Greenpeace fordert vermehrten Verzehr von Kangaroo-Fleisch um Global Warming zu bekämpfen

Unglaublich, das musste ich euch unbedingt zeigen! Das hier ist echt mal eine Meldung wert! Und glaubt mir, das ist jetzt kein Witz, das stand heute wirklich in der Zeitung!

MORE kangaroos should be slaughtered and eaten to help save the world from global warming, environmental activists say.

The controversial call to cut down on beef and serve more of the national symbol on our dinner plates follows a report on curbing greenhouse gas emissions damaging the planet. Greenpeace energy campaigner Mark Wakeham urged Aussies to substitute some red meat for roo to help reduce land clearing and the release of methane gas.

“It is one of the lifestyle changes we can make,” Mr Wakeham said.

“Changing our meat consumption habits is a small way to make an impact.”

The eat roo recommendation is contained in a report, Paths to a Low-Carbon Future, commissioned by Greenpeace and released today.

It also coincides with recent calls from climate change experts for people in rich countries to reduce red meat and switch to chicken and fish because land-clearing and burping and farting cattle and sheep were damaging the environment.

They said nearly a quarter of the planet’s greenhouse gases came from agriculture, which releases the potent heat-trapping gas methane.

Roughly three million kangaroos are killed and harvested for meat each year. They are shot with high-powered guns between the eyes at night.

Australians eat about a third of the 30 million kilograms of roo meat produced annually. The delicacy is exported to dozens of countries and is most popular in Germany, France and Belgium.

The Greenpeace report has renewed calls for Victoria to lift a ban on harvesting roos for food.

Kangaroo Industry Association of Australia spokesman John Kelly said roos invading farmers’ crops were already being illegally shot.

“They are being culled and left to rot,” Mr Kelly said.

Kangaroo meat sold in Victoria is imported from interstate.

Australia’s kangaroo population has halved to 25 million in the past five years as the drought has taken a toll on breeding and the animals’ food sources, Mr Kelly said.

Under a quota system, 10 to 12 per centcan be killed for the meat and leather industry. Aerial surveys estimate their numbers.

Today’s report by leading scientist Dr Mark Diesendorf, from the University of NSW, says greenhouse gas emissions need to be slashed by at least a third by 2020 to avoid a climate change catastrophe.

His recommendations include:

REDUCING beef consumption and increasing kangaroo meat production.

CUTTING gas and coal production.

HALTING land clearing and deforestation.

SHIFTING to renewable energy such as wind power and bioelectricity from crop residues.

“The world is currently on track to experience runaway global warming with average temperatures soon to exceed 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, Dr Diesendorf said.

“We face a catastrophe unless there is urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 30 per cent by 2020.”

A major report by the CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology released this month warned average temperatures will rise 1C by 2030 and could increase as much as 5C in Australia by 2070 unless global greenhouse emissions are cut dramatically.

Sorry ich war zu faul, das alles zu übersetzen. Aber ich bin sicher ihr werdet auch so verstehen, worum es geht! ;-D

    Es ist tatsächlich so, das Massentierhaltung den Treibhauseffekt vorantreibt, weil die so viel pupsen. Ja, ist so :-). Ein Grund mehr kein Fleisch zu essen. So wird auch die Massentierhaltung nicht mehr gebraucht. Aber was mit den vielen Hüpfer machen? Fangen, kastrireren, damit sie sich nicht mehr so stark vermehren? Es gibt wohl wirklich unglaublich viele?!

  2. Fudge   10. Oktober 2007 08:41

    @ Schneegespenst: Mir ist das Problem durchaus bewusst, doch ich finde es ziemlich lachhaft, dass mit diesem Vorschlag das Problem nur umgewälzt wird. Dann sollen sie halt die Massentierhaltung endlich mal reduzieren und die Preise für Fleisch von mir aus anheben! Man darf auch nicht vergessen, dass Roo in AUS nicht von vielen gerne gegessen wird. es wird immer noch als etwas merkwürdig angesehen es zu kaufen.

    Und mal im Ernst, ich weiss nicht, ob du das Buch, der Kobra-Effekt kennst, doch genau das wird hier passieren. Wenn jetzt viel mehr auf Roo umgestiegen wird, wird man beginnen diese zu züchten und in Farms zu halten. Somit hat man vielleicht ein Problem reduziert, doch ein anderes geschaffen.
    Hier sollten endlich mal gescheit Kats in die Autos gebaut werden. Man sollte sich dem Kyoto Protokoll anschließen, und richtige Schritte unternehmen, statt mit Halbheiten das Volk zu verblöden.

