Interesting to see what people think will make a change and what *actually* does! https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-reduces-our-personal-co2-footprint-we-have-clue-frank-bilstein/
tbh I've been interested for a while in trying out a vegetarian/vegan diet, but I would easily get called a commie if I started rejecting meat lol (also, a vegan one would very much likely need supplements and medical oversight, which isn't that nice)
@espectalll just need to do this poll in usa now
@Ste1lar here you go
@espectalll that's very different
@Ste1lar I love how they barely think about flights, I assume because they're so used to them lol
@espectalll the usa is so fucking big recucing plane use will be very hard
@Ste1lar ye, and I guess they can't replace kerosene-powered planes with ✨ green ✨ clean electric planes anytime soon lol
@espectalll batteries not powerful enough, and not enough power to last a flight
@Ste1lar not just that (I'm honestly not sure that's the key issue), but batteries probably weight a lot more than a fuel engine and kerosene
@espectalll well for the same power output yse
Or growing energy grass, turning it into methane in anaerobic conditions, and either burning that liquified methane directly in airplanes, or further processing it into heavier hydrocarbons
But if we got plenty of cheap and carbon neutral electricity, we could electrolyse water for H2, harvest atmospheric CO2 and turn that into methane with the Sabatier reaction
You would get called commie if you started rejecting your liberty to eat whatever you want like now. owo
@Pervertor right, I won't reject my liberty to eat ass!
@espectalll I'd rather do all the others than give up meat.
@m4iler Is it really that worth it? Especially since science is at a point where it can apparently make soy look, feel, bleed and taste like meat
@m4iler ...I don't know how long before there's vegan steaks, but I don't know, I don't think that some really good flavors are worth animals short term and people long term dying (and having many other kinds of issues due to climate change) for?
@espectalll Well, there are people who can't take soy (me), plus if we hadn't bred chickens/pigs/cows to eat, they'd go extinct.
@m4iler Good point on the soy, although I would expect more things to come later on, and again I don't think feeling flavors should be the biggest priority. And the chickens/pigs/cows going extinct thing... no, they could become rarities, but they're already too well known, appreciated and even available to go extinct. Same argument is used here for bulls with toreo and I don't believe no one would ever want to take care of them, nor find ways to profit off them.
