How do I put this politely?

"People will need to consider turning vegetarian if the world is to conquer climate change, according to a leading authority on global warming."

This is Lord Stern in The Times who tells us that "Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world's resources. A vegetarian diet is better."

There are times when even the most graphic of instructions, as to what Lord Stern can do, seem quite inadequate. This is a man who should have been put down at birth.
