Daily Roundup: October 27, 2009

More Than Half: A World Bank study determined that greenhouse gases from the processes involved in raising animals for food account for 51 percent of human-caused emissions. ENN

Trendy Statement Untrue: Statisticians have officially disproved the recently popular claim that the planet is now cooling. San Francisco Chronicle

Speedy Slaughter:
Just a day after Montana’s wolf-hunting season started, the southern part of the state ended it because the number of wolves killed there surpassed the region’s quota. Victims of the hunt included three alpha wolves that were crucial to a study that’s currently underway. Los Angeles Times and Treehugger

Big Promise:
The E.U. offered to cut its member nations’ emissions between 80 and 95 percent by 2050, and from 20 to 30 percent by 2020 if a climate-change deal is reached in Copenhagen. The Guardian

Firing Up:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is suing the Yes Men group of actors and stuntmen for staging a fake news conference “announcing” that the chamber had changed its skeptical stance on global warming. The chamber is also using Google ads to raise money and awareness against “attacks” from “liberal left-wing extremist groups and their leftist allies.” New York Times and Huffington Post
