New York and Boston are already beta testing itty bitty apartments, and yesterday the LA Times reported that San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors is considering official revisions to the city’s building code to allow for even less living space. [Taken from Infowars]
The re-wilding and housing put forth by UN Agenda 21 is suggested in response to climate change and human impact.
The evil CO2 can be defeated if most people adopted a vegetarian diet. But since most don’t want to do that, I can hardly take any CO2 rant or slant seriously. The meat industry is one of the most costly and wasteful practices human beings are responsible for… and it generates more CO2 than combustion engines. Don’t believe me? Spend some time and look into it.
Think about it. Cattle drink between 6 and 18 gallons of water per day… per head! Then, you take into consideration the water used to grow GMO corn to feed the cattle… and the land used for both growing the feed and for the cattle itself. Cattle and other animals you love to consume consistently emit greenhouse gasses until they are slaughtered for your enjoyment. Then, you have to transport the cattle to be slaughtered; the slaughterhouse also… runs on energy. Then you ship the flesh twice more, using fossil fuels, ’til it ends up on store shelves. But, then you drive to go buy it, then drive home… requiring still, more energy, and emitting more “dreadful” CO2.
Global meat production is projected to more than double from 229 million tonnes in 1999/2001 to 465 million tonnes in 2050, while milk output is set to climb from 580 to 1043 million tonnes.
A Japanese study showed that producing a kilogram of beef leads to the emission of greenhouse gases with a global warming potential equivalent to 36.4 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). It also releases fertilising compounds equivalent to 340 grams of sulphur dioxide and 59 grams of phosphate, and consumes 169 megajoules of energy (Animal Science Journal, DOI: 10.1111/j.1740-0929.2007.00457.x). In other words, a kilogram of beef is responsible for the equivalent of the amount of CO2 emitted by the average European car every 250 kilometres, and burns enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for nearly 20 days (New Scientist magazine, 18 July 2007, page 15 ).
So, if you are a “global warming” belieber and an Agenda 21 loving person, and you eat meat, you are a joke. But I bet it feels good to think yourself an “environmentalist”.
