Where the line is drawn on Global Warming

Ok, Ok, so the world is getting warmer and perhaps there is a 90% chance that it’s our fault. Our reckless and selfish habits are driving us (no pun intended) into a cataclysm of biblical proportions, or so some might have us believe.

Like a good citizen of the world I might be willing to change my lifestyle to soothe the conscience of our more green-minded folk. Perhaps doing small things which are mainly done to make us feel better about ourselves and like we’re making a difference. Perhaps we can go extreme and dump the criminal gas guzzler for a granola-driven Prius (I know it’s not granola-drive so save it).

These things I might see myself doing if I truly believed what some climate scientists and a former vice-president are selling.

This being said, this story delineates where the line must be drawn regarding this global warming business. Here’s a snippet:

livestock are a major emitter of greenhouse gases that cause climate change. And as meat becomes a growing mainstay of human diet around the world, changing what we eat may prove as hard as changing what we drive.

NO, NO, and NO. I’ll recycle whatever I might be asked (or forced) to recycle. Aluminum, Copper, Paper of all kinds. Give up beef? How dare they!!! Here I must take my stand and up until this I somewhat considered suggested guidelines for curbing global warming.

Beef eaters of the World Unite!!! Save the Steak!!!

    Now all we need is for someone to figure out a way to capture all the methane gas emitted by ruminant livestock and put it to good use, like fuel for transportation, thereby decreasing our dependency on fossil fuel. A constant renewable energy resource! Yeah! We can have our steak and eat it too!

    the way i see it, it’s either meat and potatoes every meal, or your SUV.

    personally, i’ll stick to veggies and pasta (with a meat meal here and there) and keep my jeep.

    It’s a good thing we don’t own an SUV, thanks for your comment Eric.
