Are you ready for meatless Friday, Saturday and Sunday? And milkless too?

See, raising livestock is a “bad, bad thing” for the climate. And now the “Food Climate Research Group” has a solution. Ration meat and milk to four “moderate” samples per week.

I think we may have finally found the Global Warming measure that Al Gore himself will argue against. 😉

Here’s the money quote from the study:

Tara Garnett, the report’s author, warned that campaigns encouraging people to change their habits voluntarily were doomed to fail and urged the government to use caps on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon pricing to ensure changes were made. “Food is important to us in a great many cultural and symbolic ways, and our food choices are affected by cost, time, habit and other influences,” the report says. “Study upon study has shown that awareness-raising campaigns alone are unlikely to work, particularly when it comes to more difficult changes.”

In other words, prepare for confiscation of your excess meat and milk.

And you thought it was going to be bad when the greenshirts rationed your GASOLINE….

By they way, this “study” singled out fast food, sweets and chocolate as particularly bad for the environment…

I suppose if it is sold at Wal-Mart it probably made the list.
