So it is safe for me to assume that you place no value on personal freedoms? Isn't it a man's right to eat whatever he pleases regardless of nutritional value? What other freedoms do you believe should be restricted?

Maybe some people would claim that driving with high blood alcohol level is a constitutionally protected freedom, and so is the ability to snort coke. There are other that espouse tax evasion. There are perverts that would advocate indecent acts in public. Ad infinitum.
Do you have ANY concept of responsibility? I guess not.
I'm pretty big on free market capitalism & on a man's right to use his hard earned dollars to purchase whatever he wishes, including junk food, as long as that purchase doesn't infringe on the basic rights of others.
Science Confirms Enviroextremist Hypocrisy
If you need any evidence that environmentalism is a shallow fad indulged in by liberal elite phonies who are only interested in token gestures for themselves even while they demand draconian sacrifices for everyone else, the Left's own Guardian thoughtfully provides it.
According to Stewart Barr of Exeter University:
Green living is largely something of a myth. There is this middle class environmentalism where being green is part of the desired image. But another part of the desired image is to fly off skiing twice a year. And the carbon savings they make by not driving their kids to school will be obliterated by the pollution from their flights.
Barr and his fellow researchers found that "the longest and the most frequent flights were taken by those who were most aware of environmental issues." Sanctimonious extremists often go on trips to reward themselves for using pricey curlicue light bulbs or for tossing their champagne bottles in the recycling bin. Higher income was associated both with more trips and with more enviroextremism.
As Barr puts it:
The findings indicate that even those people who appear to be very committed to environmental action find it difficult to transfer these behaviors into more problematic contexts.
In other words, they're hypocrites. But in their defense, there is no need to actually sacrifice their own pleasures, since CO2 is not actually a threat to anyone. It's gestures that count — like voting for liberals who will cripple the economy on behalf of the polar bears.
Eating the deficient Western diet of high consumption of meat (dead and slaughtered animal flesh or carcass), dairy (liquid meat), refined grains (Elmer’s glue, in which the gluten in these grains breaks down into), starches (stiffening agent used by dry cleaners to make your clothes stiff), sugar (the white fetish), salt (crude oil extract), soda pop (bone and enamel depleter), beer (recreational embalming fluid), coffee (nervous system stimulant and drug), etc., creates excessive caustic acids (uric, carbonic, and lactic) that corrodes and excoriates the Pineal Gland tissue and inevitably results in calcification of the Pineal Gland. With a calcified Pineal Gland, one can praise God all day and still perform actions of Satan and the devil (as is done daily in America in general...).

I fail to see how eating cows and taking their milk could have any significant impact on GW... I call BS.

Uh, follower of Jesus Christ here. I place no faith or trust in any new age or Eastern religious movements or spiritual theories...

Ok firstly the population of the world could fit in the size of Texas, I don't the whole idea that were running out of room nonsense.
Secondly populations mass around population centers ie: cities, normally around large bodies of water.
Considering it's resemblance to the pine cone, after which it is named, it appears that numerous cultures/religions have revered the gland for thousands of years
