We use to put them in asylums and we had special coats for when a seizure grabbed them. Now we sail them to the UN to give speeches lecturing world leaders.

And we think THEY are crazy, when the people we should be worried about are the “Nurse Ratched’s” who turned the UN into a Cuckoos Nest to begin with.

“TARMAC. or Bitumin”
LOL yep.
Protestors can glue themselves to concrete and bitumen, using Cyanoacrylate. Probably the only product they use that does not have much fossil fuel as a source, except for the heat required to manufacture it of course.
I have suggested that the anti-Adani protestors should super-glue themselves to the Gregory Development Road (along which Adani trucks are travelling). Trouble is, much of it is dirt road. Can’t glue yerself to dirt. But wait – every so often there are creek crossovers that have concrete. (Some of these are lower than the view line from the truck cab.)

I’d say “hide glue” but if we can’t eat meat, we don’t get hide glue. Unless we pick up carrion. It’s environmentally friendly, and would give the protestors a way to “make a difference” during lulls in protesting, but I don’t see enough sincerity there to actually make it work. If only we had dedicated protestors……

Canola oil is indeed rapeseed oil. However, rapeseed oil has a slightly bitter taste, due to a certain amino acid. Food producers discovered a variety of rape that was grown in Canada, which had less of the bitter-tasting amino acid. That variety of oil was shipped in cans marked with an abreviation for “Canadian Oil, Low Acid”–Canola.

The development of Canola was a huge plant breeding undertaking which involved many people and institutions in Canada. They didn’t “discover” it, they made it. Sadly, the days of agricultural innovation in Canada are just a memory as our once proud network of agricultural research stations and university agriculture programs has been gutted by successive generations of urban based politicians who are fixated on urban lifestyle issues like recycling and global warming.

Plant-based eco garbage suffers the same problem as wind and solar—not enough land. Add up plants for food, cleaning products, clothing, etc and you understand why the ecoloons are dying to colonize Mars before the crazy is detected. If we can’t get to Mars, we shall return to filthy living, naked while eating those grass and twigs suggested in the video. Until the grass and twigs run out. Then things get really ugly.

The Walmart in North Scottsdale, Arizona is not to bad it a lot different that the one two miles from my house. The Scottsdale Walmart is well lite, has wide isle no clutter anywhere and a level of product you don’t see in most Walmarts. If you wander in a Walmart in a primary Hispanic area the product selection is also quite different. Walmart stocks and maintained it stores depend on the who they serve. The worst Walmart I ever been in was in Devils Lakes North Dakota it was a pit. The crazies one was the one in Williston, North Dakota at the start of this last oil boom, they generally did not get the product to the shelves, it was being brought off the pallets faster than they could get it on the shelves. By the way starting salary in that Walmart at that time was nearly twenty dollars and hour.

Roman Empire’s troops each marched with a pouch of raw wheat seeds to eat from as they went to fight. Their grain was not harvested, cleaned or delivered with any of the “these” conveniences in original post’s video.

If you germinate & sprout barley seed for 7 days it is 15.9% protein. This rise in protein content is relative to the sprouting seeds loss of carbohydrates from plant’s respiration. That sprouted seed will be about 83% water & look like “grass”.

As for area required: 1 square meter of 8 day old barley seedlings grown as succession crops in a year can produce 72 pounds in that year (this is above ground plus bellow ground growth combined). Wheat “grass” would be a similar crop, but yields would be lower than barley “grass” & wheat would use more water; however the germination rate of wheat seed tends to be higher.

One of the Chinese members of the family just clued me into a Chinese internet insult, White Left.

The term baizuo is related to the term shèngmǔ (圣母, 聖母, literally “holy mother”), a sarcastic reference to those whose political opinions are perceived as being guided by emotions or a hypocritical show of selflessness and empathy. link

It’s a derogatory Chinese neologism and political epithet used to refer to Western left-wing ideologies.

