We all heard of global warming. Al Gore’s The Inconvenient Truth earned him an Oscar Award and Nobel Peace Prize, and international climate change talks have just been concluded in Bali. In my MBA study, I recently learned that beef production is a factor which contributes to global warming. Here is the excerpt of my text book:
Beef production. Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, is produced as a by-product of the digestion of some animals, including cows. Large-scale cattle ranching releases significant amounts of methane.
It looks like I should cut down on beef consumption. But I like Yoshinoya’s Beef Bowl. Now that’s the dilemma…
Beef - culprit for global warming?
