How do stupid people get in positions of power to make such idiotic statements?
Check it out:
People should eat fewer baked beans to reduce flatulence which can contribute to global warming, a minister suggested today.
Fears were raised about the impact of ‘smelly emissions’ caused by Brits eating more beans than any other country in the world.
Climate change minister Lady Verma said it was an ‘important’ issue and urged the public to ‘moderate our behaviour’.
Concerns have previously been raised about the effect of methane emissions from cows on global warming.
But in the House of Lords today a Labour peer raised questions about the impact of human diet on emmisions.
Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, voiced his fears about the ‘smelly emissions’.
Lord Simon said: ‘In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the largest production of baked beans and the largest consumption of baked beans in the world.’
