Yet another idiotic article proclaiming that eating meat is global warming climate cooling change. This really is a religious cult.
And this is where I say that these “experts” are full of bullshit, and have never once stepped foot onto a farm in their lives, much less understand what it takes to produce said vegan diet.
Ladies and Gentlemen, in order to produce vegan food, you need to farm incredible amounts of land. You have to first spray it to kill the native plants, so you’re applying lots and lots of herbicide. Then you have to fertilize it, so now you’re dumping more chemicals on the soil. Lots of phosphates. The run-off from that does amazing things to the local water sources. While your food crop is growing, you’re dumping more herbicide on the farm, but these are typically targeted at certain weeds. And during harvest, while the combines are chopping and slicing the “vegan” grains and crops, you’re slaughtering thousands of animals who have made a home in your fields.
Yeah. Read that again. You want to see what a slaughterhouse looks like, go check out the combines after they’ve harvested a wheat field. Careful you don’t get too close, because those wheat fields are typically sprayed with Roundup a couple days prior to the harvest so that the combines aren’t harvesting weeds with the wheat. Oh, you didn’t know that the farms doused their wheat with Glyphosate? It’s a common enough practice that people who actually study health and the human body are saying that when people have a “gluten allergy” what they’re actually allergic to is the massive amount of weed killer found on the wheat harvest. This is different from Ciliac disease.
So you’re dumping herbicide, fertilizer, more herbicide, and then killing all manner of animals in order to get your “vegan” diet. Gosh, that’s so earth friendly! And after you’ve essentially raped the soil in order to grow your vegan food, and the soil can’t produce anything else, would you like to know the best way to restore that soil?
You let it go fallow. And then you put ruminant animals on it. COWS. YOU LET COWS GRAZE ON IT TO RESTORE IT.
At the bottom of this so-called article is a blurb extolling the virtues of lab grown meat. Save the planet! Grow your burger in a petri dish! Just the idiocy of praising lab-grown meat instead of real cows makes my head hurt. Did any of these so called “journalists” bother to look up the energy consumption that growing meat in a lab requires?
As opposed to turning out a cow into a pasture. And then letting nature do it’s thing.
These people are arguing, unironically, that growing meat in a lab that requires massive amounts of energy to heat, light, sterilize, and operate is somehow saving the planet but allowing a cow to eat grass for a year or two is going to destroy the planet.
Remember, folks: If X is an unknown quantity, and a spurt is a drip of water under pressure, then an “expert” is an unknown drip under pressure. This entire article is garbage, and the so-called experts who made these pronouncements are either some of the dumbest people on earth, or they’re lying to you deliberately. My money is on the latter. Act accordingly.
