Little ba-lambs are killing the planet

It's going to be a big job, once our current bout of climate madness has passed, to pick out the dumbest and most idiotic claims and statements produced by it.
I'm still inclined to choose the incredibly naive, but insufferably well meaning, middle class woman featured on the front page of The Australian a few years back who was buying carbon credits for her cat's farts.
Can't recall if she was buying them for her own.
The "complete list of things caused by global warming" maintained by Numbers Watch will no doubt be a rich resource.
Tim Flannery will feature prominently, and even more so The Goracle.
This may get a guernsey too.
Roast lamb threatens the planet

GIVE up lamb roasts and save the planet. Government advisers are developing menus to combat climate change by cutting out "high carbon" food such as meat from sheep, whose burping poses a serious threat to the environment. Out will go kebabs, greenhouse tomatoes and alcohol. Instead, diners will be encouraged to consume more potatoes and seasonal vegetables, as well as pork and chicken, which generate fewer carbon emissions.
The rest at Greenie Watch, where Dr Ray comments "Tomatoes too! And don't mention booze! But Coca Cola and chocolate are OK. All of which shows what absurdities you end up with when you start from silly assumptions."
