They add net zero carbon to the environment they just help to recycle the same carbon products faster, endlessly.

At present, relative to food production, there is now the grossest exploitation of the non-humans by the methods of industrialization. It is the same with the land, which is being destroyed by the mono-culture of industrialized farming.

The "farming" of animals as food is a major contributor to global warming - from the transmission of methane gas into the atmosphere (a natural by-product of the "farmed" animals themselves) and otherwise through the use of fossil fuels in the industrialized production of animals as food.

Dependency on animal protein as food is also now beginning to be acknowledged as having a seriously negative effect on health.

Thus the human world is now being overwhelmed by its own waste and by the toxicity of what it is ingesting at every level, industrial to personal. That toxicity is at the root of the current world-situation - toxic energy sources and toxic food-sources.

Altogether, there are two now-global forms of dependency that must be gone beyond: dependency on fossil fuels and dependency on animal protein as food. Both of these dependencies have broad political, social, and economic implications, and both are associated with conglomerates of corporate power which wield a great deal of power and influence.

>The Green Wreckers who destroyed Australia's cheap reliable electricity are now targeting our cattle industry.

You're under attack from figments of your imagination AGAIN?

I notice you've not provided any evidence or your claim that Extinction Rebellion is even proposing this, let alone that they'd stand any chance of gaining public support.

And on what do you base your claim that "The same heat cannot be trapped twice"? Do you imagine trapping destroys it?

There's obviously something very unhealthy in the water that Daffy Duck and Aidan are drinking.

There's a place for grazing herd animals in nature! And for mine that is in ensuring the fuel load is kept under complete control. Every oxygen-breathing mammal adds CO2 to the atmosphere and grazing mammals do at times burb copious methane as well!

If woody weeds are a problem then intensively cell grazed goat herds will clean up pasture in three seasons.

Domesticated deer will provide a very tasty lean meat and convert more of their graze into protein. Minus the colesterol of beef or mutton. But, need to be kept out of woodlands and forest!

Camels will keep woody acacia under control!

I believe that properly managed cattle farms, that incorporate dung beetles, will be intensively gazed and finished in purpose-built feedlots. And those feedlots almost exclusively reliant on the ex-crush of oil-bearing native wisteria! And if that is the management paradigm. Outperform any other production example hands down!

If you would have a kitchen garden. Then coral your animals overnight in the area that is so designated!

If surface water is critical then dams need to be lined and covered and crops like sugerdrip, e.g. Need to be sown through moisture-retaining, biodegradable plasic. Ditto salt, frost and drought-resistant native wisteria!

Grow enough of the latter and you'll never need ever buy diesel again. Given the oil collected via a simple crush and toilet tissue filter operation, can go directly into your diesel tanks!

That said, protein is protein regardless of the source!

Yes Alan, the fires have got a lot worse since they chucked grazing cattle out of national parks.
