https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/nationa ... cientists/But now 11,000 people who might know one or two more facts than a bubble of politicians have confirmed it is, indeed, happening: the whole world is in the midst of a climate emergency.
And they believe the threats are accelerating faster than previously expected.
Pointing to their “moral obligation” to share knowledge of impending danger, scientists from 153 countries – Australia included – on Wednesday morning released a declaration of a climate crisis they said would lead to “untold suffering”.
They have called on governments to cut pollution, introduce carbon taxes and stop giving a helping hand to the fossil fuel industry.
Individuals and families are also told to take responsibility: regularly eating meat, and an obsession with cash and flash fashion, are among the factors scientists have flagged as contributing to the planet’s demise.
This “regularly eating meat” thing is mostly bullshit. Raising animals uses a lot of water—but it is all rainfall. Because of Mum’s dementia we eat mostly chicken and fish, the odd vegetarian meal (omelette + green salad) and to save money for my house that will continue for a few years. Cows belch methane, that can be reduced by science-enzymes, genetics. But everything we do each day emits GHGs.
Then the article says:
Bullshit. Pastures for cattle are not suitable for growing crops.free up agricultural lands for growing human food rather than livestock feed.
Concentrating on this bullshit will just make people ignore the rest of the declaration of Climate Emergency.
