Well......that settles it.

I'm going to have to start walking everywhere I go, stop using all fossil fuels, eat only locally sourced vegetables and kill all the cows so they won't fart anymore.
No one wants you to walk anywhere. Your car is not the problem, in fact in this country most of the problem is industry.

Nothing wrong with eating in season when you can.

Cow farts are not as bad as their belches. But yes, we should all eat less red meat, if for our own health only.

If you arenít scared of CO2 why not put a bag over your head and try breathing it exclusively.

The reality is in chemistry the poison has always been in the dose. The difference in concentration of similar level is the difference between health and death for many chemicals.

What nonsense.

Rice is a starch that lacks enough vitamins and nutrients itself to be a sole sustaining food. Individuals who live on rice alone (your "nutritious rice) develop vit B6 defficiency and Beri-beri. US POWs in Japanese camps suffered this disease.

1. Rice is not the main source of said vitamins for those who consume rice

2. rice is a starch- much like western nations getting starch from potatoes and not many of thier vitamins, Asian countries use rice for starch. Believe it or not, they still eat meats and vegetables.

3. Increased Co2 levels have resulted in 20% increases in crop yields, far outweighing this presumed reduction in vitamins. Thus, those nations have far more rice than before.

4. There is no data regarding the methods or statistics for us to determine the validity of said study.

That's not a valid scientific analogy.

You control freaks remind me of the Aztecs that performed Human sacrifices to appease the Universe.

Droughts have occurred for thousands of years and they always had an impact on food supplies.

UN/IPCC latest summary for policymakers....

August 4, 2019

"A2.3. Satellite observations15 have shown vegetation greening16 over the last three decades in parts of Asia, Europe, South America, central North America, and southeast Australia. Causes of greening include combinations of an extended growing season, nitrogen deposition, CO2fertilisation17, and land management (high confidence). Vegetation browning18 has been observed in some regions including northern Eurasia, parts of North America, Central Asia and the Congo Basin, largely as a result of water stress (medium confidence). Globally, vegetation greening has occurred over a larger area than vegetation browning (high confidence). {2.2.3, Box 2.3, 2.2.4, 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.6.2, 5.2.2}"

Nope. To appease their gods - whose direct intervention in nature they (the priestly caste & government officials) felt was absolutely necessary so that the sun would shine, crops would grow, the seasons would progress, & so on.
