3️⃣ Number of animals affected:

You could reduce quite a lot your carbon footprint by replacing all your beef and lamb with chicken and fish (big mammals emit far more CO₂ per kg of protein than poultry and fish). The problem is, then you would be indirectly responsible for many, many more individual animals raised in industrial farms and killed in slaughterhouses.

2️⃣ Carbon emissions:

Think you can stick to your steaks and omelettes and at the same time manage to significantly reduce your carbon footprint by “eating locally”? Actually, transport accounts for a very small fraction of carbon released in food production (be it plant- or animal-based).


“most food internationally comes by ship. And, actually shipping is very carbon efficient. You’re going to emit 10 to 20 times less CO₂ than trucks per kilometre and 50 times less than flying. Most of your soy or your avocados are nearly always coming by ship and shipping actually has a very, very small carbon footprint.”

1️⃣ Land usage:

Crops for human consumption make up only 23% of all agricultural land worldwide, and yet they provide 83% of all calories.

Plant-based calories (and proteins) are much more efficient and require way less land and water than meat and dairy.

And I thought we had hit rock bottom with those pardons last year… I really don’t understand how anyone can justify with a straight face the actions of our President; they’re blatant opportunism and selfishness, to say the least.

So we’re moving to a new, more spacious soon, and I want to have a political world map covering an entire wall. That’s been a desire of mine for a while.

Does anyone know a place online to order such a gigantic poster? Or, do you know where I could find a very high-res of the world that I can chop, print, and stick on the wall piece by piece?

(I live, and will continue to live, in the metropolitan area, .)
