lol It must be bad joke...maybe sarcasm or something?
Actually, raising animals for food produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the cars and other forms of transportation combined. I read that in the United States, for example, 70% of the grain grown is fed to farmed animals. As for me, I'm sure that the simplest and cheapest way to reduce the human impact on the environment is to stop eat meat. Unfortunately, environmental pollution is a huge problem. There are so many things around that can a serious diseases: toxic chemicals, nuclear materials, devices that emit ultraviolet and other types of radiation, gas emmissions. I even ordered Handheld detection to detect and localize radioactive materials and radiation level in my area. I think we should pay more attention to the environment protection.

I didn't read all of this so this might have been said before

Humans use oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide so do the people have to die too?

Farming masses of animals pumps masses of CO2 into the atmosphere.

Plants make oxygen in the day time but they produce carbon CO2 at night.

A lot of people are just idiots. Ignore them.

Regenerative organic farming may be a practical solution to sequestering all those harmful CO2 emissions.

I hope you don't think I am pro-farming animals. I'm not.I despise it. I was making the point that humans use up the oxygen and pump CO2 into the atmosphere and we don't think people have to die horrible deaths because of that but we farm animals who do the same thing and they have horrible lives and deaths.

It was in response to the "veganism is bad for the atmosphere" claim which is what is stupid. Eating cultivated plants is much less damaging than farming masses of animals - so the non vegans are the ones damaging the atmosphere.

I don't call myself a vegan because I have meds that use lactose as filler. Everything else is animal product free. I don't take capsuals unless they are veg.

If everyone stopped using dairy then the pharmaceutical companies would have to find something less evil to mix into their products.

I hate cruelty to any animal but I have a real loathing for the dairy industry so it really (insert word we are not allowed to use here) me off that so may medications have lactose in them.

How dare advertisers talk about "happy" cows and supporting Australian dairy farming families. Why does anyone support sadistic killers. I am so glad their farms are doing so poorly here.

I just meant that it's a good idea to plant organic crops and/or trees where land is now being used as pasture or as a place to grow food for livestock. At present, too much land is being used up for these purposes.
