The Global Warming movement is a religion….it’s certainly not based on sound science! The latest nonsense is proffered by Lord Stern, the author of the influential 2006 Stern Review on the cost of tackling global warming.
Lord Stern of Brentford says: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.” Basically he’s saying “cows fart”, consequently, they are significant, global emitters of methane gas, which contributes to global warming.
Lord Stern is literally talking out of his backside. First, he says it’s all the fault of cows & pigs. Wrong! It’s ruminants which are the major contributors to animal emissions of methane gas. Ruminants are animals which “chew the cud”, including cattle, goats, sheep, giraffes, bison, yaks, water buffalo, deer, camels, alpacas, llamas, wildebeest, antelope…..but, not pigs.
Lord Stern is obviously not a vegetarian otherwise he would understand the consequences of humans universally adopting a vegetarian diet. Everyone else knows that a vegetarian diet causes flatulence. His suggestion that we stop eating meat & go veggy simply means that humans replace cows as one of the largest emitters of methane on the planet.
It’s a dangerous strategy for the human race to adopt. Dinosaurs were once the largest emitters of methane and we all know what happened to them. Incidentally pigs may not be the largest emitters of methane but, anyone who has passed a pig farm will know that there is another problem:
