Cows cooking up storm

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: The recent storm and floods that hit Gisborne and surrounding areas is because New Zealand has too many cows?

Yes, that's what Greenpeace is claiming. The environment lobby, with a serial habit of blaming dairying for all the world's problems, wants the Government to put an end to intensive industrial dairying.

If you're wondering how your cows were responsible for the recent Gisborne floods, Greenpeace has this explanation: "New Zealand's dependence on synthetic nitrogen fertiliser and too many cows is cooking the climate, and that is leading to climate floods like the one now impacting the people of Gisborne."
