Rice and beans anyone
According to a new report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the livestock sector generates more greenhouse gas emissions as measured in CO2 equivalent --18 percent--than transport. It is also a major source of land and water degradation."
That statement got a tremendous amount of traction until Frank Mitloehner, Ph.D., from the University of California, Davis said, "These statements are not accurate, yet their wide distribution through news media have put us on the wrong path toward solutions."
He looked the model created by the United Nations and clearly demonstrated that their researchers presented false information. Within hours of Mitloehner's announcement, Pierre Gerber, a policy officer with the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization and one of the primary investigators, told the BBC that he accepted Mitloehner's criticism.
"I must say honestly that he has a point--we factored in everything for meat emissions, and we didn't do the same thing with transport."
So I clearly see now that we not only have a plethora of individuals stacked all throughout the Obama administration with ties to HSUS but it goes much farther than that. The UN's environmental initiatives, led by Maurice Strong and Jan Hartke, are guiding the ship for HSUS and have been attempting to move people away from the consumption of milk, meat and eggs.
Incidentally, Strong resigned from the UN and moved to China while under scrutiny for a suspicious $1 million payment that appeared to be tied to UN's corrupt "oil for food" program.
Strong now serves as chairman of the China Carbon Corporation and vice-chairman of the Chicago Climate Exchange. He states that his colleague, the president of China Carbon Corporation, "pioneered the development of emissions trading by the United Nations."
So back to my original statement that HSUS is a bunch of "human haters." Think of it this way: If you always target food and energy production in the name of animal welfare or preserving endangered species or protecting the environment, who is it that will suffer if this group wins globally? Yes, it is mankind because HSUS is working to make it harder and more expensive than ever for human beings to be able to secure the essentials of life--food, fiber, fuel and pharmaceuticals.
Or perhaps HSUS is simply in cahoots with the Chinese government to finally cripple the United States at the core and return to their position as the world power! Rice and beans anyone?
