Meat eaters are officially destroying the planet, report warns
Article is 5 months old, but I doubt much has changed.
I'm tempted to say "them, and everyone else", but that doesn't really address the topic. It is true that a meat-heavy diet takes more resources to produce than a vegetarian one. The other issue that comes up with high meat diets is that it is causing the creation of antibiotic resistant bugs. We're going to regret losing the effectiveness of antibiotics almost as much as global warming.
So all those Lycra-clad wrestlers are bulking up on tofu and mung-bean? I call BS.
soviet phage therapy and crispr-cas9 will save us
And more (old but still very valid):
UN urges global move to meat and dairy-free diet
I'm glad meat production is being scrutinised for many reasons and a vindication for veganism, but you know about us already
Here's a bit of data. It shows how much meat the average person in various countries used to consume and how much they consume now:
Meat consumption per capita
tbh it's all fucked anyway and all meat eating will do is slightly accelerate the great horror rushing towards us
yes, I've come to the unfortunate conclusion that its unlikely we'll be able to move fast enough. We would have to make drastic changes, very quickly, and they just don't happen that fast in real life. Still, gotta fight the good fight.
I am not.
It's nice that the current affairs forum has relaxed rules on this sort of thing.
It's very much a current topic, no? It's not like anything substantial would have changed in 20 weeks to alter the worrying points being raised.
It's all the fault of these Huguenot immigrants and their pernicious effect on our national cuisine!
Is it wrong that I'm sat here eating a BLT and couldn't give one single fuck?
There's no gif that can adequately admonish your sort.
I mean, LETTUCE for fuck's sake!!
I know, but the brown sauce kinda neutralised it.
Isn't someone making artificial meat now? As soon as they get going on a big scale hopefully they'll be able to produce artificial vegetables and fruit.
they're just shitting up the thread as usual, need to shut it down
I’ve never quite understood the whole lettuce going well with bacon thing.
Reminds me, have KFC sorted themselves out yet. Could murder zinger tower burger
If the bacon isn't crunchy it adds some crunch. Obviously if the lettuce is limp then everything is buggered.
Onions taste nicer and are crunchier. Lettuce is just pointless.
level of posts quickly descended to
There's a vegan post where someone said "bacon"?
Yes. Double down on it. Seems to be the trend
I could live without most meat and fish.
But I couldn't live without cheddar cheese or bacon.
One of my few joys in life is the taste of bacon...and cheese....not together although that can be lovely too.
I'd happily forego all other meat...and fish...and even vegetables if only to have bacon once a week.
And I'd go so far as to say that life would not be worth living without my beloved cheddar on brown soda bread.
It helps to have mayonnaise and tomato with them...between toast.
