    Devote much less of our agriculture to meat animals would be a very good start. No more slash-and-burn of forests loaded with food.

    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.

    Climate change is real. Man caused climarte change is a lie.

    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

    Been watching the Al Jazeera or MSNBC?
    Have you ever been west of the Mississippi River?Ever,at all?
    Most imported beef comes from Canada,Austrailia,and New Zealand.In that order.
    Uruguay is avery distant 4th,and Brazil,where the rain forest is, is a very,very distant 5th.Why would the LWNJ’s think that it is ok to go after very poor subsistence farmers and ranchers who live where the isn’t even electricity for the most part.What do you think those folks should do?Vote democrat and go on welfare and food stamps?Get free Obama phones? How about some research before you tell us how much you don’t know.

    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.

    A cow does on overage release between 70 and 120 kg of Methane per year. Methane is a greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide (CO2). But the negative effect on the climate of Methane is 23 times higher than the effect of CO2. Therefore the release of about 100 kg Methane per year for each cow is equivalent to about 2’300 kg CO2 per year.
    Let’s compare this value of 2’300 kg CO2: The same amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) is generated by burning 1’000 liters of petrol. With a car using 8 liters of petrol per 100 km, you could drive 12’500 km per year (7’800 miles per year).
    .
    World-wide, there are about 1.5 billion cows and bulls. All ruminants (animals which regurgitates food and re-chews it) on the world emit about two billion metric tons of CO2-equivalents per year. In addition, clearing of tropical forests and rain forests to get more grazing land and farm land is responsible for an extra 2.8 billion metric tons of CO2 emission per year!

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

    “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.
