Are farts really aiding climate change?By Sj.Cliff
An Opposition Minister voiced his concerns over ‘smelly emissions’ last week, caused by Brits eating more beans than any country.
Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, spoke of his fears about the impact the gasses were having.
Climate change is always a hot topic. While we’re used to hearing about travel emissions and recycling, it’d seem farts are the new pressing issue.
His views seemed to be backed by climate change minister Lady Verma said it was an ‘important’ issue and urged the public to ‘moderate our behaviour’.
The methane produced by cows has already been discussed, but today, The House of Lords has raised the issue of the human diet and its effects on emissions.
So are farts really that big of a problem? Let us know what you think!
