Another slow-news day. Not even the tiny but noisy vegan woke minority got a look in. I bet they redouble their efforts in the coming weeks though.They just did an entire article on global warming on the 10 o’clock news, and all they talked about was burning fossil fuels!
No mention of animals or methane, of trees or cutting meat consumption.
Is the tide finally turning, or was it a momentary blip?
Cultivating? Won’t that release more CO2?I did. Politely pointed Roger Harrabin to all the stuff on here explaining that cows are the solution not the problem.
(don't think it will have made any difference tbh, more likely a momentary blip, but point being there's absolutely zero point in slagging these people off, they need cultivating)
It's interesting to also look at C02/km2, because while America emits a lot per capita it's a big country with a lot of wilderness to soak some back up. If we are interested in the really important figure which is net emissions then absortion capacity does count, just like with farming.But as a country emit twice the amount of the second most polluting nation on Earth, the United States of America.
Does context excuse the building of as many coal-fired power stations as they wish, because their emissions per head will still be lower than other countries? Surely that is just using the fact that a fifth of the world's population is Chinese?Thats like saying we produce 270 x the pollution of Fiji.
Per capita adds context.

.The following is a list of major countries or territories ranked by their fossil CO2 emissions per square kilometer in the year of 2017 (in tonnes of CO2), based on the latest database released by Global Carbon Project on 5 December 2018. For each nation or territory, the value of total fossil...www.careourearth.com
By this measure Singapore is the worst, we are 17 and USA ranks 37. Peru has the least emissions for the area of country.
I don’t know what snacks bbc staff have but I bet it’s not as working class as a rich tea biscuits. I bet there’s very few biscuits in the building. I reckon it’s all green tea, houmous and carrot sticks.....I think there's plenty of internal friction in BBC paradise. Lots of agendas and squabbling behind closed doors. For example the business team (who for some reason never cover farming) do a piece on how important it is to the economy to get airlines going again, shortly followed by the environment bunch releasing a piece saying the exact opposite and how flying must be further curtailed. I like to think there are plenty of death stares and snide remarks whenever the opposing groups cross paths, maybe the occasional rich tea biscuit flung in outrage
