Mad cow disease causes global warming

“To hold global temperature increases to 2 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels deforestation must be cut to half by 2020…” —  so we are told by the the U.S.-based Commission on Climate and Tropical Forests (reported here).

If we believe some credible sources of information (and apply the half-and-half logic), a ‘4 degree rise’ in globally averaged gridded temperatures will create hell on earth, which can only mean that a ‘2 degree rise’ will create half that hell.

Why are we cutting down tropical forests at all then?

In the IPCC-cited Governing the world’s forests, Daniel Nepstad tells us (p.6):

In order to wind back on the lethal fallout of one social scare – mad cow disease,  we are now having to rely on another scare – catastrophic anthropogenic global warming, to take its firm grip on our societies.

So the fake concerns for mad cow disease led to the real problem of Amazon deforestation which causes fake concerns over catastrophic global warming and is now leading us toward the real ‘solutions’ of REDD and carbon trading.

    🙂 Further information: (from the same document)

    On the demand side, the outbreak of mad cow disease in Great Britain, Canada, and the U.S. has triggered an international beef shortage and a growing demand for open range, grass-fed cattle such as those produced in the Amazon. Abundant, cheap land, cheap labor, and improvements in agricultural technologies pushed Brazil to the top of the world’s beef exporting nations in 2003, displacing Australia. From 1999 through 2002, Brazil’s cattle herd expanded 15% (from 161 to 185 million head); 75% of this increase took place in the southeastern Amazon region, where the herd has expanded 9% annually

    Wrote this poem 2 – 3 days ago. Seems I might need to amend it :


    Man’s evil CO2 emissions
    pale into insignificance
    compared to all those gases
    emitted by South American termites,
    a by-product of digestive processes.

    So, to be truly “green”
    it seems we need to cut down
    ALL those rain forests
    forthwith, thus depriving them
    of their CO2 raw materials ….

    Good catch Shub! It is incredible that warmists put so much time and labour into thinking up new ways to obstruct science and mislead everyone.

    Your efforts are sincerely appreciated by the rest of us who need correct information but are unable to find it in the daily struggle to pay taxes.

    Thank you!
