DEBATE. Thursday 17 november. I had just come in from our room was exquisite. Fed, mockat and cuddled on my cows and wished them a good evening.\\a few of them muade absent-mindedly to answer, while the other lay silent and idisslade. They looked happy out and I closed the ladugårdsdörren with joy in the heart. Joy to have such a fun and meaningful job where I, along with my cows, sheep produce both the food and the open landscape.
After a quick shower dråsade I'm down in the couch just in time for \\
I thought that the viewers deserve to know how it really is.\\nFå see the whole picture.\\nTanken struck me – how had I answered if I had been interviewed in the SVT?\\nJo, I had said:\\n”It is true that livestock produce methane, but it accounts for only five per cent of the total emissions of greenhouse gases in the world. However, the fossil sources for the entire 75 per cent of the emissions of greenhouse gases in the world, according to the UN's climate panel, the IPCC.”\\nJag had continued:\\n”Even if all the people in the whole world would stop eating food so we would still not reach the two-degree target. It is the emissions of carbon dioxide that needs to be reset, according to new research from the Chalmers university of technology.”\\sink had I strained the eyes of the viewers:\n”A trip to Thailand generates approximately 2.5 tons of greenhouse gases per person, according to the Royal Institute of technology, KTH. Yes, you heard right, per person”, I had said and continued:\\n”This is more than a whole year's supply of food for a swede gives rise to, according to the environmental protection agency. Think about it, when you go to Bangkok for christmas.”\\nMen that last had been for the bitter medicine and cut away, I thought while I slurpade in me last slug of coffee with milk.

Journalists, politicians and proffstyckare. An elite which has no apparent roots in the countryside.

Why is it okay to provide one of the world's most useful animal, wondering debater. The latest in the new york times got the cows blamed for high emissions of greenhouse gases.
