Greenhouse gas[edit]

Chidgk1 - is your recent addition ideally worded? I've got a couple of slight concerns. First, we're saying that it's the plant that emits most gases. Would it not be more accurate to say that its production produces more than for any other plant? I also interpret that source as indicating that this is in total, rather than per unit weight or per calorie or whatever. More people grow and eat rice than wheat, one would expect the emissions from production to be higher. We should be clear on this point (perhaps by going to the Xu et al paper that the Guardian is using as a source.) Girth Summit (blether) 12:38, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

Girth Summit Yes you are right we need to be clear. Ah I thought I could only see Xu abstract but it seems the whole thing is public - taking a look and hope to cite it directly if you don't first. I doubt any more words should be added to the lead otherwise it would be undue weight, but feel free to clarify the body as my text is probably not the best.Chidgk1 (talk) 13:40, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
Girth Summit Cited Xu et al and attempted to be clear - no doubt you or others can improve further. Chidgk1 (talk) 14:00, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for being so amenable. I've tweaked the wording slightly, feel free to fiddle if you think I've gone too far. Cheers Girth Summit (blether) 19:17, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

 Done - it was deleted as vague and unnecessary. Zefr (talk) 19:20, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Please add a section on kinds of cooking rice[edit]

This article from Consumer Reports has 12 kinds of rice from a cooking perspective. It be the start of a useful new section. — Lentower (talk) 23:29, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
