Save the Cows

“Enjoy your cheeseburgers and steaks when you fire up the grill this Fourth of July weekend, because they may not be available much longer. That’s because the climate fanatics have declared war on livestock. Turns out the biggest planet killers are apparently cows. That’s the only logical takeaway from a recent CNN headline that informs us that the ‘World’s first carbon tax on livestock will cost farmers $100 per cow.’ I don’t usually pay too much attention to looney-tune ideas from across the Atlantic, but this is the kind of craziness that migrates across the ocean to these shores. Denmark’s $96-a-cow tax is to be imposed ‘for the planet-heating emissions they generate.’ If you are wondering why cows are suddenly supervillains, you aren’t paying attention to the extremists running the environmental movement.” (07/02/24)
