And the UN is getting involved too:
A recent pronouncement from the head of the UN climate change agency that the best thing people can do to halt global warming is to turn vegetarian has taken the debate a step further.Now, here's the problem with this approach. If you think human beings are emitting so much CO2 that we're creating impending doom from global warming... killing more plants is hardly the answer. Plants absorb CO2 and produce oxygen, they are cleaners, they are the lungs of the planet, as it were. They sweep CO2 which is supposedly going to kill us all. Eating more plants means that you are reducing the planet's ability to clean up the killer CO2.
In other words, activism and good intentions are trumping science, yet again, at the UN and on the left. What makes me so confused is that the left screams that its the right that is anti-science.
