Greenhouse gas (GHG): Gases that may contribute to “Climate change and global warming”. Carbon dioxide (CO2 ), methane (CH4 ) and nitrous oxide (N2 O) are the major GHGs. These gases do not absorb incoming short-wavelength and high-frequency radiation, which, therefore, passes through the atmosphere reaching soil and plants. Part of the energy is absorbed by the plants and converted to organic material and heat. A fraction is reflected to the atmosphere in the form of long-wavelength and low-frequency radiation.

To contribute to the total welfare of society). The fact that the “public policy” addresses societal objectives does not mean that everybody in the society equally accepts this policy and its consequences. There is often a strong divide in societies between those who believe in the cleansing mechanism of the market and in the ability of humans to act responsibly, and who therefore prefer a minimum of government intervention, and those who emphasise the failures of markets and the need to help the less endowed in society and therefore favour more extensive government intervention.

In addition, the increased economic wealth of people in rich countries enables a larger proportion of the population to pay for products that are produced in a more environmentally sound and animal friendly way. Most of the regulations promote recycling or use of the manure by encouraging environmentally sound manure management and the use of environmental technologies to mitigate environmental problems. This chapter briefly summarises the pollution risks related to manure management and the government regulations and incentives to reduce this pollution.
