"Another Inconvenient Truth"

   During class last week, we had discussed briefly the story about Wal-Mart Decade, explaining how truly big it is even in comparison with the other top retailers chains in the U.S. To change the subject from how much salaries for position at Wal-Mart associates may get and then discuss in shopping for organic and natural products for better life, and so forth. In addition, Simon, Cloudia and Syvin also shared their unique shopping experiences in different country or city individually.

   And we heard teacher Adam talked about the vegetarian diet solution concerning global warming. Actually, he follows a vegetarian diet not only for healthy life but for less pollution . I think, What is the link, the connection, between diet and global warming? I am wondering if it is true or not.
  
   So, after reading both of the article of "In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto" by Michael Pollen and a related report which the title is "Farm to Table, with Less Pollution" by The New York Times; therefore, I realized what teacher Adam said in class is the other inconvenient truth. Take a paragraph from the report for example,

"The trillions of farm animals around the world generate 18 percent of the emissions that are raising global temperatures, according to United Nations estimates, more even than from cars, buses and airplanes. "It remained the most problematic"

    By the way, a  great sales book named "The Mad Cowboy: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat", in this shocking and powerful book, Lyman uncovers the dangerous and potentially deadly practices of the cattle and dairy industry, including the same comments as what Adam told us in class last week. Mad Cow Disease!!!
