Universal vegetarianism would result in similarly impressive reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. What’s more, the Dutch researchers found that worldwide vegetarianism or veganism would achieve these gains at a much lower cost than a purely energy-focused intervention involving carbon taxes and renewable energy technology. The upshot: Universal eschewal of meat wouldn’t single-handedly stave off global warming, but it would go a long way toward mitigating climate change."  #vegan   #climatechange   #emissions   #renewableenergy   #food   #sustainability

Airplane disasters are always terrible. Different from ground accidents, they almost certainly lead to the death of many, if not all passengers, because gravity, a lack of pressure in high altitudes, and the huge amounts of fuel everyone is sitting on are three huge risk accelerators when ...

Other names
I am the passenger.
The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn’t understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had. (Eric Schmidt)

Two wrongs don't make it right. But three left turns do. (Jim Hightower)

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. (Friedrich Nietzsche)

My process is random. I fight the urge to pre-visualize; I'm struck by the accidental image. I need to experience deeply what is here, right now. The camera enables me to vanish into moments before they are gone. (Andi Schreiber)

I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishment after I'm dead. (Kurt Vonnegut)

Bragging rights
I survived the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka.
