Once again I find myself compelled to respond to an omnivore hater. Now we are responsible for global warming! I will admit that the U.S. is a leader in the production of greenhouse gases, however, the EPA released its annual greenhouse-gas survey and reports that all agriculture in the country accounts for only 6 percent of the greenhouse gases and that livestock only accounts for about half of all agriculture.
Is there a chance that all that gas comes from the mouths and backsides of people too reliant on beans and cabbage for their sustenance? Hmmmm! It would seem that if we look deep enough and long enough we can all find facts to support our position.
But I wonder what would happen if indeed we did quit eating animals and all became weed eaters. We would, because of the huge population of hungry fat Americans, leave little food for the animals. They, of course, would then be forced to hunt down pasty white, weak, vitamin B-12 deficient vegetarians who wouldn't stand a chance. Soon most humans would be wiped from the continent. The animals wouldn't fare so well either eating prey with little nutritional value. Hmmm, again! I think I would rather eat meat than face extinction in the jaws of some crazy meat-eating rabbit.
