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.

Littering – a responsibility tax – “I” am responsible

Our environment is full of plastic waste. Every corner and huge numbers of drops of the Earth’s water has been contaminated with micro plastics. It may not be you or I doing this but it is our human primate species, of which we are all part of and that we are partially responsible for as conscious intelligent individuals, that is doing it. So this is my thinking of what “I”, that’s all of us “I”s consider normal part 10 and what we should do about it.

We need responsibility taxation throughout our consumption. There are few reasons to be drinking out of PFAS coated takeaway cups and not bringing our own refillable cups to a place where we purchase a takeaway drink. To curb the use of these environmentally and potentially health damaging cups there should be a tax on manufacturing them, a tax on corporations and other sized businesses purchasing them, a tax for branding and marketing them in any way as is the case here and of course a huge fining system for anyone who deposits a takeaway cup like this in the environment like this, with an additional fine on the company for allowing their branding to litter the environment. Take away cups must be driven if not to extinction then very close to it. The planet cannot afford our species convenience, stupidity and irresponsibility.

A dispute – corporations and tax

I took this photo recently of what was presumably a Cafe Nero on the corner of Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia, London. It appears from the notice that the bailiffs had to repossess the property judging by one notice on the window while a second describes the amount of tax paid by the organisation, a reference that I have seen before. Cafe Zero featured in Private Eye’s logos as they should be. Not that they are only ones. Not many years ago during a London Pride event the large crowd started shouting, “Pay your tax” as the Starbucks float went past. Our societies are becoming very broken yet governments seem unwilling to tackle taxing companies and corporations enough for our services to function correctly. When rich individuals or organisations are able to donate and fund political parties democracy is undermined and one person, one vote no longer works as it should. The system is well and truly broken apart for those making up the 1%.

Britain – a first world nation. Really?

How can a country call itself a first world nation when UNICEF have to start delivering food to hungry children? There is little to be proud about when an international agency has to do this for a nation that has so many wealthy individuals. https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-for-the-first-time-in-its-history-unicef-will-help-feed-kids-in-the-uk-12163515

Hastings – An English Seaside Town living in Faded Glory

We went to Hastings yesterday. Neither of us had ever been before. It’s another seaside town living in faded glory. Despite it being a nice warm sunny the beaches were not that busy. Now saying that the top of the beaches at least are made up of shingles and not sand. It looked more sandy down towards the water’s edge though.

We stopped for lunch at a small and probably locally owned cafe that was very pleasant although definitely a little faded paint wise. What it lacked in new paint was definitely made up by the pleasant staff and the nice clientele. One of two ladies on a table near to us went over to a homeless man, came back and bought him a burger.

This cafe wasn’t very busy unlike Easy Cafe, Cafe Nero and Costa. Now it seems to me, that considering the state of the town’s finances, to ask do these chain and corporate owned cafes beneficial to the town? I don’t think so because what little money is in the town gets sucked out and into the corporate coffers and does not stay in the hands of the locals. I wonder what percentage of turnover is paid in tax by the corporate coffee shops compared to the woman running the local independent.

In addition chains just make everywhere look the same and stifle individuality. Hastings is a nice little town, a lady called out to us that it was OK to park as it was free on Sundays. I decided against the car park as it said that it had speed humps and we went there in the Chimaera.

Strangely enough Caroline saw some people who had been in Bar Bruno on Saturday when we were there. Spooky or six degrees of separation. If we are to revive the economies of places like Hastings we probably need to keep the money circulating in the local economy and not have it being siphoned off to some tax haven.
