About Goddamn time

September 7, 2008

A while back I made an observation that the much-vilified airline industry was responsible for far fewer greenhouse gas emissions than the global beef industry, yet no one was calling for a cut in beef consumption.

So now, a year and a half later, the UN is calling on people to reign in on their carne consumption.

I’m just waiting for our patriotic backlash against this call and stereotyping to begin because the UN official making the call is an Indian (most likely a Hindoo).

    Sustainable, grass-fed beef at the Cal Ave farmers market.

    Also, the guy who wrote Fast Food Nation says In N Out beef is better than the rest. Those are good burgers, Walter.

    How does “the nemesis of evil” feel about this? Isn’t he a big beef eater?

    By the way, the blog style guide calls for headlines to be lower-case except for the first word, proper nouns, and the name of the Almighty.

    And Kathy, you’re fooling yourself.

    Are you saying we should all be vegetarians? Or that I shouldn’t let my kids eat In-N-Out burgers?

    Bigdra, you need to read “Animal Vegetable Miracle.” Actually, everyone who eats should read it.
