Something smells rotten in the state of Denmark.

If anything proves that the global warming nonsense has gone too far, this is it.

Because the climate change gurus do not believe that all global warming is man-made, up to ten percent of those greenhouse gasses are created from the methane in cow flatulence (if that’s really the case my older brother is responsible for another ten percent).

The folks in Denmark are taxing red meat in the hopes that people will stop eating it.

As reported in the UK Independent:

In a press release, the ethics council said Denmark was under direct threat from climate change, and it was not enough to rely on the “ethical consumer” to ensure the country meets its UN commitments.

“The Danish way of life is far from climate-sustainable, and if we are to live up to the Paris Agreement target of keeping the global temperature rise ‘well’ below 2°C, it is necessary both to act quickly and involve food,” the council said.

Cattle alone account for some 10 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, while the production of food as a whole makes up between 19 and 29 per cent, the council said.

Danes were “ethically obliged” to change their eating habits, it said, adding that it is “unproblematic” to cut out beef and still enjoy a healthy and nutritious diet.
