If I drive my electric car with its batteries charged by solar panels 12 miles to the butchers and back then eat a steak, I may as well drive 40 miles, in reverse, in a Challenger 2 tank (4 gallons to the mile) and buy some lentils.
I'm not a vegetarian, but I should be. My daughter is and I'm very proud of her.
Recently watched Cowspiracy and it's really, I mean really depressing even for an occasional meat eater like me.
It's horribly obvious that the mass rearing of farm animals is a huge problem, much much bigger than, as this film shows, even people in the environmental movement are willing to admit.
Suggesting people stop or even drastically reduce eating meat is clearly electoral suicide, dammit we are dumb.
Cowspiracy is a damning condemnation of Greenpeace, The Sierra Club and other but obviously, primarily the agri-business conglomerates have rather a lot to do with it.
Chop down forest, plant soya beans, feed soya to cattle, eat the meat.
Don't think about it. It is insane.
If you feel a bit glum and eat meat, don't watch this, it'll ruin your day.
