People will consider veganism on its own merits, form their own opinions, make their own choices. And choose bacon mostly.
Turkey bacon is made from turkeys, so isn't vegan bacon made from vegans?

Well, I did let my daughter bone the quails last night (after I showed her how) before I stuffed them with foie-gras pate, and also had her make the parmesan/cream sauce for the pasta, so nothing vegan there.

She also made a vegan salad (rocket and tomato)!

In short, I've started to delegate in my old age (plus, she's studying to be a cook, so the extra instruction and practice is useful)

One of my Facebook friends in Trieste is a butcher, so I can order what I want and it's ready when I arrive!

Lol its probably been answered but, just to appease yer trolling.

1980s Ozone layer ban of cfcs and other ozone destroying chemicals reduced the hole increasing, its still there and in places like Australia the lack of UV protection due to Ozone depletion causes higher levels of Skin carcinoma then any other country.

Acid rain that issue was recognized a long time before the 90s, but led to the introduction of unleaded petrol as one example.

Global warming, climate change are very real occurences as the result of human activity. We are seeing the effects every day.

Plastics have been building up in oceans and waterways for decades, so far microbeads (plastics) in cosmetics and paints and other products have been phased out. There is an area the size of Texas meters deep in plastics in the Pacific Ocean, its calculated that by 2050 there will be more plastic then fish in the worlds waterways.

Although what pattern do you see? I am truly curious.
In 1989 we were told we'd all be dead by now.

it is a disaster already, Loz1983. the sea is rising from global warming, more people live in deltas and by the sea in ever increasing populations! a major storm and flood will one day wipe out many. can you not see that?

The thing I like about most vegans is their balanced views and tendency to never ever preach...


But why don't you start your own thread instead of hijacking this one?

this is rather rude. global warming also comes from excessive meat and dairy consumption so its relevant.

They would no longer be classified as vegan but rather a humanitarian.

Re: Drowning in Plastic

To be fair to vegans, it is a fact that dairy production and cattle for beef is one of the largest global polluters. I think less is the key. Tom is well aware of how bad for the environment beef and dairy is, but it won’t stop him eating cheese or steak, and neither will I as long as I can help it, I just choose better quality less often.

And calling people who don't agree to your extreme dietary choice "caveman" is not?

Sure. But maybe there is something between excessive consumption and your equally extreme choice of life style?


We had a bunch of people who came on here with Vegan in their user name who after a few days got banned because they are frankly too annoying even for our low standards around here... so don't be one of them.

Re: Drowning in Plastic

Nobody is arguing that beef and dairy production has a climate impact. But this thread was about plastic. Specifically the microplastic that pollutes the ocean.


As long as vegetables are packed in as much plastic as the meat can we agree that the whole vegan topic can go to another thread. Because we are not talking about carbon emissions or footprint in general. If we did would I rather raise the point that Despacito has produced about as much carbon dioxide as 100.000 taxis https://www.schroders.com/en/be/prof...al-revolution/

Well, at least that would help solve the over-population problem!
