HERE THE VIEW it was like #3 best earth moments hiking down in flip flops was the like the #3 scariest thing I’ve done as well ANYWAYS here’s some earth day shit, WHY OUR DIET IS KILLING DA WORLD: 🌿The UN has said for years that if we want to make lasting and larger steps to environmental improvement, we as a society must begin taking steps in reducing our consumption of livestock: one of the most significant contributors to nearly EVERY SINGLE SERIOUS ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUE, at every scale from local to global.
🌿Global emissions? Accounts for over 18%! That is more than all of transportation emissions COMBINED (13%).
🌿Water waste? The livestock industry uses up over one-third of all of Earth’s available water. LOne pound of animal protein requires about 100 times more water than producing one pound of grain protein”.The animals themselves need water, too! Irrigation? Uses up nearly ALL (80-90%) of the United States water. The drought in Cali right now? Yeah, keep your almond milk. Cut out the meat. 🌿Land use?! Over half of the United States land is being overgrazed, causing soil erosion and degradation. Nearly half of available land, in all of the WORLD btw, is occupied by livestock.Environments under water are even damaged by over fishing. Oh and deforestation? You can thank animal agriculture for nearly ALL (91%) of the Amazon’s destruction.☕️🐸
I’m posting this Wall Street Journal Op-Ed piece authored by U.S. Representative Lamar Smith, Republican from Texas, not because I agree with anything he has to say. In fact, I think he’s a total dumb-ass idiot, undoubtedly in bed with the oil and gas industry. But this man is the Chair of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, which has oversight over a lot of environmental and energy laws, so he’s right in the middle of the climate change issue. Consider this along with the fact that Senator James Inhofe, Republican from Oklahoma, is Chair of the Senate Environmental Committee. Think about that. Two anti-science, climate change deniers, one of whom thumps his bible all the time, are responsible for legislation (or lack or legislation) related to our most pressing environmental issues.
Excerpt (Read and puke or weep):
Given that for the past decade and a half global-temperature increases have been negligible, and that the worsening-storms scenario has been widely debunked, the pronouncements from the Obama administration sound more like scare tactics than fact-based declarations.
Climate reports from the U.N.—which the Obama administration consistently embraces—are designed to provide scientific cover for a preordained policy. This is not good science. Christiana Figueres, the official leading the U.N.’s effort to forge a new international climate treaty later this year in Paris, told reporters in February that the real goal is “to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years.” In other words, a central objective of these negotiations is the redistribution of wealth among nations. It is apparent that President Obama shares this vision.
Climate alarmists have failed to explain the lack of global warming over the past 15 years. They simply keep adjusting their malfunctioning climate models to push the supposedly looming disaster further into the future.
