Food waste -because people can

I posted this just before Christmas last year. It’s important that a lot of people have gone hungry at this supposedly very special time of the year. Food should never be wasted but especially now.

December 2020

This picture dates back to last year before the virus but it is more relevant now than ever. It’s from the eating area of a well known shopping centre’s food hall. A father and son hardly touched their food and walked off. What they did was wrong on so many levels although I expect some would say that it’s their right to do what they want. I would argue against that. We already had countless numbers of people living on poor diets and with food insecurity before the corona virus struck and it has made the situation far worse. The images of first world countries having long queues for food handouts should shock people especially when considering what first world countries spend their budgets on. Then there is the question of the animals that died to put the meat on the plates. Chain restaurants often buy in food from intensively reared animal suppliers so the suffering of these animals must be taken into account. Then we can also add the food miles and climate change emissions associated with the growing and transporting this food to the plate and then to the bin. How was it disposed of? Probably not very environmentally. There are 7.79 billion of us and many do not have sustainably produced food to meet their daily requirements so time to take the food we eat more seriously. Just because we can afford it in monetary terms does not mean that we can do what we like with it.

Bitcoin’s not for Ethiopian clothes workers – it’s a private party

A few days ago the magical monopoly money made out of thin air was valued at around $50,000, simply human madness. It’s a private party of course and only those rich enough can play. For instance the Ethiopian garment workers earning $7 a week who keep the consumerist economies afloat so that they can play the Bitcoin game will never be able to participate. If an Ethiopian could use all their weekly $7 to save for one Bitcoin it would take them over 137 years. Alternatively if 137 Ethiopian workers starved themselves and didn’t pay any bills for a year then they could buy a Bitcoin assuming that the price hadn’t changed of course or that while they saved they weren’t charged negative interest by the global banking system. There is something deeply disturbing and immoral about money and wealth and few it seem question the system especially when consuming the work of exploited third world labour.
