Global Eating?

I was listening on the news last night about how we are heading for a climate change disater.

Then it hit me. The answer is simple. Start taxing Beef. This may sound a bit farfetched, but let me explain. If you tax beef, demand will drop. Therefore, forests will stop being slashed and burned for land to allow cattle to grase in. Also, the reduced number of cattle will reduce the amount of green house gases produced due to cows *ahem* farting. Yes farting.

As for the fast food restaurants, they will be forced to raise their prices, meaning that less of us will eat in them. Therefore, we stop the obesity epidemic in its tracks. As usual, the comments are open for you to have your say.
