The whole meat link to global warming is an enormous steaming pile of BS.
CH4 emissions from cattle are insignificant compared to land fills and release of permafrost CH4 even if much of it gets converted to CO2 during the
emission process. Stopping meat production will not and physically cannot save anything. Industrial, transport and biomass burning emissions of
CO2 will continue at the 30+ billion tons per year level even all of the livestock on the planet was zapped out of existence.
Then we have the cherry on top of this turd cake. Marginal land grazing by livestock actually sequesters carbon in the soil. Plants exhibit a balance
between the root network and the green foliage. So when grass is cropped by livestock, part of its root network dies and turns into soil. It does not
get converted into CO2 (and CH4), it contributes to soil formation. A farmer who properly rotates grazing fields is actually one of the prime agents on
the planet to fight global warming.
The road to Hell is truly paved with good intentions. And idiocy.
