Give up burgers and stop climate change!

Why do liberals hate science, and rely upon absurd exaggeration and hyperbole?
For loony lefty syndicated columnist David Sirota, it's all just another day at the office. Sirota made national news for his bizarre and bigoted hope that the Boston bomber would turn out to be "a white American."
Fresh off that fiasco, Sirota has turned his sights to changing the climate by changing America's diet. According to Sirota's May 2 column screeching about imminent "catastrophic climate change", "the fastest way to reduce climate change" simply "requires us all to eat fewer animal products." In cast that wasn't sufficiently clear, he added that "we are incinerating the planet and dooming future generations simply because too many of us like to eat cheeseburgers." Sirota's article on the left-wing site Salon included a photo of what appeared to be a bacon cheeseburger with an egg on top of it.
"That's right; essentially, if every fourth time someone craved, say, beef, chicken or cow milk they instead opted for a veggie burger, a bean burrito or water, we have a chance to halt the emergency," he added.
Sirito also claimed that "some conservatives will read this column and send me email smugly pledging to eat even more meat than they already do, just to make some incoherent point about freedom".
As opposed to Sirota's incoherent idiocy about eating a burger causing global warming! What if I ride my bike to get a burger, does that make it carbon-neutral?
Of course, the best news regarding pollution in decades is....fracking and the increased use of natural gas. Not the "bean burrito" kind!
