Methane. Gassy gold. Flatulence may be what keeps us warm in the coming Ice Age. Wait, I'm confused. Are we getting too hot, too cold or porridge-pot just right? I don't know and I am pretty sure the groups espousing one way or another don't know either, but somebody is gonna make money either which way it goes. Gore, for all his flatulence, has never to my knowledge belched that we have to stop eating meat one day a week. Talk about bad timing, what with a Moose killer on the ticket as a VP.
The UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation has estimated that meat production accounts for nearly a fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions. These are generated during the production of animal feeds, for example, while ruminants, particularly cows, emit methane, which is 23 times more effective as a global warming agent than carbon dioxide. The agency has also warned that meat consumption is set to double by the middle of the century.
'In terms of immediacy of action and the feasibility of bringing about reductions in a short period of time, it clearly is the most attractive opportunity,' said Pachauri. 'Give up meat for one day [a week] initially, and decrease it from there,' said the Indian economist, who is a vegetarian.
Okay, a vegetarian from a country that worships beef wants us to have a meatless day, kinda like those loony Catholics with their fishy Friday. Do fish poof?
Does this mean that Dr Rajendra Pachauri is going to start cold-turkey one day a week with out beans?
