Save the World! Go Vegan!

We have to regulate cow farts.

It May Take a Global Vegetarian Movement to Combat Climate Change.” That’s the title of a National Journal article this week, but here’s the real kicker, penned in the very first paragraph: “If we really want to cut down on global greenhouse emissions, we’re going to have to do something about cow farts.” Yes, cow farts. “That’s the conclusion of a study published [Monday] in the journal Climatic Change,” reports Brian Resnick, who added that the researchers are proposing less meaty diets and fewer livestock because it’s the only “shot of reaching the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s global-warming mitigation goals.” According to the analysis, meat consumption will need to be reduced between 25% and 75% depending on the level of other fossil fuel-cutting measures. That’s ironic – the solution for saving mankind is now the regulation of … nature? In other news: “Study: Vegetarians Less Healthy, Lower Quality Of Life Than Meat-Eaters.”
