Celebrity chef Mario Batali, please stick to cooking

Batali, who appears that he doesn't miss too many meals (and I understand the same can be said about yours truly), by buying into the green philosophy has joined the Obama club of condescending know-it-alls who lecture us about what we should and shouldn't eat.

Listen up, America, but especially you folks in Wisconsin!

If you ate less meat and cheese, the world would be a much better place. That's the main theme of a new study released today by (INSERT GROAN HERE) The Environmental Working Group (EWG) called “Meat Eater’s Guide to Climate Change and Health.”

It's not just any old study. No, no, no. The EWG calls it "groundbreaking." Ooooooohhhhh!

Key findings of the report suggest that we all should eat less meat, cheese, pork, salmon and tuna.

Chicken, beans, lentils, and tofu? Load ‘em up!

Are you telling me Batali doesn’t cook with/eat his fair share of beef, cheese, pork and seafood? C’mon!

But there he is, talking up the new “groundbreaking” EWG study:

“The fact is, most people in the U.S. eat way more meat than is good for them or the planet, but even knowing this, the chances are little that we are all going to become vegetarians, much less vegan. Asking everyone to go vegetarian or vegan is not a realistic or attainable goal, but we can focus on a more plant-based diet and support the farmers who raise their animals humanely and sustainably. This is why I am such a big believer in the Meatless Monday Movement and the Environmental Working Group’s Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health.” 

Please. What channel is Emeril on?
