I saw a troubling story this morning on Fox news. Apparently the burping of sheep is contributing to global warming gasses.
This is not a new assertion though it was a little bit troubling to see it on Fox news. The question is where are they going with this. I urge everyone to remember that everything starts out small. Ten to fifteen years ago no one would have considered gay marriage and now you are evil if you are against it. Now conservatives are looking at Civil Unions as a fall back position.
We all know that to progressives it is not enough to control their own lives; they must control yours. We also know that progressives are the Peta/ don't eat meat types. Don't think they will not use this argument to push the reduction of food producing herds. They are using global "climate change" to push so many agendas and this will be the new one.
The scientist that was on Fox news stated that these animals would not exist were it not for human consumptions. The implication there being that we should stop eating them and using their wool to save the environment. This is also designed to counter the anti-man made global warming defense that man produces fewer global warming gasses than animals. Here mankind is also blamed for the global warming gasses emitted by animals.
The other statement that he made near the end of the segment was that scientists agree that global climate change is probably worse that even the craziest predictions. The most disturbing thing about this was that even the "fair and balanced" Fox News provided no dissenting view whatsoever. Maybe it IS time for the fairness doctrine. JK
