Burger King Goes Climate Cult On Cow Emissions

Just, just, just shut up and serve burgers. That’s your job. Serve fast food.

Burger King addresses climate change by changing cows’ diets, reducing cow farts

Burger King is staging an intervention with its cows.

The chain has rebalanced the diet of some of the cows by adding lemon grass in a bid to limit bovine contributions to climate change. By tweaking their diet, Burger King said Tuesday that it believes it can reduce a cow’s daily methane emissions by about 33%.

Cows emit methane as a by-product of their digestion, and that has become a potential public relations hurdle for major burger chains.

Greenhouse gas emissions from the agriculture sector made up 9.9% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Of that amount, methane emissions from livestock (called enteric fermentation) comprised more than a quarter of the emissions from the agriculture sector.

With an over-the-top social media campaign that teeters between vulgarity and science (sprinkled with more vulgarity), Burger King is banking on the heightened awareness of climate change and its responsibility to limit its own role.

No, really

What about all the chickens used? The gas grills (supposedly) used to make the burgers? All the energy consumption from the microwaves and fryers? All the foods that are fried? How about all the road miles to ship the foods?

In fairness, methane is problematic. I’ve said and written this many, many times. CO2 is a joke, but, there is concern with other GHGs such as methane, hence why I never say that the current warm period is solely caused by nature. The climate virtue signaling on this is amazing, though. As that’s all it is. Changing the diet of cows is a drop in the bucket as to BK’s operations.

    I wonder what the carbon footprint is of all the fires set by the far left?

    What about all those termites?

      Termites would be relevant if they digested fossil fuels.

        In that you don’t digest fossil fuels, doesn’t that mean that you are irrelevant?

        All the left has is hate.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Not exactly, hate-boy. I generate more CO2 by burning fossil-fuels than do termites.

          All gitarcarver has is hate.

          In fact, right-wingers have only hate.

          It’s hate born of abject fear. Fear of being displaced. Fear of losing their unearned advantage. Fear of the other. Fear from their ignorance. Fear of truth.

          Hate is the fuel of the nuConnies.

            Let’s try and follow the logic here…….

            Termites are “irrelevant” because they don’t consume fossil fuels. (Of course, the wood products in homes that they eat require fossil fuels to be cut, milled, transported, installed, erected, etc.) But the standard that you made was that termites are irrelevant because the don’t digest fossil fuels.

            I simply asked that based on your own criteria, doesn’t that mean that you are irrelevant?

            Logically, you failed.

            Unable to deal with the logic, you decided to attack me as you always do. Despite your claim that you never attack or call people names unless they call you a name first, you decided that “hate-boy” would be a name you would call me.

            That’s your second failing of logic and hypocrisy.

            The third one is of course, that despite demanding that others lead a so called “carbon neutral life,” you admit to burning fossil fuels thus by your own statements, producing CO2.

            TSK. TSK.

            The more you replied, the deeper the hole you dug.

            It’s hate born of abject fear. Fear of being displaced. Fear of losing their unearned advantage. Fear of the other. Fear from their ignorance. Fear of truth.

            Project much? I don’t “fear” or even worry about such things. It is clear that not only do your actions show you as being illogical and a hypocrite, you project your hatred to others.

            It is probably because you have lots of hate to spare.

            After all, all the left has is hate.
