A UC Riverside study found that commercially cooked hamburgers cause more air pollution than diesel trucks.

The study, which focused on commercial charbroilers found in burger restaurants, said the equipment generates grease, smoke, water vapors and combustion products, which emit a large amount of particulate matter into the air.

They have not factored in the whole carbon footprint of the the burger. They forgot the cheese. Cheese is dairy, from COWS!!!! Cow farts are a known threat to the planet. Geez, These reaserchers are slipping

But it smells a whole lot better than a diesel truck.

Ok lets shut down all McDonalds, etc. No sense in providing an income to anyone. Lets all go broke.

That’s it. We need a new law outlawing burgers. But since this law won’t have much of a chance of passing, Obama will direct the EPA to issue an administrative directive outlawing, not only burgers, but also pastrami sandwiches.

I'd rather stand downwind of a burger joint than a diesel bus, and enjoy the smell wafting fragrance.

Surprised they didn’t target Chick-fil-A specifically.

And they forgot the “Equal to Smoking 2 Packs of cigarettes a day” analogy.

I knew that already - that’s why I don’t grill my trucks.

Moochelle Obama is probably working on this already ... if Nanny Bloomberg hasn’t already beat her to it.

Is there anything that normal humans (i.e. the ones who don’t have their heads up their butts) do that doesn’t “damage the planet”?

Why do we have food stamps if people eating destroys the planet? Seems to me that it would best if we starved the people who can’t work for their food.

Yup, how awesome; doubling down on the poor old Bos taurus via its meat, milk products and flatulence. The lies about CH4 aren’t as prevalent as the lies about CO2, but they are just as false.

Are Coca-Cola and Pepsi big libtard supporters?

I am amazed they are allowed to actual PURPOSELY PUT GREENHOUSE GAS INTO THEIR BEVERAGES!!!

How long we Big Cola be allowed to get away with this?

Carbonated Beverages account for over 42% of all the CO2 released in the atmosphere yearly, and over 300,000 metric tonnes per day. An estimated 50,000 deaths per year are directly related to that.

My statistics are 100% as accurate as the ‘hockey stick’ data graph, in that I made them up just now, but I ‘believe’ they are correct too.

Apparently someone feels that the burger industry isn't paying their "fair share".

Somewhere, right now, is cabal of ultra-wealthy folks saying, "Yeah! We want the whole damn place (planet) for ourselves!"