    Die armen Kangaroohs werden geopfert nur weil wir Menschen nicht umweltfreundlich leben können. Jetzt sind es auch noch Tiere am “Global Warming” Schuld???? Wir Menschen sind doch über alles soooooooooo erhaben!!!! *kotz, würg*

    Dann sollte man mich mitsamt meinen blauen “Pfurz”pillen auch erschießen, denn ich verpeste auch die Umwelt u. alle die fleischessenden Homosapiens, die nach dem Essen rülpsen u. pfurzen noch dazu!! *kopfschüttel*

    Da platzt mir wirklich die Hutschnur!!

  4. grenzgaengr   10. Oktober 2007 12:33

    hallo,

    durch netty bin ich zu deinem blog gekommen. ist ja wirklich spannend hier, ich werde das tagebuch gleich in meine blogrolls aufnehmen.

    in der sache stimme ich netty zu, es ist wirklich traurig. sagt ein vegetarier. ok, zu 99% !

    bestimmt werde ich noch oefters hier vorbeischauen ;-)

    herzliche gruesse,
    grenzgaenger

  5. Schneegespenst   10. Oktober 2007 15:54

    Du hast ja recht. Ich sehe es wie du. Deshalb sag ich ja. Weg mit der Massentierhaltung. Das ganze Gerede das zur Zeit um den Klimawandel grasiert ist Volksverdummung. Australien ist etwas zurückgeblieben was das Thema betrifft?! Verstehe ich dich da richtig?

  6. Kunterbunter   11. Oktober 2007 07:38

    Kann mich dir nur anschließen dass die Massentierhaltung beseitigt gehört.
    Hier in Österreich liegt da zwar auch noch manches im argen, aber im Vergleich zu Deutschland gibt es hier sehr viel mehr Bio-Fleisch zu kaufen. Grade in Supermärkten. Ist im wesentlichen auch nicht viel teurer und schmeckt vor allen Dingen viel, viel besser.

  7. azahar   11. Oktober 2007 09:15

    Natürlich gehört die Massentierhaltung abgeschafft, aber nicht an erster Stelle aus dem Grund des Klimaschutzes, sondern wegen dem Tierschutz!
    Ich finde das ist alles nur ein Ausweichmanöver um das wirkliche Kernproblem der Erderwärmung zu umgehen. So abgedruckt ist der Artikel vollkommen irreführend. Könnte man die Zeitung da nicht wegen absichtlicher und bewusster Falschinformation verklagen? ;-)

  8. azahar   11. Oktober 2007 09:16

    Hey, deine Uhr geht falsch! Hier ist es schon 10:15 ;-)

  9. Fudge   11. Oktober 2007 09:46

    @ grenzgaengr: Herzlich Willkommen! Nimm dir einen Keks, setz dich und mach es dir gemütlich. Viel Spaß hier, ich bin immer froh über neue Gesichter!
    Was heißt du bist 99% Vegetarier?

    @ Schneegespenst: Nicht zurückgeblieben… Aber die Tatsache, dass sich genau hier über diesem Land ein riesiges Ozonloch befindet, was man ja schon seit ewigen Zeiten weiss, sollte doch dazu anregen, Wirtschaft, Konsum, Verhalten, etc zu ändern. So langsam kommt Schwung in das Ganze und die Regierung gibt in TV Spots Tipps und Tricks was man zu Hause tun kann um carbon energy (mir fällt gerade das deutsche Wort nicht ein, lach) zu vermeiden/zu reduzieren. Doch ich frage mich, was macht die Industrie, was macht die Regierung (ausser TV Spots?)
    Das geilste was es hier nun gibt sind Eco-Flüge. Soll heißen, du kaufst einen Eco-Flug und das Geld, was dieser extra kostet im Vergleich zu einem normalen Flug, wird in die Initiative Go Green gesteckt *um carbon zu reduzieren*. Gleichzeitig, wird für dich ein Baum gepflanzt. :-) Was sagst du jetzt!? lach!

    @ Da hast du Recht, es schmeckt besser!

    @ azahar: Ich stimme dir voll und ganz zu. Auch was die Darstellung des Artikels betrifft. So wie es sich liest wird es ein wenig ins Lächerliche gezogen. Allerdings konnte ich auf der seite von Greenpeace nichts darüber finden.

    It does appear, however, that hypnosis can help a
    person achieve his or her weight loss goals. Vitamin B3 or also called as Niacin is important in weight loss because it is responsible for the regulation of thyroid hormones and also in sugar levels in the body.
    Hence, broccoli is a must-add ingredient in your vegetarian weight loss diet.
