    Select Question Language :


    About 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions come from agricultural practices. This includes nitrous oxide from fertilizers; methane from livestock, rice production, and manure storage; and carbon dioxide (CO2) from burning biomass, but this excludes CO2 emissions from soil management practices, sayannah burning and deforestation. Foresty and use, and land-use change account for another 17 percent of greenhouse gas emissions each year, three quarters of which come from tropical deforestation. The remainder is largely from draining and burning tropical peatland. About the same amount of carbon is stored in the world’s peatlands as is stored in the Amazon rainforest.

    Which among the following is the most logical and 
    rational inference that can be made from the above passage?

    Options :-

    1. Organic farming should immediately replace mechanised and chemical dependant agricultural practices all over the world

    2. It is imperative for us to modify our land use practices in order to mitigate climate change.

    3. There are no technological solutions to the problem of greenhouse gas emissions

    4. Tropical areas are the chief sites of carbon sequestration
