Eat less meat – it will be good for you and so much better for the planet

I posted this last year. It’s Veganuary again so now’s the time to at least reduce the amount of meat you eat.

January 2021

It’s Veganuary and if you haven’t thought about it already then consider eating one or more meals with no meat products. This photo that I took in Paris was of some apt graffiti on an aptly named street sign, The passage of the small butcher. There are so many things wrong with the fast food and intensive animal farming industries and they contribute massively to environmental destruction and climate change. This includes fossil fuel subsidies so fish can be caught to feed to herbivores and the tearing down of rain forests and other environments to either graze animals or raise crops to feed to animals. None of this is sustainable and there really is no such thing as cheap eats fast food. There is also the human health aspect and for this additional reason all fast food outlets should be taxed in lieu of the damage they are causing to the planet to serve a convenient lifestyle. So every meal should carry a damage to the environment tax of at least one dollar, one pound, one euro and any other local currency to make people pay the real cost of this style of eating.

Ugly fast food, Fray Bentos, Uruguay

The ugly side of the fast food industry?

In the UK, even now, the name of Fray Bentos is probably known most for food and not as a place, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fray_Bentos. 9th February 2014.

Definition, Florence, Italy

I’m fairly certain that I took this photo in Florence. Considering how the Italians value and take their time over food you could question the definition of this. 5th August 2019.

Simpson burguer bar, Itá, Paraguay

Itá’s a town outside of the capital Asunción along Ruta 1. We have friends there and we took this on one of our visits. It’s a quieter place than the capital and worth a stop if you are exploring Paraguay.

Fast food – what’s wrong with that?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-london-52737641/coronavirus-queues-for-mcdonald-s-drive-thru-in-sutton

To many this seems normal but it represents the epitome of what is wrong with the convenience food system. A fast food drive through outlet has opened to long queues. What’s wrong? First it is necessary to own a car which is impossible to replicate in terms of global population. Then the cars emit CO2 adding to climate change. Then there is the consumption of mostly meat with all its attendant environmental and human health issues. All those forests being cut down to create animal farms means some of the animals have to end up somewhere like this. All that global obesity has to have some connection to this. There are social issues of not being able to prepare proper wholesome food because of laziness and also because of the cheapness in terms of those who can afford this type of food and the overall source of that money in terms of human and environmental exploitation.
