Humans Are Meatware

Published by at 7:48 am under All General Discussions,Global Warming

Being a systems engineer I think in terms of Hardware and Software, and the often forgotten Meatware – the human operator. Its a bit of a sick engineer joke (not meant to disparage), but I never claimed to be a guiding beacon of morality.

Anyway, I bring this history up as a way to introduce another Stupid Anthropogenic Warming Alarmist Trick (SA-WAT?):

In an interview with The Times, Lord Stern of Brentford said: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.”

Direct emissions of methane from cows and pigs is a significant source of greenhouse gases. Methane is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a global warming gas.

Well, at least someone finally admitted that animals, by the simple act of  being alive, are a major producer of gases some believe can cause a green house effect (yet to be proven folks, just a hypothesis at the moment). The thing to take away from this as these alarmists go after those filthy exhaling (CO2) and farting (Methane) animals, humans are naturally on the list.

The dirty little mathematical secret the alarmists don’t want to admit is that in order to reach their proposed levels of CO2 emissions we would have to cut the world’s population probably in half and turn into Luddites (those who shun modern technology).

We are, after all, made up of ‘meat’.

    Don’t discount this being their plan. That’s more of a reason than “a woman’s choice” for killing babies. What was the count again? 40 million babies aborted since 1973? They have come out and flatly told us that the human population should be cut down. Goodness knows what they plan for animals, Alf and Peta aside.

    I think comments from the AGW community do more to damage their credibility then the actual facts. Most people do not dig through the numbers like you and crosspatch and may not understand them, but they do recognize idiocy like this statements promote. Add those the dire predictions of Brown (50 days left until the point of no return), Prince Charles and population controlers, the jokers who swear off having babies and those who say we will be able to do Acapulco cliff diving from the Empire State building into 5th Avenue. When people hear unreasonable statements like these they begin to question the reality of the facts that such statements represent.

    Not criticizing the numbers but I think they are not the only thing affecting the way people perceive AGW.

    I thought the plan was to cut the human population by 90% with
    the remaining few inheriting all the wealth.

    At least that’s how I understand the Bilderberg plan.

    Our Gordon Brown got too excited too early on and started talking
    about a “new world order”. Oops, he’s being de-elected next year.

    One thing I found curious about the Obama visit to Mexico.
    “Swine Flu” broke out as he visited and one of the guys Obama shook hands
    with was taken ill a day or so after Obama left Mexico at which point his
    aides promptly guaranteed the world Obama didn’t have the flu.

    Now I’m not saying it was too short for the incubation and I’m not saying
    Obama already had the inoculation and I’m not saying there is a
    distinct shortage of sick pigs. I’m just saying it’s pretty curious.

    In 1988, … Dr. Koop announced that the American diet was a problem of “comparable” magnitude, chiefly because of the high-fat foods that were causing coronary heart disease and other deadly ailments.

    Dr. Koop was expressing the consensus. He, like the architects of the federal “food pyramid” telling Americans what to eat, went wrong by listening to everyone else. He was caught in what social scientists call a cascade.

    The recent history of consensuses is pretty bad .. global cooling in 1975, high-fat foods will kill you in 1988, WMD in Iraq in 2003, and today, AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming). Everyone knew they were true, but no one could actually prove it conclusively. There was, and still is, no hard science to back up these claims, but everyone knows, or at least knew, them to be true.
