Eating beef ' is less green than driving'
Producing 2.2lb of beef generates as much greenhouse gas as driving a car non-stop for three hours, it was claimed yesterday.
Su Taylor, the press officer for the Vegetarian Society, told New Scientist: "Everybody is trying to come up with different ways to reduce carbon footprints, but one of the easiest things you can do is to stop eating meat."
I have neither the knowledge, desire, nor inclination to start looking into this numbers game that these people are playing; I'll leave to that to Bike Bubba, he seems to have the gift of cutting through the crap.
To Su, I say---how easy do you think it will be to extinguish at least 7,000 years of human appetite for meat?
I also say this: you'll get my cold, dead, bloody, slab of beef ribs when you pry it from my cold, dead, bloody hands. Good luck talking Mocha-momma into going vegan; she'd go out and strangle a cow herself to get a good prime rib.
