Climate Depot’s Round Up on Global Warming and Meat Eating, Agriculture and Cows

The warmists have proposed really disgusting “solutions” to meat eating: See: ‘Poop burgers’ to save the planet! Japanese scientist creates artificial meat from human feces

In 2006, a UN report blamed cows for global warming:  See: Cow ’emissions’ more damaging to planet than CO2 from cars: UN report: ‘Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together’

But then, these claims fell into dispute: UN admits flaw in report on meat and climate change: Admits ‘a report linking livestock to global warming exaggerated impact of eating meat on climate change’

More Woes: UN body to look at meat and climate link after claims that earlier UN report exaggerated the link

Report: Vegetarians are wrong and eating less meat will NOT save planet — Study finds ‘exaggerated links between farming and global warming’

Flashback September 2009: Science not so ‘settled’: Study rebuts UN livestock emission claims – Meat Eaters Off the Hook?

Then, we have very frightening activists proposing new “solutions” to correct meat eaters. See: NYU Bioethicist S. Matthew Liao again suggests ‘voluntarily’ medicating the public and shrinking humans to make them care more about global warming — Liao: ‘The stuff that we looked at are things we currently already can do. So they are not meant to be very farfetched scenarios. They are meant to be realistic. — ‘Screen for embryos that are expected to be shorter. Another possibility is you can get hormone treatments…We can use that technology to have smaller children’

NYU Bioethicist Prof. Liao on Eating meat: Seeks to ‘Make ourselves allergic to those proteins…unpleasant reaction…The way we can do that is to create some sort of meat patch’ — ‘Kind of like a nicotine patch where you put it on before you go to dinner go out to restaurant and this will curb your enthusiasm for eating meat’

The global warming activists are still convinced meat eating is evil for our climate: 

Animal Rights’ Peter Singer: ‘Why are they serving meat at a climate conference?’ — The best thing conference could do for climate is to remove meat from menu —and to make a big deal about it’ — ‘No one really believes Rio+20 meeting will result in a new agreement to limit ghgs…. If UN & allnational delegations & activist groups at Rio+20 were to insist on eliminating meat at all buffets, private dinners, embassy receptions, luncheons & breakfast briefings, people might start to think UN takes seriously the damage that human activity is causing to the planet’

Nutritional McCarthyism: Red Meat To Blame for Death, Global Warming, Tsunamis, Mine Collapses, and Terrorist Attacks — ‘Red meat is probably the cause behind the Congo train derailment and the Yangtze River dolphin extinction, too’

‘Poop burgers’ to save the planet??! Japanese scientist allegedly creates artificial meat from human feces – or did he?

UK greenie George Monbiot 2002 warned we only had 10 years! ‘Famine can only be avoided if the rich give up meat, fish and dairy’ — Now only 7 Months Left Until Starvation Sets In! — Monbiot on December 24, 2002: ‘Within as little as 10 years, the world will be faced with a choice: arable farming either continues to feed the world’s animals or it continues to feed the world’s people. It cannot do both’

Ignoring the advice of the NASA’s Hansen and IPCC’s Pachauri, The First Green President Obama serves plenty of meat at the White House

‘Artificial meat grown in vats may be needed if 9 billion people expected to be alive in 2050 are to be adequately fed without destroying earth’

Paul McCartney calls for meat-free Mondays to combat climate change

Liverpool schools to go meat free once a week under ‘radical new plan to protect the environment

Meat Eating Called ‘The Slavery Of Our Time’ — Predicted to soon be ‘Unthinkable Crime’

Play Methane Madness: put a cork in Gore’s climate day: ‘CFACT’s new game trains online players to help ‘Pal Gore’ control the climate by corking cows and watching them float away’ — Direct link to ‘Methane Madness’ game is here.

Garlic-fed cows combat global warming! Garlic ‘kills off methane-producing bacterium in the digestive system of cows…they release 40% less gas’

Sorry Vegetarians, Cow Burps Are Not Causing (As Much) Global Warming — ‘new study shows cows are more climate friendly than previously believed’

Here we go again: Study: Combat climate change with less gassy diet for cows — ‘farting, belching and manure contribute a 5th of planet’s greenhouse gas emissions’

Flashback April 2010: UN’s CowGate Continues: Cows absolved of causing global warming: ‘Livestock could actually be good for environment…can cut emissions of a powerful greenhouse gas’

NY Times: Cows ‘emitting a fragrant burp’ may help ‘cap gas’ and fight global warming

Update 2013: Review paper finds growth of atmospheric methane has significantly decreased, opposite of IPCC predictions – A new review paper from SPPI and CO2 Science finds the growth rate of atmospheric methane has significantly decreased over the past 30 years, the opposite of IPCC predictions. Separately, a new paper finds, “Warming may not release Arctic carbon – Element could stay locked in soil, 20-year study suggests.”
