    Those figures look well off to me. Can you quote a source for them?

    Also, electric cars already work better than petrol ones, but that is another discussion. It is cow burps not farts.

    Edit: sorry didn't read your follow up post. Yes, the 40% figure for boilers is well off.

    Thanks GB. As mentioned I was looking at the issue as a whole rather than specifically emissions.

    However on that, the link you sent is just the US. Animal Agriculture accounts for a much larger percentage of all emissions (some studies have claimed up to 51% but I'm not sure this is the case). And then factor in land and water, electricity and fossil fuel usage, it is a huge problem, perhaps the biggest. Areas that have predominantly been more plant-based such as South and South-east Asia are now succumbing to the Western diet.

    Also, much like the tobacco industry previously, the meat and dairy industry spends an obscene amount of money lobbying for studies and reviews to be done within the industry itself to distort the truth. They are also given the biggest subsidies alongside pharma. Hence the mass panic in the industry now as they are progressively losing profit due to the demand for plant-based products.

    I wonder if Umunna might try and parachute into the Lib Dems leadership contest, seeing as they don't really have a wealth of candidates.

    Donald Trump has rowed back on his remarks that the NHS should form part of a future trade deal between the UK and US.

    The comment, made during his state visit to the UK, prompted a backlash from Conservative leadership candidates, Labour and trade unions.

    But on Wednesday, the US president told ITV's Good Morning Britain: "I don't see it being on the table."

    He added that the NHS was something he would "not consider part of trade".

    Trump won't be president by the time we're finally allowed to negotiate trade deals. Hopefully Bernie Saunders will be in charge by then
