Maybe they should give this medicine to cows.

It could make their meat more unhealthy as a side effect, thereby also helping to solve the overpopulation problem. Win-Win!

 

Actually the current plan is to try and geneticaly alter them so they fart less.

I almost never eat beef. I eat mostly chicken and fish, but there are a good number of meals where I don't eat meat at all.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S.

I've been vegetarian for about 16 years now. Not quite vegan however, as I still eat cheese on pizza.

Chicken is still bad for the enviroment... due to the resources it takes to grow.

The whole meat industry is nearly at 20% of manmade emmissions.  Which sounds like a lot when it comes to global warming, no?

Espiecally when considering that even once we develop clean energy technology a lot of poorer countries aren't likely to be given it.



We're all gamers who use tremendous amounts of electricity. We're all hypocrites.

Not me.  I think Global Warming isn't manmade... but a natural climate change.

I also follow NJ5's theory that the world is way overpopulated.

You aren't going to see me with 1 kid let alone 3.

 

 



I always wondered why the ending credits of Inconvenient truth (where they give tips to reduce GHE and increase efficiency) why they didn't mention anything about vegetarianism.

Off topic, When you buy leather goods, (shoes, belts, cars, strap-on harnests) are they from the same cows that serve as food or are we wasting their meat because leather cows aren't tasty and tasty cows make bad leather?
I'm trying to get away from leather, but even the Smart car I'm looking into has a leather sterring wheel.



I like meat...

Cause Al Gore eats meat... and doesn't want to be seen as anything but the ultimate ecological warrior.  (Of course he also wastes way more electricity then most people... but he buys carbon credits!  From himself....)

Leather mostly comes from butchered cows, old milk cows... and veal cows... which is the most valuable of leather.

Though i think it's more a case of not wanting to waste.

I think probably there are leather cows grown on the cheap for leather production, who's meat is sold.

Leather production produces a lot of pollution though i think.



The world is definitely overpopulated. I have regularly advocated that we kill off about 5-6 billion and leave around 100 million people left and start over. Kinda like hitting the reset button.
