It’s Veganuary – have you made any changes at all?

I posted this a year ago and Veganuary is here again so time to try reducing your meat intake or going meat free.

January 2021

We are rushing away from the start of the New Year. Are any of your New Year’s resolutions intact? Do you know about Veganuary? Perhaps it’s time that you took a small step to improve your health, save the lives of some animals and protect the environment with special reference to the Amazon rainforest. So thing about reducing your meat intake, try vegetarian and vegan options as there are plenty of good ones.

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.

Changing diets – it’s not easy to feed the world

Another blog entry from May 2020. Since then the rate of increase in human primate population numbers is still around 80,000,000 every 365 days so in rough terms you could say that the human race has increased with an extra 120,000,000 mouths to feed. However, with drought, floods, fire and higher temperatures in some cases we are beginning to see crop yields fall so we clearly have a problem with the size of our species.

May 2020

Growing up in England when I did the food choices were very limited compared to what they are today or they were I suspect for many in my type of household. There were few supermarkets in those days and those that did exist were much smaller than the monsters that we see today. The high street was alive with bakers, butchers, fishmongers and of course fruit and veg shops and of course very little plastic packaging would be seen anywhere but that’s a different story. The fruit and veg shops sold a much smaller range of products and many were seasonal so growing up was very much meat and several “local” veg in general. The potato was a large part of my diet, mashed, boiled or roasted and I used to love potatoes.

Now however things have changed and in many ways for the better for me and for many others. I rarely eat potatoes and these have been replaced by rice, pasta and lentils and even occasionally some couscous. However at what environmental cost and what cost to the world’s farmers? The previous few decades have seen CO2 emissions rise at an alarming rate and some of that is due to the shipping of food all over the planet. My diet is now wonderful in its diversity but the cost in environmental terms has added to locking us in almost certainly to 1.5 degrees and possibly 2 degrees centigrade or more in the very near future. It’s important to see the whole and larger picture and be objective about food. It is great to be vegan or vegetarian but somebody eating locally produced meat is possibly doing less damage to the environment than those causing food miles to be part of their diet. I cannot imagine going back to a diet based around potatoes and carrots almost every day and neither can I imagine would many vegans or vegetarians want to either. We need some serious planning on how we are going to feed the growing population sustainably and there are no easy answers.

Vegan edge and other street art or graffiti, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Buenos Aires is one of my favourite cities and one that I have been fortunate to visit a number of times. This seems to be an eclectic mix of unconnected street art or graffiti. 17th February 2012.

How many food miles?
