CST: Where’s The Beef? Plus Green Sex Sins

Collapsing Science Today: Hmm, looks like another alarmist meme has bit the dust

In the past environmentalists, from Lord Stern to Sir Paul McCartney, have urged people to stop eating meat because the methane produced by cattle causes global warming.

However a new study found that cattle grazed on the grasslands of China actually reduce another greenhouse gas, nitrous oxide.

Authors of the paper, published in Nature, say the research does not mean that producing livestock to eat is good for the environment in all countries. However in certain circumstances, it can be better for global warming to let animals graze on grassland.

Now, time and time again, I have pointed out that Mankind does have an impact on global warming through agriculture. Matter of fact, the UN IPCC claims that agriculture is the #1 effect of man on the climate. I can’t disagree. All the farm animals produce copious amounts of methane, and those delicious buffalo tenders I get with a couple beers when I go out to watch the Giants games on Sundays do, as well. Plants have been shown to produce methane as they convert CO2 to Oxygen, too, as do those those vegans. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. What would the alarmists have us do, decrease food production (hint for the alarmists: a warmer climate produces more food)? Or, we could go with the more extreme climate alarmist thought, and reduce the number of humans.

Of course, now the alarmists will whine about all the NO2, and say we wouldn’t need all the methane from Bessie (who tastes wonderful with that Spicy Montreal seasoning, BTW, with a side of long grain wild rice and a nice ceasar salad) if people would just stop going to the dentist.

And, oh noes!!!!! Ten green sex sins that can sabotage your love life.

Sin: Toxic sex toys
Do play with toys — just make sure they’re safe and sustainable. Conventional toys, especially those made before 2000, are likely to contain phthalates, chemical plasticizers that are carcinogenic and particularly dangerous when used in warm, moist areas of the body. Do the “smell test” to determine if toys are safe. “New car smell” is a dead giveaway that a vibe or dildo isn’t one that you want in your night table drawer (or anywhere near you, for that matter).

Sin: Talking about toxins instead of talking dirty
There’s a time and a place for everything. Don’t be an environmental schoolmarm when you’re about to do the deed. Your lover doesn’t want to be lectured while naked (unless he or she is into that).
