New draft report-

http://www.newsdaily.com/stories/bre8bd0vv-us-climate-ipcc/

of note-

‘Carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere were the highest in 800,000 years, according to the draft report.

The draft also said that sea levels were likely to rise by between 29 and 82 centimeters by the end of the century - compared to 18-59 centimeters projected in the 2007 report.’

Since humans eat a lot of cows and pigs, aren’t the pigs and cows causing just as much, if not more global warming?

Do they include the meat industry as part of the calculation of human produced change?

Do cows cause more global warming than all our cars on earth? If so, maybe we should start breeding Eco Friendly cows that produce meat without producing methane and CO2 gases.. some kind of Meat that grows on a tree, or grows in a petri dish.

Sure Larry, bovine flatulence is definitely a factor.

Haven’t you heard all the jokes about the cow farts? Lots of methane there, or coming out of there I should say.
