More Flatulence from the Global Politicizers

     Recent attacks on agriculture, especially meat production have focused on the "input-output" relationship in production.  By this I mean that calculations are being put forward that attempt to measure the output of meat production in terms of its use of water or energy or greenhouse gas producing inputs (and of course outputs, especially cattle flatulence). 

     When they focus on meat, most of the time these "studies" are driving toward implicating the U.S. as a disproportionate producer and consumer of meat and therefore a disproportionate contributor to global warming and a disproportionate user of global energy supplies etc.
