Environmental Doublespeak – 17 November 2007
There are a series of TV programs that presume to be on the cutting
edge of dealing with ecological problems. Yet they avoid facing the
proverbial “eight hundred pound gorilla in the living room.” Yes, I’m
writing about the proven fact that the negative effect on our planet
of methane gas produced by animal agriculture far exceeds the effect
of gas emissions from all transportation combined.
In one program in which methane was mentioned it was to point out
that municipal dumps produce methane and that methane gas is 21 percent
more destructive in its effect than carbon dioxide. Yet not a word about
the deleterious effect of the ever-spreading cattle industry’s methane
production which, according to the United Nations, amounts to 18 percent
of all greenhouse gases!
In another segment, one that dealt with the ecological use of algae
to absorb carbon dioxide, the spokesperson mentioned that the by-product
could be used to feed cattle! Imagine! Going to all the trouble to
devise ways of saving the environment and reducing gas emissions, then
feeding the by-product to cattle, thereby promoting the worst gas
emission – methane!
When will people start telling the truth!?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
