My qestion is as follows; will you make the change, or even more important, are you even able to do something?
Are you able to live without food and products not manufactured within your closest perimeter?
The issue of the cattle itself emitting pollution is a problem (they fart too you know and methane is a very powerful green house-gas) but the real issue is the massive ammount of forest being cut down to provide feeding-grounds for cattle and in the south americas it's rainforest (our number one defense against increasing carbon dioxide).
This is a sore subject, especially in the U.S. Are you willing to give away your driving?
Light/General use of electricity:
Limit your time in front of the TV and computer. Limit your numbers of washing machine-sessions and don't even think about the dishwasher, do it by hand.
Are you prepared? Can you manage? Will you even survive?
If you say yes; why don't you do something right this moment then? Lazy? Poor?

I'm not convinced that global warming is a bad thing, nor caused by humans.

I'm with you on that one DSO. You should check out a documentary called "The Great Global Warming Swindle" (if you haven't already). There's some really great information on there.

Why should we stop it?
Some of us are looking forward to it.

Global Warming is nothing more than a control mechanism to enslave us even more than we are now. You will have to pay more taxes, which won't even make a shred of difference. Under new rules, Africa will be prevented from ever developing etc..
Honestly, greenhouse gases are NOT a problem. We should be more concerned with other forms of pollutions, such as PLASTICS, depleted uranium, hazardous materials, radioactive waste and so forth.
Oh, and you know those nice energy saving bulbs? The inside of one is the equivalent to a toxic waste dump! No joke.
