[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN guest host of At This Hour, Dana Bash pondered on Friday if "'swearing off meat completely" is necessary to save the planet from climate change as she hyped a CNN Special Report that would be airing later Friday night on the future of food, hosted by Bill Weir.
Weir joined Bash to preview the special entitled Eating Planet Earth: The Future of Your Food, to preview some of what he found. For Weir, changing the way we eat is necessary because, "there are about 1.4 billion cows on the planet now. If you put them all together, it’ll third behind the United States and China as the biggest emitter of climate-cooking pollution."
