Position paper on the proposed ban of carbon dioxide for rodent euthanasia

The use of carbon dioxide for rodent euthanasia is currently a matter of intense debate, with an announced intention to discourage it, or even to prohibit it. A systematic review of publications related to the use of carbon dioxide for euthanasia in mice and rats is being conducted by an IACLAM (International Association of Colleges of Laboratory Animal Medicine) task force. Preliminary results reveal that there is very little scientific evidence supporting its prohibition so far and concluded in recommending additional research.

Land is under pressure from humans and climate change, but it is part of the solution

Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2 °C can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its latest report on Thursday.
