Perhaps this is the wrong area for this question but anywhooo! Would you become a vegetatian in order to do your bit to stop global warming?
We need to start hunting again.
It is the consumption of farmed veritable products fed to the animals including pigs and chicken. It is corn used for feed. This corn requires fossil fuels to plant, and at a minimum, harvest, the corn. There is a lot of energy expended just growing the feed for the animals.
I wasn't suggesting killing all ruminants, just phasing out all farmed ruminants.
whether it is the cow or the bacteria doesn't amount to a cup of beansThe microbes are in the ruminates so there can be no separation of the two.
The BEST thing that can happen for the world is the Malthusian Principle to start operating - and we are seeing signs of that occurring.
Perhaps we should pay more attention to GM foods and other scientific breakthroughs that have been burried by over concerned under educated people.
I'm not saying it is a perfected science, I'm saying that future food shortages may be helped my future discoveries that should be explored fully. Scientists are now discovering how to stand up for themselves in the media and this is vital if we are to face and solve the problems the future may hold.
