This is better than Climategate because it is so much stupider to begin with. According to a 2006 United Nations (UN) report (there’s your first strike) titled “Livestock’s Long Shadow”, “livestock is responsible for 18 % of the greenhouse gases… a higher share than transport.” The problem arises when the “science” is scrutinized. Apparently the “scientists” factored in growing animal feed and processing meat and dairy products as well as digestive gases, which was an unfair comparison to the transport industry.

The giant brain behind this revelation, Frank Mitloehner, an air quality expert at the University of California at Davis, says the focus of reducing greenhouse gases should be on smarter farming not less farming. But alas, here he opens a whole new can of liberal dilemmas. Smart farming amounts to cruelty to animals, something that is sure to tweak the peta people out of shape.

Giant Brain went on to recommend that the US reduce the use of oil and coal claiming that this creates 26 % of all greenhouse gases. This is all fine and dandy but the whole schmear ignores the obvious fact that GLOBAL WARMING IS A LIE! Yes, remember, Climategate, hide the decline, the winter of 1979? Do I need to continue or are you starting to remember? Anyway, if you would like to read a bang-up article from Jenifer Harper of the Washington Times about this go to www.dumb. Until next time, screw environmentalists.
