Are other low carbers as concerned as I am about this new message that you should reduce your meat consumption to reduce global warming? The head of the UN panel on climate made this point recently and it has been all over the web:
"But if we're honest, less meat is also good for the health, and would also at the same time reduce emissions of greenhouse gases."
Oh dear. The author of the article has obviously never been exposed to any of the compelling evidence that meat IS an important part of the diet for most people and is just parrotting the usual 'meat is full of fat which makes it dangerous for our hearts' misinformation.
Well, actually, if we made everyone go vegetarian that probably would be a good way to save the planet - by killing off most of the population. But I'm sure that's not the effect of eating less meat that he is envisaging.
If only the climate change people, when proposing changes that affect people's diet and therefore their health, would talk to the paleo diet people first!
