Livestock make up a substantial percentage of global greenhouse gas emissions, and a group of environmental and animal welfare groups have had enough of what they say is inadequate Environmental Protection Agency oversight on those emissions.

This week, a group of eight organizations, including the Humane Society of the United States, Center for Food Safety and the Sierra Club, filed two lawsuits against the EPA for not doing enough to control emissions from large Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or CAFOs. One lawsuit deals with ammonia pollution, and the other addresses methane and other air pollutants.
