fact is the food industry is for profit and they will do anything to make a extra buck unless you force them not to but they hold the cards hear force them and they can simply raise prices to the point where people starve
switching to vegan/bugs/any other food source won't change the root of the problem company's do not give a damm about the damage they do only the profit they make

Yeah, but you're talking about maximums. What would be the best number of people to have on the planet so that everything isn't running on the breaking edge all the time? What number provides us with the best quality of life, not just quantity? Some figure that gives us plenty of elbow room while still allowing people to find productive jobs and get medical care. Because, yes, we can stack people up like they did on slave ships, but that would be less than ideal.
The co-founder of Greenpeace did. See my other post. But besides bring stupid, it’s also fascist.

Damn, so they are taking away our income, cars, planes, freedom and now food. Jesus, when is someone on the left going to call out the absurdity?
Soy is actually supposed to be disruptive to the male hormone balance. Meantime, the whole meat sustainability thing is directly from Agenda 21 which is a control mechanism. The elites will always have that which they try to take from the masses. Ever wonder why they tell us not to have large homes and why we should limit fossil fuels while they have massive homes and fly private jets ? It’s so what I say and not what I do. I’m the Millenium Declaration, it states that meat eating is too affluent so they keep trying to convince us it’s bad for the climate and we must limit our intake. Also they want to eliminate cars and make us go on bike paths. It’s true. They want to eliminate single family homes and make everybody live in apartments or duplexes. There is a planning development called ICLEI for towns and cities and if you drive thru places which have adopted it (such as Bozeman for example), you can see how few large homes there are and how many duplexes and apartments there are.

We had a load of preaching at us in the UK around this a few weeks back.
The recommendation was reducing meat consumption to the equivalent of half a fish finger or a third of a rasher of bacon per day. Primarily due to the demand for a more westernised diet in terms of protein globally.
Referenced article in Lancet
I love a good ribeye, farm next door raises Hereford cattle that drink from the river and eat the grass living a pretty happy life. What’s wrong with that? Seems sustainable to me.
Got to be better than clearing acres of rainforest destroying biodiversity to grow more soy - poisoning the ground with pesticides and insecticides as you go.

Please, spare us the "No True Scotsman" fallacy. By some studies, as many as 90% of vegetarians cheat at least occasionally. Heck, many have dedicated "cheat days" when they allow themselves to eat meat.
Did you know there's a Wikipedia article on Adolf Hitler and vegetarianism ? He stopped eating meat somewhere around 1937-1938. He also didn't smoke or drink alcohol, both of which would have been very uncommon in his day.
"didn't align with my spirit."
Towards the end of his life, Adolf Hitler (1889–1945) followed a vegetarian diet. It is not clear when he adopted it, since some accounts of his dietary habits prior to the Second World War indicate that he consumed meat as late as 1937. By 1938, Hitler's public image as a vegetarian was already being fostered, and from 1942, he self-identified as a vegetarian. Personal accounts from people who knew Hitler and were familiar with his diet indicate that he did not consume meat as part of his diet during this period, with several contemporaneous witnesses—such as Albert Speer (in his memoirs, Inside the Third Reich)—noting that Hitler used vivid and gruesome descriptions of animal suffering and slaughter at the dinner table to try to dissuade his colleagues from eating meat. An examination of Hitler's remains carried out by French scientists in 2017 found no traces of meat fibre in the tartar on Hitler's teeth.

maybe when you learn what "left wing neo Marxist revisionist garbage" is and not some words you think you can throw out there to sound intelligent, we can talk
"You have an absolutely ridiculous and fake outlook on indigenous people."
