“There may be loud voices from celebrities and activists proclaiming their ‘green’ agenda, but there are thousands of men and women across the country who actually live on the land and practice conservation of our natural resources every day,” Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer wrote recently.
“A recent Bloomberg editorial beckons Americans to ‘curb their appetite’ and ‘give up meat’ claiming livestock are the boogeyman of greenhouse gas emissions. But if you look at the facts, they tell a completely different story,” she wrote.
She added, “Livestock regenerate the land, allowing us to produce food on marginal surfaces and provide much needed sustainability to our global food system. Those ‘Meatless Mondays’ would only increase use of synthetic fertilizer and lead to higher rates of soil erosion.”
The senator concluded, “Our nation trusts a small percentage of our people with a sacred responsibility: feeding and nourishing the world. Let’s keep that trust in the hands of those who know best how meat gets to the family table and the positive role it plays in our lives.”
