"They are trying to appeal to the climate activists, to the youth activists, to gen up more business," Morano tells OneNewsNow. "I don't think their marketing is going to work because when people think of cows, they don't want to think of cows emitting gases – because that's going to be a turnoff first of all for eating a Whopper.
"And also, when [people] think of eating food, they want to eat something that tastes the best – not something that is virtue signaling out to the public."
Morano: "I tip my hat to the college professors, to the woke media, to the social justice movements. They own corporate America, and this is just a silly capitulation to really bad climate science claims."
Burger King says it has rebalanced the diet of some of the cows by adding lemongrass. In doing so, Burger King believes it can reduce a cow’s daily methane emissions by about 33%. Methane emissions are considered by some individuals, think tanks, and special interest groups to be a big contributor to man-made climate change.
Marc Morano, a skeptic of catastrophic man-made climate change, says this is silly.
“They are trying to appeal to the climate activists, to the youth activists, to gen up more business,” Morano tells OneNewsNow. “I don’t think their marketing is going to work because when people think of cows, they don’t want to think of cows emitting gases – because that’s going to be a turnoff first of all for eating a Whopper.

Morano, who is a spokesman for Climate Depot, also dismisses concern over methane.
“It’s been called the irrelevant greenhouse gas,” he explains. “It just can’t have the impact that they claim, and even the United Nations has had contradictory studies on so-called cow emissions, but the larger story here is this is just more appeasement by corporate America.”
Prior to this announcement and ad campaign, Burger King began offering plant-based products in its menu. Two years ago, McDonald’s said it was taking steps to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

‘The tiny increases in methane associated with cows may elicit a few giggles, but it absolutely cannot be the basis for sane regulations or national policy.’

Mann: “The science doesn’t support this the best carbon cycle scientists who have studied this problem say ‘yeah there’s a certain amount of methane that we it could be mobilized and it will add to the warming, but it’s a small contribution compared to the warming we are causing by the burning of fossil fuels.'”
Green New Deal’s false scientific premise exposed: Physicist rips cow farting climate fears: ‘Worrying about methane emissions is the greatest waste of time’
New research finds methane virtually irrelevant as a greenhouse gas
Physicist Dr. Tom Sheahen: “Worrying about methane emissions is the greatest waste of time in the entire lexicon of global warming fanaticism. Converting methane to CO2 is done by the process of “flaring” — setting fire to the stack gas coming off from an oil well, as is done daily throughout the middle east, where the oil is valued but the CH4 is not…The number ‘Global Warming Potential’ is completely false, a nonsense calculation thought up by the IPCC to drum up more concern beyond just CO2.”
