People ‘have to turn to vegetarian or vegan
diets' to stop climate change, UN report warns

Original Article

People must switch from meat-heavy Western diets to vegetarian or vegan diets to avert climate change, a United Nations-backed report has warned. By 2050, the world will need to produce 56% more food than in 2010, to feed a predicted 9.8 billion people. If the level of meat and dairy consumption rises in line with current trends, 2.3 million square miles of forest will need to be converted for agriculture. Our system of producing food already accounts for between 25-30% of greenhouse gases, the UN’s Creating a Sustainable Food Future report warned. Johan Rockstrom, former director of the Potsdam Institute

Forget about those steaks on the grille. Tofu, soy milk, and raw seaweed will save the planet.

Convince all the people in China and India to go vegan and stop their wanton pollution as a daily habit and after I see results then I will consider it...not do it, but think about it.

Absolute BS. Water vapor is the biggest greenhouse gas by far, about 99%. Most CO2 is from natural sources, by a huge margin (85%). 30% of the man-made sources of carbon dioxide and methane may be from food production, however.

Ill give up meat when I either have to slaughter my own or when tasty farm animals cease to exist. You will excuse me now, as I have to fire up the grill for a particularly large slab of London Broil that requires my attention.

Humans are carnivorous, they have ever been so. The vegan "idealists" don't think it is good for you, and they are working toward removing choice, it's called dictatorship.

I suggest that all those that believe this nonsense, take ultimate responsibility and put a plastic bag over their heads and duct take it tightly closed around their neck. That will minimize CO2 and avert climate change. Put up or shut up.

So, his comment of "our system of producing food accounts for 25-30% of greenhouse gases, is referring to cow FARTS. Just AOC, she cited it in her New Green Deal, and the state of California is working hard at removing their once flourishing dairy industry, but it's just moving to AZ, NM and TX. But, CA will be able to say they're reducing their emissions though, by gosh. How much more land would be needed just to plant all the fruits and veggies? Lastly, remember about 30 years ago when Brazil was clear-cutting massive amounts of their rain forest, and how they suddenly found global warming which has later transformed into climate change? Any linkage to the loss of all those trees that were absorbing CO2?

RE #8: Try that delicious London Broil this way: Heat oven to 350° Roughly chop one med. sweet onion and one med. green bell pepper. Dump in the bottom of a casserole dish with 1lb of baby carrots and salt and pepper to taste. Season meat with a salt and pepper on both sides and place on top of veggies. Mix together 3-4 cups of beef stock, depending on size of meat, 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, one packet of onion soup mix and one can of cream of mushroom soup. Pour around, but not over, meat until liquid is 3/4 of the way up the side of the meat. Cover and place in oven and bake for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, until meat is fork tender. Serve over egg noodles or rice. This will make it's own gravy so you won't need to do anything in but call the family to dinner. Enjoy!!

Maybe you should advise some countries to practice birth control, then there would be less food to produce. Some of those women are having 14 kids.

We’re told the cable network hopes to hire regular CNN contributors April Ryan, Andrew Gillum, Angela Rye and Bakari Sellers as panelists for a brand-new show.

Former Vice President Joe Biden leads the pack of Democratic presidential candidates by double digits, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is narrowing the gap, according to a new survey by Quinnipiac University Poll released on Tuesday. Warren’s support rose to 21 percent among Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters, the survey says, a 5-point gain since late last month. That puts her comfortably in second place. Biden, the primary contest’s front-runner, still leads the pack, notching 32 percent support in the latest Quinnipiac poll. But that’s a 2-point drop since the last survey, leaving a smaller gap between him and Warren. Sen.

Detroit — the largest African American majority city in America — is home to a microcosm of systemic issues facing cities across the nation: Poverty, crime, struggling educational systems, a lack of affordable housing and long-term disinvestment, to name a few. Yet, it and other cities like it, were tossed on a back burner while candidates traded barbs and debated at length the minutia of each other's health care proposals.

It says the plaintiffs founded Diverse Medical Management to reform failing rural hospitals, and Jim Biden promised to sell the health care plan to investors. It says Biden and Lewitt then urged the plaintiffs to borrow $10 million from Lewitt that would be repaid by investors.

Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller of San Antonio, one of the highest ranking Mexican American Catholic leaders in the country, was left in shock on Saturday when he heard about the mass shooting in El Paso that killed at least 22 people in his state. Garcia-Siller said there was “no justifiable explanation for such scenes of horror.” But what was clear to the archbishop, who recently supported migrants and asylum seekers crossing the southern border, was that President Trump’s “invasion” rhetoric against Hispanics, language echoed in a manifesto police believe was posted by the alleged El Paso gunman, helped create a climate that led to the tragedy.

John Solomon recently broke the news that former FBI director James Comey will soon face a “reckoning” for leaking memos of his conversations with the president. Solomon means Comey will be embarrassed by an imminent inspector general report containing stern language. Solomon does not mean that Comey will face any legal consequences, however, because “prosecutors working for Attorney General William Barr reportedly have decided to decline prosecution.” Many recognize Comey as a central figure in the Russia collusion hoax, the U.S. Department of Justice’s interference in the 2016 election, and subsequent resistance to the transfer of power to President Trump.

Democrats want to come for your guns and they aren’t hiding it anymore. Former Vice President Joe Biden said as much on CNN Monday with Anderson Cooper.Discussing his support for a national buyback program of “assault weapons,” the Democratic presidential candidate said that if elected, he is “going to come” for them. “So to gun owners out there who say well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns,” Cooper said to Biden, who interjected: “Bingo. You’re right if you have an assault weapon.” “The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period,” he added.

When it comes to gun control, conservatives have been fortunate in their enemies. Every time there is a mass shooting, the left renews its calls for gun control, but it spends a great deal of energy on futile and ahistorical arguments about the wording of the Second Amendment, or making hackle-raising, invidious comparisons with Europe. And when it comes time to actually suggest what should be done, Democrats generally suggest policies recycled from the 1994 crime bill, such as background checks and a ban on assault weapons. There’s little evidence that these policies did anything to curb gun violence the first time
