AGW Today: Stop Eating, You’re Lighting The Earth On Fire!

Alternate title: it’s not about the 2010 midterm elections. Every person emits 2 tons of carbon dioxide a year through eating: Study

A new study has shown that every person emits the equivalent of approximately two tonnes of carbon dioxide a year from the time food is produced to when the human body excretes it, representing more than 20pc of total yearly emissions.

“Food in Spain produces emissions of around two tonnes of carbon dioxide per person and per year (more than 20 pc of total emissions per person and per year) and consumes 20 gigajoules of primary energy,” main author of the study and researcher at the UAL Ivan Munoz told SINC.

The study analyses the relationship of the food production and consumption chain with global warming and the acidification and eutrophication (excess of nutrients) of the environment, taking what a person in Spain ate in 2005 (881 kilograms) as a reference.

So, you just need to stop eating. And not breed. And, just die already. That’s not the conclusion of the paper, of course, yet, that is the thought that will flow through the liquefied brains of many climate alarmists, who never seem to take their own advice.

The researchers have also estimated the CO2 and methane produced by the human metabolism and the energy consumption associated to aspects such as using toilet paper, soap and basin water, together with the treatment of sewage at treatment stations.

And then they came after our TP and soap, and we were all like the big city French.


A kilometre-long piece of cloth with ‘Go Green’ messages, written over it by luminaries including the Bachchans and Kapil Dev, is now travelling from the North Pole to the South Pole inspiring children across the globe.

NRI fashion designer Satish Sikha has stitched hundreds of messages, each written on a yard-long eco-fabric advocating efforts to save the environment from global warming and climate change, to make a single piece of cloth.

Yeah, that should stop globull warming. Yet another meaningless gesture designed to “bring awareness.” Hey, alarmist, how about actually changing your lifestyle, and practicing what you preach? Oh, BTW, I wonder how that banner is traveling around the world? Somehow, I doubt it involves anything so mundane as walking.
