W-T-Frrrrrrt. Norwegian Army combats global warming with “meatless Mondays”

As a final story for today, I want to share a Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot moment. As reported this evening on the Special Report with Brett Baier on Fox News, it seems the Norwegian Army has taken up the mission of combating climate change. In order to reduce certain, well, gases emitted into the atmosphere, the Norwegian Army will now have “meatless Mondays.”

Yes, that is correct, the once feared Land of the Vikings will now go vegetarian on Mondays in order to do its, hmm, fair, anti-flatulent share in taking a stand against global warming. I suppose this means beans are off the menu as well.

Of course this move has been applauded by all the misguided progressive socialists who truly believe a reduction in human gases will cool the globe. Can you just imagine what the Vikings of old — the character Ragnar Lothbruck comes to mind — would think?

This past summer my family and I were privileged and honored to enjoy a National Review summer cruise to Norway. As we ventured into the impeccable fjords I thought of the ruggedness and fierce nature of the Norsemen. During my duty assignment at Camp Lejeune NC, I even had the opportunity to travel to Norway and brief the staff of the 6th Norwegian Division.

And now to find out that they are banning consumption of meat in order to appease the junk science gods of global warming? Doggone, fellas, please rise up, remember your warrior heritage and chow down on some steak.

My biggest concern is that our Commander-in-Chief was watching Baier’s report and will issue an Executive Order directing something similar — don’t laugh. What say you, should the Norwegian Army forego meat on Mondays to combat climate change? Or is this about the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard?

This is about as stupid a liberal ploy as those ‘Silent Saturdays’ where attendees of children’s sporting events are forbidden from cheering their kids on from the sidelines. It lacks spirit and character. It takes the passion out of life. It’s for the panty-waist liberal mindset. Kill it before it takes root!

Carbs make you fart, not meat. Idiots

I think the original post is in reference to bovine flatulence. The reason so many environmental activists are vegetarians is because cattle and other livestock produce large amounts of methane (I live near a number of farms. 🙂

Lima Oscar Lima…Wonder why they didn’t ban beans, potatoes and onions. I didn’t know that meat makes you Foxtrot Alpha Romeo Tango.

It doesn’t. But it does make you happy eating it. This is why it is being done. Can’t have the inmates too happy.

Just wait unil they eat lots of broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, brussel sprouts, et al.

I get more gas from the veggies. My inlaws are Norskys.

Maybe if they cut back on the Nutella they could solve the gas problem!
Despite that, it was fun going to Norway while with II MEF.

Funny thing is, aren’t cabbage-like veggies and beans notorious for this “emission” as well?

This rant is a little off base. I would venture it has more to do with the immense gasses at factory farms. It’s stupid either way, but it’s most likely not about human gasses. Also, I’m a vegetarian and have been for many years. I think this idea that you need a big steak to be a “warrior man” or whatever is insulting. Really like you Allen, but the tone of this post is a bit off base. Going after the stupidity of combating global warming by not eating steak is great, but keep it on point!

You need a history lesson on Norwegian Warriors. And while you’re reading, grill a steak, the protein will be good for that big muscle that’s between your ears.

If progressives are really worried about emitting gasses,
why don’t they just stop speaking?

I guess I’ll provide balance by eating breakfast burritos, Bacon sandwiches for lunch and steak, pork and beans and boiled cabbage for dinner every Monday!!! Maybe a bowl of Chili for a snack!!!

Norwegians eat a lot of cabbage and green vegetables, deviled eggs and they love their beer. Don’t think meatless Mondays will make much difference in the atmosphere there.

You forgot the nasty herring and other fish they eat too. It’s a 24-7 stink fest.

Pickled herring? They’re not bad, it’s an acquired taste, like oysters. Now lefse, that’s another matter…

I think you guys got this wrong……this is just a nefarious plan to instill more aggression in the troops! The combination of vegetarian food in garrison and freeze-dried rations in the field, should be enough to get even the meekest of conscripts into a berserk rage at no time at all!

I think its the dumbest thing I’ve heard aside of lets give iran the power of nukes and Obummer care (or as they are calling it now The Affordable Care Act)! Pathetic!

Now I wasn’t aware that meat was one of the foods high on the list for causing gas.

If you eat red meat (beef) daily… you could generate your own power if hooked up properly… And nasty!!! Phew!

Sorry but I lost all respect for Norwegians when that “animal” went on the island retreat of children and killed 50+ of them and the parents did not draw and quarter the bastard!!!

Norway does all kinds of stupid $hit. They have a confused socialism. The people think that they get a tax break because they only have to pay half their taxes before Christmas but they have to pay that other half after Christmas.

got it backwards…its those of us who eat the problem vs those of you who eat the solution…..vegetarians are the cause of global warming…..lmao

I would think the Norwegians would welcome a little extra warmth.

Chief, what do you suggest we do about the Norwegian army, or the country in general? Should we fight them and invade, just like we did with Iraq? I hear they have a vast reserves of fossil fuels. Sign me up when you’re ready.
