Speaking as a vegetarian

What the bloody buggery hell is Lord Stern on about with his 'give up meat to save the planet'?

People will need to turn vegetarian if the world is to conquer climate change, according to a leading authority on global warming.

In an interview with The Times, Lord Stern of Brentford said: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.”

Lord Stern: repulsive little hypocrite who wants to see you live in a cave

Actually, a vegetarian diet is not better and I say that as a vegetarian. You don't get as varied a diet and it takes much more of an effort to ensure that you get the nutrients you require, rather than just eating cheese on toast in your jims jams whilst watching Strictly Come Dancing.

I would imagine that if the bastard EU hadn't imposed so many laws which resulted in the closure of local abatoires then animals wouldn't be transported so far but that's not what this loon is getting at. He appears to hate animals so much that he wants to see them wiped from the face of the planet.
He predicted that people’s attitudes would evolve until meat eating became unacceptable. “I think it’s important that people think about what they are doing and that includes what they are eating,” he said. “I am 61 now and attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed radically since I was a student. People change their notion of what is responsible. They will increasingly ask about the carbon content of their food.”

Fuck Off Fuck Off Fuck Off.
Carbon Content? The only way I'm interested in knowing about the carbon content of my food is to find out if my father has once again dropped my veggie sausage in the bloody barbeque.
Lord Stern, who said that he was not a strict vegetarian himself, was speaking on the eve of an all-parliamentary debate on climate change. His remarks provoked anger from the meat industry.

Oh there's a surprise: someone in politics who is a complete fucking hypocrite.

There are bloggers much more dedicated than I to providing the details of just how Lord Stern has been earning his various honours. For me, it's just the madness that anyone with a position of responsibility can be quite such a cunt.

He's also forgotten, of course, that it's not just not meat which comes from cows. If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well and so Lord Stern really needs to lead by example and become a vegan.

Go on, then. You horrid little man!

I think there's a simple answer.

We should all just Eat our Greens.

I have to say Trixie that, 'had I a hand in it' - to coin a phrase, you most certainly would not be in your jim-jams on a Saturday night, eating cheese on toast and watching Strictly! Well, not for long anyway!

As Tim Worstall pointed out on his blog post regarding Lord Stern, if you get rid of meat, you get rid of animals, which means you get rid of manure, which means no organic farming, as organic farming relies on a mixed farming process, whereby manure from animals is returned to the ground to grow crops.

Does Lord Stern know ANYTHING about which he pontificates?

Having lived much of my life surrounded by vegetarians of various shisms I must object. Vegetarians are notorious fart machines and as such add an incredible amount of methane to our atmosphere.

If we are to tackle climate change we must reduce the production of this greenhouse gas by banning vegetarian lifestyles.

Unfortunately, like smokers, they are oblivious to the danger their habit forces on others, and the damage they are causing to the environment through their second hand gas. These folks are more to be pitied than scorned and need to be educated to understand the negative effects of their antisocial behaviour.

But like junkies they seek to project blame on anyone but themselves. They blame the cows: "fellow vegetarians are the problem not them". Pathetic I know but this is how the mind of the addict works - never accepting responsibility for their actions.

Tough love is called for - put them in a methane filled room and ask them to light a candle.
