Green 'Scientists': Hamburgers Cause Global Warming

When it comes to global warming, hamburgers are the Hummers of food, scientists say.
Simply switching from steak to salad could cut as much carbon as leaving the car at home a couple days a week. That's because beef is such an incredibly inefficient food to produce and cows release so much harmful methane into the atmosphere, said Nathan Pelletier of Dalhousie University in Canada.
That's why changing the kinds of food people eat is so important, said Chris Weber, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania.
"Switching to no red meat and no dairy products is the equivalent of (cutting out) 8,100 miles driven in a car ... that gets 25 miles to the gallon," Weber said in an interview following the symposium.
Buying local meat and produce will not have nearly the same effect, he cautioned. That's because only five percent of the emissions related to food come from transporting food to market.

re: "changing the...foods people eat is so important"
The idea of *forbidding 'beef' may sound ludicrous to the average person who is still woefully unaware of the true agenda of the 'Green Agenda', but nonetheless is truly part of the planned transformation of society worldwide. Absolute micromanagement of the planet earth and everything on it is the only goal, despite the lofty ideals put forth by ignorant proponents. Every person and every square inch of land is to be owned and controlled, period. The God-defying globalists have big plans for this earth, and believe it or not, in their envisioned new world, it is the common people that will be treated like 'cattle'. see: 666
When seeing this type of thing it should be understood that what is being said is exactly what is to be done. They are dead serious about it. That these 'scientists' putting out this nonsense are funded by the globalist agenda needs no comment. e.g. see: Nasa: Four years to save earth. more to come

*No hamburgers? Here is a partial list culled from the 1,140 page United Nations "Biodiversity Assessment Report", which was published in November of 1995. Things that are 'unsustainable' for the future global society. Right from the horse's mouth, so to speak:
automobiles, modern farm production systems (no use of machines is allowed), irrigation, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, farmlands, rangelands, pastures, fish ponds, plantations, forestry, urbanization, impervious surfaces, fisheries, grazing of livestock, disturbance of the soil surface, large hoofed animals, industrial activities, plastic production, synthetic products, the use of machines, CFCs, technology improvements, natural gas production, cemeteries...continued, see: wrenching transformation (follow links for more info)
