She was criticising intensive livestock systems more than anything........I love the way there is never a distinction between farmed livestock and wildlife.
Do livestock species not deserve a place on this planet? Should every other species be made extinct because they are not human and are blamed on climate change. When in reality it is humans that are to blame more than any other species/all other species put together.
But in reality they want rid of all livestock farming, intensive or not. That doesn't mean turing them out to lead natural lives as that wouldn't stop climate change. The sheep and cows would still produce methane and the pigs would destroy all their veg and cereal crops.She was criticising intensive livestock systems more than anything........
The big white elephant in the room is that there are to many people on the planet and we consume too much rubbish in the way of resources on pointless crap to make our lives happy and meaningful.
If we halved the population, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in now.
Now where did I leave that that virus.
I thought these vegan headbangers had fudged off since this Covid crap....it’s been bliss not hearing about them for 6 months
I have high hopes for antibiotic resistance.Totally hit the nail on the head. There are around 2 billion people too many on the planet. How that is resolved is way beyond my pay grade, but if we are to have a sustainable future, some difficult decisions are going to need to be made.......but won't!
I've come to the conclusion that just because it's outdoor, it doesn't mean it's any less intensive. AG Street's description of milking at a bale pushed me in that direction.Anyone smugly thinking that they're beyond criticism because they produce livestock extensively (as an outdoor pig breeder I might think this) should think again. These people want to end all livestock production. We meat producers need to stand together to defend those in the first line of fire, or you will be next.

You're right that it's in our financial interest to push back, even if they aren't coming for us directly. I'm not sure what arguments to use though. It may be that we just have to keep repeating our own (positive) half-truths, and do it louder than they do with their negative half-truths.
I dunno. There's a great deal wrong with the way food production is set up right now. Not sure if there's a system out there with a lower aggregate value of wrongness though, but I'm fairly certain that a system without livestock would be worse overall than where we are now.
telling half the story on emissions
so does the oil industry take carbon out of the atmosphere ?
But if someone had stood next to her and picked up the gaping holes in what she was saying would they have been listened to
