This is not a joke.

Every person must stop using Fossil Fuels immediately,

Not tomorrow, not next week, not in a few years....

This minute.

Turn everything off. Right Now.

Stop flying, stop driving, stop eating, stop heating your home.

Right now dammit.

Now. Or we all die.

Better ymyer want to help more is everyone stop Eating animals and adding far more to the problem than cars

Intensive farming is an issue. Both animals and plants. At the same time, non-intensively farmed beef is carbon neutral.

Greed and non-caring is the real issue. Humanity pretty much. If we don’t change that first then we will erode the value of arable land even more and need more fertilizers to and whatnots to produce sentient plants.

But switching flexitarian, or vegetarian, wouldn’t be a bad start. We don’t necessarily need red meat and everything helps. And boy we need it, without vilifying those who do or don’t... enough issues and this is a real crisis. Only collab will help us out of it.

As long as the super rich are flying all over the place on vacation, and between there many mansions while creating massive amounts of pollution from their industries all around the globe we are doomed. They are entitled to their entitlements.

Yeah but those aren’t the only issues, mate. They are massive issues, totally agreed but there’s much more at work. There’s more than just headlines and clickbait. But I totally agree.

More than half of the world’s population will continue to grow their CO output in next decade merely because of the fact that they are emerging economies and don’t have the capital, nor legal framework, to roll out renewable energy on scale large enough to support their growth. Even when they “try” like China.

Let’s start with ditching the supermarket and discounter culture and pay more for food so farming can become more sustainable again, rather than pure erosion [of arable land] for minimal profits.

We need a much larger scale approach. The good thing about private flights is that it’s something which is easily regulated and they 0.1% will keep spending on newest airplane. Bring electric [private] planes which allow them to fly from New York to London and watch how quickly they buy those... so they pay less carbon tax. They don’t like paying [taxes] so make sure there’s ways to force them to switch. Just raising taxes won’t do it because they will just move elsewhere. Give them alternatives while also taxing the old and they will switch.

But then the question is... is the electricity used green or fossil?

Here we have +7k islands, some of which will disappear, others which will see massive displacement. They had a rep at the Paris convention who was literally crying about the damage climate change would do and what happened same year? New coal mine licenses were granted... sure with 7k isles we have sufficient wind to generate different energy, you would think.

Btw we will all die anyway. That, and taxes, are the only certitude we have in life. So let’s care about our offspring’s generation and give them a potential future.

Btw with the exception of fans and a two hub cooker, as well as my kettle, I don’t have any not USB-powered devices anymore. Even don’t use my laptop anymore as my iPad is powerful enough and much lower in electricity consumption. :)

PS: I even didn’t mention the common burning of land after crop in development nations so the land is ready faster again. Indonesia, Singapore, India, Cambodia have yearly massive smog clouds because of that. We should also ditch making bonfire on yearly bonfire nights. :D

PPS: I totally know it’s absolutely difficult and I definitely don’t support the habits of billionaires. But meanwhile all your plastic is sold and allows people here to live from burning it in pellets.

If we stopped eating animals right now the world would be vegetarian and guess what eats most crops? 😆 On a serious note, if the whole world went vegetable based right now it would cause more problems than it solves. Overpopulation is real. Being more mindful of the planet is certainly something we need to work hard towards. Status quo ain’t so great, I agree there. The energy whores need to go easy on the fossil fuels for sure and we need more efficient alternatives which can come to market without the medaling of the energy mafia. The only reason we don’t have solutions are because of lobbying not because we lack the innovative solutions. It’s a people problem and we are animals too.

I’m sure the Elite have a good plan to wipe out a few billion people.

@offgrid Between the Georgia Guide stones and Bill Gates TedTalk where he says if we do vaccines, health care and reproductive health well enough we can lower the population by 10-15% in 10 years. I would say Bingo on wiping out a few billion people. Or at least making a generation sterile. That talk was in 2003 and many of those who first got the HPV vaccine now in their late 20's are now showing up in record numbers at fertility clinics.

There is plenty if land for the people of the earth, the issue is people want to pack 10 million people in a 10 mile radius. If people would spread out some, resources wouldn't be so stretched.
People not eating meat would cause a host of problems. And the biggest issue of what we humans are actually doing is trashing and poisoning the earth.

