Beef and greenhouse emissions
Letter in Crikeywikipedia, 2 May 2007:
- Animal Liberation committee member Geoff Russell writes: Re. Rudd's renewables. The Australian Greenhouse Office really should know better. Households contribute a lot more than 51.8 million tonnes to our Greenhouse emissions. For example, Australians typically eat about 1/3 of our 2 million tonnes of annual beef production. Lets conservatively this consumption at about 600,000 tonnes. The AGO estimates the Greenhouse emissions from beef production as 51.7 tonnes of emissions per tonne of carcase in its "End Use Allocation of Emissions Report". Therefore, the emissions due to beef consumption in Australia are about 31 megatonnes. Therefore, eliminating beef from the diet would save about four times more than the 8.2 megatonnes currently used to heat hot water. If Rudd really wants to reduce Greenhouse emissions he should set up a "Quit" line for red meat-eaters to help them kick the nasty habit.
