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

Posted On Oktober 10, 2007

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 cent can 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.

  5. Charissa   3. Juni 2023 09:21

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a
    large amount of work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write
    in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if
    you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Thank you!

    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, amazing blog!

  43. Demetria   5. Juni 2023 20:19

    When some one searches for his vital thing, so he/she desires to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.

  44. fontanero zaragoza   5. Juni 2023 20:59

    In this awesome scheme of things you actually get an A+ for hard work. Where you lost me personally was first on your specifics. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more correct here. Having said that, let me inform you exactly what did do the job. The article (parts of it) is actually really convincing and this is probably the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly see a jumps in logic you come up with, I am not sure of how you appear to unite the points which in turn produce the conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect the dots better.

  45. fontaneros profesionales madrid   6. Juni 2023 02:16

  47. Rosaura   6. Juni 2023 04:13

    hey there and thank you for your info – I’ve certainly picked up anything new from right here.
    I did however expertise several technical issues using this
    website, as I experienced to reload the site a lot of times
    previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web hosting
    is OK? Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google and could damage your quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and could look out for much more of your respective interesting content.
    Ensure that you update this again very soon.
