keep the planet warm enough for life as we know it. Today scientists believe an anthropogenic increase in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide is increasing the effect ...

Narrower terms:
greenhouse gas emissionsGreenhouse gas emissions cause dangerous anthropogenic climate change. Emissions include CO2, fluoridated gases, methane which are emitted by human activity such as deforestation and burning fossil fuels, and water vapour., direct emissionsDirect emissions occur through heating and car use.Emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the reporting company. (WRI, 2013), GHG emission reduction, emission scenariosA plausible representation of the future development of emissions of substances that are potentially radiatively active (e.g., greenhouse gases, aerosols), based on a coherent and internally consistent set of assumptions about driving forces (such as demographic and socioeconomic development, ..., global warming potentialAn index, based upon radiative properties of well mixed greenhouse gases, measuring the radiative forcing of a unit mass of a given well mixed greenhouse gas in today's atmosphere integrated over a chosen time horizon, relative to that of carbon dioxide. The GWP represents the combined effect ..., emission factorsDescribes CO2 emissions per unit of fuel; biomass is regarded to have an emission factor of zero.An emission factor is a unique value for scaling emissions to activity data in terms of a standard rate of emissions per unit of activity (e.g., grams of CO2 emitted per liter of fossil fuel ..., estimated emissions, total global anthropogenic emissions, emission sources
