Save The World - Eat a Kangaroo

While environmental activists worry about the polar bear, universally seen as the symbol of the Arctic (although polar bears show no sign of becoming extinct) - they are less concerned about Australia's wildlife symbol, the Kangaroo. In a newly released report, Greenpeace is advising red meat eaters that more kangaroos should be slaughtered and eaten, to save the world from global warming.

Cows and sheep burp and fart too much. The environmentalists worry about the methane produced by these herds of animals as well as carbon produced during the processing and shipping of these meats.

Kangaroo meat makes an excellent substitute, they advise. By law, a percentage of the kangaroo population can be killed for the meat and leather industry, but many are killed illegally when they invade crops on farmland.

Greenpeace also recommends that people switch to chicken and fish and away from red meat entirely.
