Default burping cows

Was amazed to learn the other day that one cow, will burp enough methane gas to cause enough environmental damage per year as a 4 by 4 car. So scoffing meat isn't good for the planet. Wow. :shock:

True.
But cows can not prevent their burping. Human beings CAN stop driving their 4X4's (and stop eating animal flesh) :wink:

With their 4 stomachs, alas ruminants don't burp their methane out! It's a far* worse outcome! :P

Here's some more info on methane & climate change.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/feature..._methane.shtml

It's another reason NOT to eat beef (esp fast food hamburgers?) because tropical forests are being cleared in South America to make way for cattle-herds destined for your local maccie-dees, etc. :x

The thing about rice paddies is interesting too, from a MB pov :? - I think I read somewhere that the CH4 impact from rice paddies is 'not as bad' as from industrial farming of cattle if one looks at sustainable agriculture as a whole (or something like that - can't quite remember it! :roll: )

:lol:

Mac Murder it is.
The success of Mac will go on forever since this is a fastfood world...with fastfood people. I'm proud to not be part of that.

Very interesting topic. No. I don't eat at McDonald's and never will. I've stopped eating red meat quite a while ago. I can't remember precisely when. It's been about 5-6 years now.
I too don't eat at fast-food restaurants or in food courts and am proud of it.
