Getting rid of beef cattle is a no-brainer. But if we're really serious about forestalling the coming thermageddon, we've got to take a serious look at our pets. Yes, dogs and cats are potent little methane machines. There are more pets in the world than beeves. I know it will be very hard, I love Mr. Jingles and Che (my lab) like children. If President Obama, Al Gore and 99.9% of scientists are right, it's only a matter of time until we must say farewell to these threats to our planet.

Heavenly Father gave us guidance back in 1833 in D%C 89
12 Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;
13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine.

The guidance was good for Tobacco, Strong Drink and Coffee so why do we over eat meat? It sounds to me like a win win for our health and the planet.
