Let's be real. Plant based diets and eating chickens, eggs and dairy will save the planet...as the conversion rates for those are as much as 10X that of beef. Humans are the worst deal going as we must eat and use thousands of times the energy that our bodies would provide in food or fuel, etc.

Asinine is a good descriptor of people who attack the source, even when the veracity of the story is easily confirmed from other sources.

So f'n what? The source is as ridiculous as what some obscure professor from Sweden is babbling about.

Does any of this invalidate science, or is it just more red meat for the scientifically illiterate?

Don't answer, it's rhetorical.

People like this professor discredit climate change activism. And trying to deny that he even exists doesn't exactly boost your own credibility.

Several people have posted in this thread attacking the source of the story. What do you think is the purpose of that if not to cast doubt on whether this even happened?

I guess because this is the first time hearing about it. Doubt hed have much credibility. Some folks who work professionally are bound to say some asinine stuff.
