re: Your Meat Addiction is Destroying the Planet


quote:
I call total bull shite. A cow drinks 12 gallons of water a day .1.5 million gallons will last a cow 342 years. That is a very aged piece of beef. I'm sure the grain calc is equal bull shite.



To produce 1 pound of beef, the friendly neighborhood farmer will need 13 pounds of grain and an estimated 2,500 gallons of water. If a 1,000-pound cow yields 600 pounds of beef, that cow used 1.5 million gallons of water and 7,800 pounds of grain. So, on a basic level, farming at this scale is pretty inefficient, when you could effectively feed thousands of people with just the grain and water it takes to produce that one cow. It’s not that inefficient if you’re one farmer with a few cows and chickens (though it’s more expensive to raise animals that actually graze) and just your family to feed. But even when you’re as good as Tyson Foods is at maximizing profits, it’s a mathematically unsustainable equation.

Today, up to a third of earth’s landmass is used for grazing and growing crops. In the US, 70 percent of our grain goes to feeding livestock. This has led to a critical situation where demand is expected to far outweigh supply in the next 50 years.

Yeah, we need to let the LibTards have even MORE political power and MORE control over everything about our private lives.

THAT'S THE TICKET !

Damn! On the plus side, global warming will reduce the landmass, which will have a huge effect on grazing/feeding livestock. We will lose livestock, but we get to eat their grain. More water = more fish closer to where you live...everyone knows that fish don't have feelings, plus they taste good and PETA won't give us any shite for eating those soleless frickers.

bullshite! wasn't it a Nirvana music video where they showed a goldfish flopping out of water and PETA made a huge uproar about it?

Random question: are all PETA members vegan by default?

A growing consensus among scientists, doctors, environmentalists, and animal rights activists suggest that our current system of food — specifically meat — production is not sustainable

FALSE!!
This is like saying there i a consensus of scientists that say man is causing global warming. OH! WAIT! Now it's climate change. There are less than 2000 scientists that signed on to the UN document claiming that mans causes global warming.
There are almost 30,000 scientists refuting this claim. LINK /
Go to the link and look on the left hand side at all of the signers of the petition to the Kyoto agreement of 1997. The news does not cover this story. I think 30,000 scientists is far greater than 2,000.

The 2000 scientists and the Al Gore's that support them, are more vocal than the Majority. People are stupid and tend to believe the people that are making the most noise. I wish there was an IQ test, with a minimum score required, for registered voters.
