[QUOTE=redpoint5;600150]I agree with a little over half of that list.
Farming animals is efficient, and fish are no different.

Pesticides are a necessary evil. Eliminate pesticides and fertilizers, and the world starves to death. The key is to apply them carefully, being mindful of water run off.

/QUOTE]

This is the point that most current climate only (not viewing the big picture) activists totally do not understand. Mechanized factory farming with hybrid/ GMO crops using artificial fertilizer and pesticides eliminated what would have been mass starvation starting in the 70's. And the population has even doubled again since 1970. We cannot suddenly stop big agro without starvation. We cannot suddenly reduce access to energy without deprivation. We must buy time with further techno advances to stretch the resources we have left and learn to coast back down with a new social system to where more of the population can grow more of their own food, fiber, and firewood themselves organically once again. And where people in OECD countries can thrive and be happy in an economic system that works with much less material and energy throughput while we uplift living standards and education in the global South to encourage and enable lower fertility rates.

I'm thinking about vast submarine geodesic dome fish farms floating in the open ocean, with little medic drones floating with the fish. Why would i want to change? Anyways, thinking involves both knowledge and intention.

Either without the other is fruitless.

If anything, I recently lowered my carbon footprint by changing my diet by almost eliminating meat, alcohol and processed food, especially soluble sugars and starch.

The climate wasn't my main concern though. I had a series of mini strokes that even medicine, diet and exercise could not end.
Last Thursday morning I received a PCI and a stent was placed to fix a single 80-90% blockage in a coronary artery... That was a close call!

Anyway, the diet and exercise started well before the PCI. I lost 8 kilograms in less than 2 months without effort, and since I started avoiding free sugars and starch, without hunger (no sugar dips). And I'll keep it up; I'm glad the PCI worked out but not looking forward to receiving another one in a hurry!

Hope your carbon footprint stays around RD. I'd miss it if it were gone.

How would you characterize you current diet? Mediterranean? Paleo?

If you don't mind, what's a mini-stroke like? I get muscle cramps in my rib cage exerting effort in some postures (I know it's a cramp when sometimes I can feel the muscle knotted up). Each time I am concerned that it might be something inside the rib cage.

I get checked regularly, but each time I run the risk of being knocked off my bike by someone in a car with a cell phone.

Do you want runaway greenhouse effect? Because that's how you get runaway greenhouse effect.

With the advent of Frankfurt School Marxism and it's corruption of the public discourse.
I'm in the middle of 'GREEN TYRANNY exposing the totalitarian roots of the climate industrial complex,' by Rupert Darwall,2017,Encounter Books.
It's my first exposure to the Frankfurt School.
Darwall provides plenty of judgement,criticism,spin, attacks,and headline-grabbing comments,committing the same sins he's judge,jury,and executioner for.
As an 'analyst',I'm surprised that he'd be surprised by anything they did.

priviledge and right

According to Black's Law Dictionary,both terms are legal constructs.They're not something which exists outside the human mind.

What is different today is that the USofA has a Chief Executive who's private security force is better than a corrupted Department of Justice.

A friend shared 'HOW NOT TO DIE' by Dr. Michael Gregor.The contents of the book try to stay as close to randomized,double-blind,placebo-controlled,large cohort clinical trials as exist in the available literature.He also does daily pod-casts.
Arterial plaque,hardening of the arteries,high blood pressure,high cholesterol,erectile dysfunction,type-2 diabetes,heart attack and stroke etc.,are all symptomatic of diet and lifestyle.And can all be reversed with a change in diet and lifestyle.
One of my physicals trended downward.The doctor said they could prescribe medication.I opted for a change in diet and more exercise.Next physical I had straightened out.
One thing Gregor mentioned was,that for anyone taking something for ED, the next step would be an operating table or the morgue.As to vascular health,ED is the canary in the coal mine.
A television show over here is about a county coroner/medical examiner in Florida.Often at autopsy,she discovers almost complete blockage of the coronary arteries.The deceased had no symptoms other than sudden death,either by heart attack or stroke.
Many cardiologists over here have gone vegan.I'm doing a flexitarian diet.I eat flesh and binge on fat,salt,and sugar,twice a week.So far,so good.
Glad you dodged a bullet!
