Black Helicopters above the Meat Wall

Running above the fold on the Drudge Report last night was a story about a new report from Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, saying people should endeavor to have at least one meat-free day per week.

As an avid meat fan, I agree 100%. People should eat less meat. Not even because of global warming, but for themselves and their pocketbooks.

Here’s what I think is the biggest problem: “Vegetarianism” is regarded as a lifestyle and (worse) a political choice, instead of just a cuisine. Few people say “we’re going out for vegetarian tonight” the way they might say “we’re going out for thai.” But there’s no reason not to. Eating delicious vegetarian food is almost as simple as calling Domino’s and ordering a plain pizza.

One important note: although it would be helpful in some regards, being a vegetarian who eats a ton of cheese and eggs does not do much to reduce the global warming impact, since, as the article states, there’s wave of flatulence behind the meat wall.

    Cheers
