When Obama engaged in a question and answer segment about cows and global warming with his former chef Sam Kass, the chef interrupted Obama to tell him that over the 10 years he had worked for him, he had cooked him “thousands of steaks”!
In his $3 million speech at the “Seeds & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan, Italy, on Tuesday, Obama wasted no time chastising Americans for how much food they wasted and how their eating habits were causing global warming.
He specifically pointed out that meat eaters were contributing to climate change because cows fart.
Obama complained that people don’t realize how much cows contribute to global pollution through the amount of methane gas they produce.
“As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were consuming more meat.
The former president shared his views about the growing threat during a conversation about food with his former chef Sam Kass at a food innovation summit in Milan.
“People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane,” Obama said, adding that “as people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”
The amount of cows, Obama explained, were contributing to global pollution, alluding to the amounts of methane gas emissions from cow herds.
During the conversation, Obama argued with Kass about how many steaks he had cooked him.
Kass said that he probably cooked “thousands of steaks” for the president, but Obama interrupted.
“I don’t think, thousands,” he protested.
“Well hundreds maybe,” Kass backtracked. “I’ve been cooking for you for 10 years.”
“What is true is that I’m not a vegetarian,” Obama admitted, adding that he “respected vegetarians” but continued to eat meat.
Believe it or not, there are about 950,000 species of insects. Insects fart. No one knows for sure how many species of animals exist on Earth. In fact, some 10,000 species of animals are discovered each year, with over one and a half million species already described. Animals fart. There are over 7 billion people in the world. People fart.
But it is them there cows that Obama is worried about. We know that cows fart more than many other animals. But still…
This argument is definitely one of the most insane used by those who have been taken in by the global warming hoax. It is just silly.
California’s Gov. Jerry Brown even signed legislation that regulates emissions from dairy cows! It is understood that most cows are complying, yet there are still a large number of cows in rebellion!
Bill Nye even produced a curious video claiming that global warming might be solved by genetically engineering livestock to produce less of the methane greenhouse gas farted.
Mythbuster Taylor Collins investigated the whole cow fart global warming hoax and he discovered…imagine this…that it was all based on faulty data:
The most frequent question I get asked when explaining how cows can save the planet is something like… “What about methane? Cows are gaseous animals and growing livestock herds increases the levels of ozone exploding gases and leads to global warming! You’re a nut.” Even my own father said something along these lines to me last week and that’s what prompted me to challenge Chris.
In short I learned that the “research” this notion was founded upon stinks! Similar to the faulty cholesterol and saturated fat research that shaped the Food and Drug Admirations dietary guidelines, the original study looked at unhealthy cows living in unhealthy environments.
Specifically this study was conducted on dairy cows that were force fed corn and living in their own feces (CAFO animals). Not only were these animals consuming a diet of poisonous gut exploding grain (which obliterated their intestinal bacteria and threw off their natural ability to digest food), but their feces eventually ended up being washed into a lagoon to become anaerobic.
The high concentration of methane gas production was a result of researchers taking measurements in an environmental death zone! Additionally, these poor cows were domesticated non-resilient animals bred to maximize their milk production for human consumption. Another disadvantage to effective digestion.
In other words, again, they were lying and manipulating data and Obama continues to use the false narrative!
