I know that you specified Human Made Climate Change, but I'll get this out of the way: The largest driver of climate, the earths temperatures,and changes to the climate is Solar Activity.

This does not take away a responsibility for a more sustainable agricultural model.

The population of the earth is growing, not shrinking. Barring a large depopulation that means that supporting this population means large scale agriculture - You could go with more non animal nutrition but it is less "nutrient dense", and would take more cultivated acres, more petro chemical fertilizer, etc. Which means more fertilizer run off, higher potential of chemicals getting into the aquafiers(sp) etc.

If you keep this kind of nonsense up people will start to believe that Crowdgather pays you to subvert creative ideas in this forum—an idea that I’ve tried to play-down whenever I get a PM to that effect. No, Mo is alright, he’s just a conservative Christian—you know how they are, I say.

OMG! Climate change is NOT caused by solar activity. Please just stop spouting the Foxx news party line. Please... for your own good.

Brian: I like the attempt at humor with your Faux News joke

Try to address confirm or deny:

1. Most of the Earth's heat comes from the Sun (True / False)

2 The energy radiating from the Sun is cyclical (True / False)

3 People can, and have for a long time observed solar activity and correlated it with climate/weather (aka Crazy BEN Franklin) (True / False)

4. Maunder and his Maunder Minimum was sponsored by the Weather Department at Fox News (True / False)

The information is out there and available -- although it's usually framed up as a significant cause -- not the top cause. But that's splitting hairs.

A quick Google search shows stories on CNN, New York Times, The Gaurdian, BBC, NBC News, CNBC about beef production and climate change.

I haven't seen it yet but there's a doc on the subject on Netflix and I saw Food Inc. on Netflix -- which is a pretty damning look at modern meat production.

I think there's a difference between suppressing a story and people just not paying attention.
