It has zero to do with politics and everything to do with energy.

Trading in $20 bills for $1.50 isn't a smart move.

Our planet is polluted...of that there is no doubt. Runoff from the 10X as much fertilizer and poo, etc. is creating poison algae blooms and also e-coli in many waters.

No one is saying people should stop eating meat (or every few). However, eating more efficiently is yet another one of those things which is win-win-win. My meat-loving cousin who was born the same week as I died 2 years back from colon cancer.

I think some of the Asian cultures have it right....meat is there, but not a pound of it!

Look at the results of cheap meat and cheap sugar and corn syrup here in the USA. Obesity. Sloth. Disease. Mortality. Pollution.

We've been veggie for almost 50 years but even those in our extended family who are not still generally have cut back on meat and eat more veggies and good stuff.

Only because the number of people is too large.

And Democrats want more and more and more people here.

What happens when you put too many fish in a tank?

Look at India. That is our future under liberalism.

America's population is growing? According to news sources, our birth rate in this country is "alarming" and a "national emergency" and that's why we "need more immigrants":

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...nts/618422002/

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/so...nts-2016-07-18 (You'll have to scroll past their horrible index editing)

https://www.wbur.org/onpoint/2018/05/23/birth-rate-drop

https://theweek.com/articles/642303/...onal-emergency

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/th...u-s-birth-rate

I really wish people would keep up with what they claim before making another claim that says the complete opposite.

We have cut way back on our red meat in the last few years. MUCH smaller portions and less frequently.

Agree with you on Asian cuisine.

But sloth?

I've never had a gun pointed at my head as I ate a salad. I guess that can be accomplished by the end of the calendar year.

I'm not a vegan and never will be, but some vegan foods are okay. The worst ones are typically the ones that are designed to imitate meat. If you look for vegan dishes that are inherently vegan you can find some good stuff.
