It's the Cow Farts, Stupid

A new United Nations report blames cattle and other livestock for greenhouse gas emissions:
Meet the world's top destroyer of the environment. It is not the car, or the plane,or even George Bush: it is the cow.

A United Nations report has identified the world's rapidly growing herds of cattle as the greatest threat to the climate, forests and wildlife. And they are blamed for a host of other environmental crimes, from acid rain to the introduction of alien species, from producing deserts to creating dead zones in the oceans, from poisoning rivers and drinking water to destroying coral reefs.
Imagine, wild herbivores were running amok for milennia, destroying the environment and plotting in their evil little planteater brains to bring the world closer and closer to the brink of cataclysmic climate change.

Thank God Al Gore was born, in the nick of time, to warn us all.
