A Japanese study has apparently discovered that eating a steak is far worse for global warming than driving your car non-stop for three hours.
That's right. When the scientists at the National Institute of Livestock and Grassland Science in Tsukuba added up all the factors, they decided that being a vegetarian is better for Earth than being a commuter.
One-third of what makes beef bad for the ozone layer is the methane in cow farts, but the bigger problem is the energy burned up by producing and hauling cattle feed.
Why didn't Al Gore tell us this? Is in an inconvenient truth that he loves his hamburgers? And what about pork or chicken? I bet this study was paid for by that insurgent cow who vandalizes Chick-Fil-A billboards.
I don't want the world to stew in its own juices, so I'll give up my car before I give up eating steak. (Hey, maybe we can find a way to harness the energy of cow farts and the world will be saved by a herd of heifers.)
