According to a new UN report, cows, not cars, trucks or my parents big SUV are the biggest threat to our environment. The report says that the emissions from cows account for 18% of greenhouse gasses that cause global warming — more than all other forms of transportation put together. In my opinion this means many things but the most important are that:
First, that I can be the proud owner of an SUV and not feel guilty about it. (Not that I did before.)
Second, that by being a proud meat-eater it means I’m helping protect the environment (more cow on my plate mean less alive emitting dangerous gasses).