·

When I think of over population I think of animals. There are necessary measures / culling animals to protect the environment. This is true for most developed and lesser developed Nations. There are wolves and bears in states near me that unless mitigated would devastate agriculture for both us humans and also cause major dysfunction in ecosystems large and small.

·

There is a balance in nature and if you remove on of the balances to the ecosystem it throws it out of wack. Look what happened when they killed off the wolves in Yellow Stone National Park, threw the ecosystem out of wack and it only fixed itself when they brought back the wolves.

·

Please elaborate:

... now it would cause more problems than it solves.

I don’t necessarily disagree but I don’t necessarily agree either. :D

Most drivers here in the US slam into deer on the highway, but imagine slamming into a 2,000 lb animal like a Bull... imagine if people couldn’t let their dogs and cats outside because there are predators like alligators, snakes, birds, wolves, bears, wildcats, and so forth that would have a field day feeding on domestic animals. Imagine if we stopped providing wildlife preservation, which includes culling/killing animals to protect ecosystems and endangered species. Our world would not be as bright as many dream it would if we stopped killing animals. Stop farming animals for meat - that also means we stop feeding them and release a domestic animal into the wild with zero chance of survival. Not to mention the fact these animals would devastate all crops and we would all starve to death alongside the animals that we are now battling for sustenance. The consequences far outweigh the benefits. Fact is eating meat is partly responsible for human evolution and has enhanced the human brain to be what it is.

Meat, NAD, and Human Evolution. Archaeological and palaeo-ontological evidence indicate that hominins increased meat consumption and developed the necessary fabricated stone tools while their brains and their bodies evolved for a novel foraging niche and hunting range, at least 3 million years ago. source

Why even attempt to pretend we don’t need meat? We are omnivores 😂

·

Omnivores, note omni not exclusivivores.

I read all of the above and I have a question: why do you seem to present things as mutually exclusive?

Sure, they are valid arguments, even more so against “vegan warriors” who see only one option but they aren’t that big issues. We are talking about climate, not about “sentient preservation” [luckily not because most vegans didn’t yet get the memo that plants are sentient and they would thus be reduced to eating only fruits, but only those of not seasonal plants]. But climate emergency is not philosophical debate.

There are big issues with switching to 100% plant based but they aren’t necessarily the ones presented above. They are issues and should be considered but they aren’t necessarily issues in the climate emergency debate.

Oh and... if we stop breeding them for meat, then they don’t exist and the above is a non-issue.

There are many issues that human kind faces, thankfully I’m not in charge of fixing them all or we would all be in deep shit. 😆 True story. What I mentioned above was simply off hand and not as thought out as I’d like - it’s been a very difficult two weeks for me.

Just remember what we take away simply creates a place for new. We generate opportunity and not all opportunity leads to positive outcomes. We can all have equal opportunity and still have many complaining and unhappy because this is often confused with equal outcome.

We can all make positive impact on the world, but that also means taking self responsibility. It takes people doing what they feel is right, rather than telling other people to do what they think is right. Waste of time. Just a thought, not a sermon.

I eat vegetables everyday..but I also eat meat everyday. I feel like I would truly wither away and die without meat in my diet, to each is own but reality must play into our personal experiences at some point.. how many vegans win strongman competitions? How many non meat eating countries have conquered another? How many non-meat eaters have tried and failed at restructuring a world that relies on both meat and vegetables? It’s the largest failure in human culture to date. Even religion seems to poll better.

We conquered earth first eating plants. :P

Yeah, I’ve tried switching and I don’t manage better than flexitarian. But that’s not to say that we don’t have top professional athletes who are vegan.

It’s not easy and many need to carefully watch their nutrition because there’s risks to be deficient in for example iron but all the rest about “we need meat” is utter tosh. Sorry, it is.

I know I need meat..LOL can’t speak for anyone else, but I love to eat chicken, fish, beef, bison, deer, elk, turkey, pigs, lamb, and all sorts of stuff. I have no issue with vegetarians or vegans or really any facet of human you can think of. My issue is solely with people who make decisions for themselves and then decide by virtue to impose their will unto others. That’s never going to fly with me because I’ll deep fry it and eat it first 😋
