Meat is Heat: The Effects of Diet on Global Warming
Written By Michael Greger M.D. FACLM on December 5th, 2017

One of the most prestigious medical journals in the world
editorialized that climate change represents “the biggest global
health threat of the 21st century.” Currently, chronic diseases are by
far the leading cause of death. Might there be a way to combat both at
the same time? For example, riding our bikes instead of driving is a
win-win-win for the people, planet, and pocketbook. Are there similar
win-win situations when it comes to diet?

As I discuss in my video Diet and Climate Change: Cooking Up a Storm,
the foods that create the most greenhouse gases appear to be the same
foods that are contributing to many of our chronic diseases.
Researchers found that meat (including fish), eggs, and dairy had the
greatest negative environmental impact, whereas grains, beans, fruits,
and vegetables had the least impact. And not only did the foods with
the heaviest environmental impact tend to have lower nutritional
quality, but they also had a higher price per pound. So, avoiding them
gives us that triple win scenario. more

I'd suggest some birth control for our species might be in order.
That, or a good old fashioned plague. 7++ billions and counting,
and you're telling us we need to change our diet? Bears can't.

Brilliant.

Will you be volunteering to die soon?

How about your fuzzy little kitty?

The article was based upon a paper from a scientific journal. Bears
were not in the article.

"Anthopocentric" science is self-serving masturbation.... just my not-so-
humble opinion. Seems a bit out of line to tell us to "just eat beans"
so others can keep cranking out kids like this was the paleolithic.

YOU are a fucking NUTBAR!

Now LEARN something for a flipping change, you stupid old fart!

Not our fault

Are we, the fossil-fuel-burning public, partially responsible for this
recent warming trend? Almost assuredly not.

These small global temperature increases of the last 25 years and over
the last century are likely natural changes that the globe has seen many
times in the past.


Human kind has little or nothing to do with the recent temperature changes

William M. Gray
Colorado State University
This small warming is likely a result of the natural alterations in
global ocean currents which are driven by ocean salinity variations.
Ocean circulation variations are as yet little understood.

Human kind has little or nothing to do with the recent temperature
changes. We are not that influential.

There is a negative or complementary nature to human-induced greenhouse
gas increases in comparison with the dominant natural greenhouse gas of
water vapour and its cloud derivatives.

It has been assumed by the human-induced global warming advocates that
as anthropogenic greenhouse gases increase that water vapour and
upper-level cloudiness will also rise and lead to accelerated warming -
a positive feedback loop.

It is not the human-induced greenhouse gases themselves which cause
significant warming but the assumed extra water vapour and cloudiness
that some scientists hypothesise.

Negative feedback

The global general circulation models which simulate significant amounts
of human-induced warming are incorrectly structured to give this
positive feedback loop.

Their internal model assumptions are thus not realistic.

Carbon dioxide BBC
Mainstream opinion believes that pollution contributes to climate change
As human-induced greenhouse gases rise, global-averaged upper-level
atmospheric water vapour and thin cirrus should be expected to decrease
not increase.

Water vapour and cirrus cloudiness should be thought of as a negative
rather than a positive feedback to human-induced - or anthropogenic
greenhouse gas increases.

No significant human-induced greenhouse gas warming can occur with such
a negative feedback loop.
