Re: “Guest Opinion

Excellent article. All but for the same omission every individual and 'environmental' group makes when talking about climate change. All ignore the elephant in the room: livestock raising. Not one word about animal agriculture. Not one word about factory farms. And yet they are the single most responsible party for the emission of greenhouse gasses - more than all the cars, trucks, buses, airplanes and ships together in the world combined. More than all the jet fuel you, James Jordan, are talking about.

Yes, Confined Animal Feeding Operations produce 18 percent of the world's greenhouse gasses according to the United Nations. World Watch in Washington, DC states the true figure is a staggering 51 percent.

Yes, James Jordan: "We need to stop playing games with the issue of climate change. The situation is deadly serious." But I can't take you seriously until you face up to the meat industry.

Apparently you not afraid of Raytheon and Materion. But why then do you fear Cargill, Tyson Foods, and Smithfield Foods? There are 32 meat packing plants in Arizona. There are 63 beef cattle feedlots in Arizona. There are 920,000 cows in Arizona, all farting and shitting. That's where the greenhouse gas methane comes from and methane is up to 100 more potent than C02.

"We are at such a dire point in our natural history that we have no choice but to pursue radical (as in getting to the root of the problem) solutions, or we are going to lose everything. There is no time left for half measures and false solutions."

We have no choice than to pursue the radical solution of veganism.
