Baby Formula Is Now Bad For ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

It’s always something with the Cult of Climastrology. They’re always coming up with new things to Blame to prop up their cult, and here’s the newest one (via Watts Up With That?)

Call to curb baby formula emissions

Urgent action must be taken to reduce the carbon footprint of baby formula and toddler milks, a specialised economist says.

Dr Julie Smith, who has studied the economics of infant feeding for over 20 years, says greenhouse gas emissions caused by milk formula production have contributed to global environmental damage.

“The last decade has seen a global boom in formula feeding but this takes the world backwards in the face of contemporary global environmental and population health challenges,” the Australian National University researcher said on Wednesday.

In a paper published in the International Breastfeeding Journal, Dr Smith argued much of the increase in emissions from formula manufacturing can be linked to the expanding toddler milk product market.

“We have got to reduce the manufacture and use of milk formula,” Dr Smith said.

“Australia, together with New Zealand, is a significant player in the region – especially with our exports and marketing of toddler milk to China.”

Of course, Warmists really do not like Other People having children to start. Regardless, these people are just nags who always want to force everyone else to comply with their pet peeves. And, with this, they might make it happen, at least in New Zealand, which would affect China

Climate change to steer all New Zealand government decisions from now on

A climate change “lens” will now be applied to all major decisions made by the government, New Zealand’s climate change minister has said, as floods and bushfires wreck havoc around the country in the first week of summer.

Minister James Shaw said cabinet “routinely” considers the effects of its decisions on human rights, the Treaty of Waitangi, rural communities, the disability community, and gender.

Now climate change will become a standard part of cabinet’s decision-making too, in a week in which the country has being battered by extreme weather events in both the North and South islands.

Will the NZ government Do Something about the baby formula? Time will tell.

    Teach has now placed New Zealand in the group of nations that are “lefties”

    Every Western country has their share of “leftist” activists. It pays a lot better than trying it in a communist country.

    They just want women’s boobs out more.

    Anyone think that an article published in the International Breastfeeding Journal wouldn’t have a bias toward breastfeeding?

    Of course, boobfeeding really is better for babies, but in an economy in which women are ‘encouraged’ to put their infants in day care and get back into the labor force, breastfeeding becomes more difficult. Women have to pump breast milk at home — or wherever — and store it, so the day care workers and babysitters can give it to the babies in bottles. The longer women stay away from their careers to have to breastfeed, the further behind they will fall on the career ladder, which will lead the left to demand more controls over businesses to address the ‘problem.’

    Teach will this baby good non issue determine whether you personally will choose to become a father ?
