Global Warming activists launch new attack on livestock, dairy

This article originally appeared on heartland.org.

Global warming activists launched a new attack on livestock and dairy, claiming it will be impossible to address global warming properly unless people cut back on their beef and dairy intake. The claims were made in a paper published in Nature Climate Change.

“Western diets are increasingly characterized by excessive consumption of food, including that of emission-intensive meat and dairy products. We tested a scenario where all countries were assumed to achieve an average balanced diet — without excessive consumption of sugars, fats, and meat products. This significantly reduced the pressures on the environment even further,” claimed researchers at two universities in the paper.

The researchers defined a “balanced” diet as only 6 ounces of meat and 5 eggs per week.

The scientists claimed they were not advocating people being vegetarians, but instead eating “sensible” amounts of meat and dairy.
