The leading cause of global warming

According to an article in The Independent, the leading cause of global warming has been discovered: (hat tip: J. Wheaton)

"Meet the world's top destroyer of the environment. It is not the car, or the plane,or even George Bush: it is the cow."

"A United Nations report has identified the world's rapidly growing herds of cattle as the greatest threat to the climate, forests and wildlife. And they are blamed for a host of other environmental crimes, from acid rain to the introduction of alien species, from producing deserts to creating dead zones in the oceans, from poisoning rivers and drinking water to destroying coral reefs."

Please do your part to end global warming--grab a quarter-pounder at McDonalds today!

I'm surprised this story even made it to the surface, considering the power of "Big Cattle" and their stranglehold on world politics.

Seriously, why can't we all just come together and eat pork... the other white meat? It's delicious.
