You know scientists have gone mad when they start suggesting we stop eating meat in order to prevent global warming - sorry guys but that just ain't going to happen. Nor are people going to cut carbon emissions in any meaningful way unless forced to do so.
Fortunately there is a very simple solution to Global Warming and, as a bi-product, most other social ills - just reduce the population. A cut of 60% -70% would do nicely. Just think - no global warming, lower unemployment, less crowded cities and roads, plenty of parking space.... Sounds like win-win to me. Before people start jumping up and down I'm talking about lowering birth rates not encouraging euthanasia or anything more drastic - however appealing!
