    Hey! Farmers, and drug manufacturers have absolutely no right to profit! It should be enough to know they produce something so vital!

    “OK where in this country are burning forests?”

    Beef is imported from South America, where they slash and burn rainforest to create pastures for cattle.

    The cost of preventing global warming — an appropriate tax on carbon — is much, much lower than the costs of war, pestilence, famine, flooding, and death. Until the GOP agrees, it is deeply immoral to vote for any Republican.

    According to the USDA ‘U.S. livestock imports come from Canada and Mexico’ Not South America

    ince 9,135 of 9,136 climate scientists with peer-reviewed publications agree that human-caused climate change is occurring now, you are rather outnumbered.
    You are also actively insulting many dedicated scientists by calling it “a lie.” You are not entitled to make that statement; you are not qualified to judge!
    Even if you were, it is utterly absurd to claim that 9,135 scientists — who have no greater pleasure than to disprove someone else’s hypothesis — are agreeing to lie.
    I suggest you at least moderate your language. And read up on the research. And then there are a lot of scientists who deserve an apology from you.
    Here’s the study — AGAIN — which not only provides rather dramatic results but also has links to the original data.

    “The meat used in fast food burgers do come from S. America.”

    Well, here’s another liberal lie! Whatever substance is in a fast food burger shouldn’t be described as “meat”.

    But seriously folks, near as I can tell, none of the big chains uses so-called “rain forest meat”. People in South America want to eat like North Americans. That’s what’s driving the rise in cattle production south of the border, not your local franchise.

    The amount of beef eaten in the us has fallen dramatically in the last 30 years. The issue isn’t beef

    Do note that Martens’ note is addressed to lonecat and myself, and in fact recommends skipping some posters BECAUSE they are uninformed. So your advice is not really to the point here. Especially from someone who feels comfortable referring to “liberal lies.”

    The point of no return was 400 PPM CO2. We passed that a while ago. Bend over and kiss it goodbye.

    1) I didn’t say all of our beef imports come from South America. I do recall some time back when it became public that McDonald’s was importing beef from South America. The company then switched suppliers and started an ad campaign about using domestic beef.

    2) Just because the US may not import as much South American beef as it used to doesn’t mean the actions of cattle ranchers in South America doesn’t affect global climate.

    3) The problem with using slash and burn former rainforest land for crops is the soil makes for very poor farmland. Farmers usually move on to new deforested areas after only a couple of years. Subsistance farmers can make money growing shade crops inside the rainforest such as coffee and cocoa. Several small organizations are teaching farmers how to do it successfully.

    4) Cattle ranchers are not subsistence farmers.

    5) Rude tone, Obama phone, free stuff = Democrats….. blah blah blah.

    I live in a forest, and don’t see any on the horizon.
