Oslo The Norwegian military said Tuesday it plans to put its troops on a vegetarian diet once a week in a bid to fight a new kind of enemy -- climate change.
The army said its new meatless Mondays are meant to cut its consumption of ecologically unfriendly foods whose production contributes heavily to global warming.
"It's a step to protect our climate. The idea is to serve food that's respectful of the environment," spokesman Eystein Kvarving told AFP.
The diet has already been introduced at one of Norway's main bases and will soon be rolled out to all units, including those serving overseas, said the army, estimating it would cut its meat consumption by 150 tonnes per year.
"It's not about saving money," said Kvarving. "It's about being more concerned for our climate, more ecologically friendly and also healthier."..

More AGW buttwipeism.
From The Onion, right?
there goes the methane level!
Lets the farting begin.
Muzzies are rubbing their hands with glee.
Hard to believe this was the land of Nordic warriors who held half the civilized world in their grip.
More climate silliness.
What’s next for these idiots - cap guns?
Now it’s all well and good to cite the Vikings, but that’s a heck of a long time ago. It’s the fact that these clowns forget that their country was invaded and occupied within the living memory of some of its citizens that ought to be disturbing when channel your military in a form of whiny performance art.
“From The Onion, right?”
We only wish it was. Some things are just so distressingly and stupendously ridiculous, they are no long subject to parody, and it is impossible to spin this into mere satire.
This is Bizarro World, an alternate universe that lies on the other side of a fun-house mirror, and what is even more catastrophic for humanity, these people are dead serious, as if this were the code of principles that applies to all physical and intangible aspects of that world.
Fine as long as they stay on that side of the mirror, but they keep wanting to come over on this side and transform things here too.
As long as they don’t fart in the direction to the East and make the Muslims mad.
Yes, it takes a real genius to figure out that Eric the Red should give up meat so that the ice won’t all melt in Norway. Someone should get a Nobel prize for something, I just don’t know what, absurdity maybe?
And in other news from Norway, the reindeer population is declining at regular 7 day intervals.
My understanding is that Vegans fart a lot more than meat eaters..... so all that air pollution is only being transferred from one source to another.
Looks like they will have to institute a draft if they don’t have one now.
Desertions soar in Norwegian army.
Yes, a draft in the barracks would certainly improve the air quality.
Kind of ironic that Norway’s economy is based on production of Nroth Sea oil. Will veggie day shave a millionth of a percent off Norway’s carbon footprint? I doubt it.
In addition to being overrun with muzzies, I sense today’s Norwegians don’t like Jews very much, either.
Won’t be shopping for parrots there anytime soon.
Correct. Its bean eaters vs meat eaters.
Beans beans the musical fruit........
“Global Warming” has never been about global warming.
In the name of “Global Warming” all kinds of mischief can be achieve.
I think the idea here is just to see how far they can push before there is blow back.
The climate of the earth may or may not be changing, I suspect it is since it has been changing for millions of years. What I do know, nothing man can or has done amounts to much beside what the earth itself does or for that matter the great engine in the sky, the sun.
If every man, woman and child were to vanish from Norway today, it would have no effect on climate change one way or the other. Having their military eat vegetarian one day a week would be laughable if it was not a sign of out of control environmentalism.
One day a week? If it is such a great idea why not seven days a week?
WE DISOWN YOU
1) I'd be surprised if it wasn't, at least in part, about saving money.
2) Norwegians are already concerned about the climate. The main concern is that its freezing cold.
3) Vegetarian food is not automatically healthier. This is a casual assertion that people like Kvarving make that needs to be challenged continously, otherwise it becomes "true" because everyone "knows" it is true.
Did you really have to use the phrase "blow back"?
“Norwegians are already concerned about the climate. The main concern is that its freezing cold.”
You are SO right! There is much evidence that we are entering a mini ice age.
I predict that restaurants just outside military bases will suddenly get a rush of business once a week. Even if they charge premium prices.
I would hate to be the guy issued with a flame thrower...
Gives new meaning to the word ..Draft
you will be able to smell them before they attack..
A great indicator of the loony-leftism now dominating Scandinavian society.
Much worse is their determination that it’s somehow racist and unfair to have a successful society made up of Norwegians.
To be cosmically “fair,” they must import millions of Muslims who HATE Norwegian society, and love to rape Norwegian girls.
just feed them lutefisk on that day and tell them it is vegetarian....;)
It sounds like it’s from “the Onion”, but no....I first came across this in The Independent, from the U.K., but that’s an unpostable source, so I shopped around for an outlet I could quote.
Exactly- I keep wishing the north sea wells would DRY UP!
They can then go back to eating Cod- and raiding
England in their Viking ships!—
Maybe that’s why they are getting their soldiers
use to veggies? LOL
The eco-nuts are insane.
You’re being redundant. :)
Drive off base for meat and blood pudding?
...and Tuesdays will be gun-free day on the battlefield. That should be good for further savings down the road.
`All prices in Norway are “premium”.’
But you receive a government subsidy if you agree to eat lutefisk?
And now they took away lutefisk!! O-M-G!!
Norway flaunting its ultra-PC virtue. The other Scandinavian countries will be jealous.
what I learned in High School...”ENERGY can be neither created or destroyed in an ordinary chemical change.”
So where is this build up of Energy coming from that will give us GLO-BULL warming?
“Whats next for these idiots - cap guns?”
SMOKELESS cap guns.
They should also ground all their aircraft, switch their navy back to sails only, move their troops and equipment by horse-drawn carriage, and equip all soldiers with lances, crossbows and swords. Not consuming fuel and gunpowder will have a far larger effect on the “climate change” than stuffing their soldiers full of veggies.
The army said its new meatless Mondays are meant to cut its consumption of ecologically unfriendly foods whose production contributes heavily to global warming. "It's a step to protect our climate.
