It's an Environment Agency official expressing sympathy with a viewpoint, not a government diktat.

Come now,don't take these things so seriously. The article in the link is a classic example of a great deal being made of very little. One person expressed a view - perhaps a tad ill-considered. It's nothing to get steamed up about.

But if everyone went vegetarian, wouldn't they fart (interesting fart isn't in my spellchecker!) more, from all the fibre. Thus negating the benefit from reducing the number of cows and sheep.

We could feed the cows charcoal tablets, to reduce the problem. :)

It wasn't meant to come over that way. I pay very little heed to those type of views, as I suspect do most people, as they usually die a natural death very quickly. But, you do tend to find those type of people in positions of prominence. A classic case of engaging mouth before brain!

Eat as much beef as you can, you know you want to.

I work in a abattoir that deals with beef!
