Carnivores rejoice!

This in from The Telegraph UK – In the past environmentalists, from Lord Stern to Sir Paul McCartney, have urged people to stop eating meat because the methane produced by cattle causes global warming. However a new study found that cattle grazed on the grasslands of China actually reduce another greenhouse gas, nitrous oxide.

Dr Klaus Butterbach-Bahl, of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, said, “It’s been generally assumed that if you increase livestock numbers you get a rise in emissions of nitrous oxide. This is not the case.”

Wonder if PETA plans to apologize to His Honor, Monsieur Al Gore? Let’s hope not.
