The article focuses on a report by the Frontier Research Centre for Global Change, a Japanese research group at the Japan Agency for Marine Earth Science Technology, which revealed that nitrogen-based fertilizers used in farms are contributing to global warming. The findings are based on the analysis of air trapped in layers of ice in Antarctica.