I’d like to see this guy’s take on what it takes to create the various fake meat products (e.g. Impossible Burger). The amount of processing and total energy needed to create and mash up the long list of ingredients has to be pretty significant. I read in one news article that the fake meat products have about 40 ingredients, some of which have other uses – I think one was also a paint thickener.

If someone wants to eat paint thickener and other chemicals I see no need to stop them, but don’t tell me it’s healthier than corn fed beef or pork when fake meat has just as much if not more saturated fat and less actual proteins and other nutrients. Especially when the vegan tribe have been assaulting some of my other dietary selections as being “processed food”.

Linseed oil is a paint “thinner” in the sense it slows paint setting up (drying when try to spread). It is derived from flax seed, which is quite a useful plant in several forms.

Impossible burger also uses a genetically modified yeast (GMO to the max) to make the hemoglobin that provides the pink ‘medium-well’ line inside.

To be fair though, a vegan diet could indeed involve making use of fossil fuel and yet STILL result in a much lower CO2 footprint than a livestock-based diet; right?

If so I’d say this is kind of attacking a straw man position.

Cattle do much of the processing internally themselves and their feed is usually grown “locally”. Also meat can usually be “harvested” and processed much more simply than grains.

That may indeed be true in many/most cases, Jim; I’ve not researched it enough to comment.

I was making a different point, which is that unless this guy is rebutting a vegan’s (or anyone’s) specific claim that a vegan diet results in ZERO emissions, he’s really just attacking a straw-man argument that I don’t think anyone’s made.

Not a big deal and I realize his main goal was humor, but I try to be consistent. When someone posted a snarky video aimed at skeptics which addressed only straw-man arguments that haven’t actually been made it isn’t that intellectually honest even, if it’s clever and funny.

So while we can laugh at this, we should also be honest/fair (IMHO).

Now this is according to the work presented by Dr Peter Ballerstedt, but he shows that carbon levels in soils that have ruminants grazings on them and other soils that use monocroppings are massively different with monocropping being more carbon deficient over time where as long as overgrazing is not practiced the soil condition including the depth of the carbon layer in the soil increases.

This would normally indicate that carbon is being sequestored by the grazing process rather than adding to the atmosphere and depleting the soil like plant farming is being shown to do.

January 12, 2020 9:34 am

You must do the legwork to show a vegan diet could result in a lower CO2 footprint before you can suggest this is a strawman argument. The problem will likely become what is the practical reality. A rancher raising his own cattle, grazing on scrubland, for personal consumption may have a substantially smaller footprint than his vegan neighbor who must buy his food from other regions (and his almond milk from California). At what point do you break-even?

You can always make that which is intrinsically impossible to appear better than what can be accomplished in reality. You cannot feed the world a vegan diet. Most vegans are just deluding themselves thinking they are making a difference.

Area Man

I’d agree if those were the arguments he was making, but instead all he’s doing is pointing out that a vegan diet requires use of fossil fuels, and I’m not aware of anyone having said they don’t.

Where would organic farms get the fertilizer for their vegan ingredient crops, if not for grass-fed beef, free-range chickens, and kitchen-scraps-fed pigs? Getting enough fertilizer requires a large number of manure-producers.

Organic farms require about half-again the land to grow the same quantity of food. Conversion means halving the amount of natural arable landscape not already under cultivation.

Overall, the disturbed nature footprint of a vegan population is probably larger than that of a population of industrial meat-eaters.

No , in livestock farming the animals do all the hard work for free , collecting , processing and digesting the plants to produce extremely concentrated protein and fat , (meat and milk) which are effortlessly harvested . Man can nearly live on meat and fat alone , unprocessed straight from the animal and in fact the Eskimos have done this for thousands of years eating among other things caribou liver, kelp, muktuk, and seal brain to obtain Vit.C
In contrast the vast amount of processing that many plant based foods go through and the gathering of these foods is so machinery and time consuming because of their relatively low density or nutrient value such as lettuce which is virtually devoid of calories .
