So you're only against the damaging effects of fossil fuels but not any other industry that is a major contributer to the same effects of which you
are so adamantly against. The way in which they produce the meat is grossly unnatural with an excessive amount of cows confined to one spot creating a
hot spot of methane gas, so much so that it can't be effeciently broken down by natural elements. Not to mention the kind of land companies need to
graze which is COMPLETELY damaging in its own right. I think it's your logic as a psuedo environmentalist or environmentally aware that is
questionable, not my own.
Jovi1... Come on, little guy. You act like there's an absence of rational thinking among the community if ever there was to come an end to the
industry.To end something this firmly established there would be a multitude of issues that would present themselves. And be it there would be burgers
for another year or so but after that the killing would end, saving the 100,000 head of cattle A DAY in America alone from there on from ever
being bred for the very same purpose. It wouldn't be an abrupt end but more likely a gradual one. I'm not saying it will be humane but it is a means
to an end. This is a little more heavy than "open the gates."
I don't even know why this is becoming a tense subject anyway. I don't think the meat industry will stop doing what it's doing anytime soon. Meat
is a staple in our diet because it's cheap, easy, and it "tastes good." We don't care what kind of detrimental effects it has on our health or our
environment, ignoring the facts of it deteriorating both, all because the taste of food. Well I'm glad we didn't cave to simple reasoning....
A number of environmental reasons < taste. Genius.
