While this is true, it is actually part of an important natural cycle that has been occurring since the beginning of life, known as the biogenic carbon cycle.
This process is known as photosynthesis and is fundamental to the biogenic carbon cycle.When plants perform photosynthesis, carbon is mainly converted into cellulose, which is a carbohydrate and one of the main building blocks of plants.
Cellulose turns out to be the world’s most abundant organic compound. It is found in: Grasses, Shrubs, Crops, Trees, etc. Cellulose content is particularly high in grasses and shrubs found in marginal lands. These are usually areas where cereal grains and other edible crops for human consumption cannot be grown. Two-thirds of all agricultural land on the planet is marginal, filled with cellulose-rich grasses that are undigestible for humans.
As a result of cellulose consumption, livestock lose carbon in the form of CH4 and therefore return the carbon sequestered by plants into the atmosphere.
After approximately 10 years, CH4 (methane) breaks down (hydroxyl oxidation) and is converted back into CO2 [CH4 –> CO2 + H2O].Once converted to CO2, plants can uptake it once more through photosynthesis and fix that carbon into cellulose…. Read full article here
