Yet another in a long line of unhinged, shrieking, annoying, deranged bat-guano insane articles on Thanksgiving. Which will be recycled for Christmas, you know
Behind the delicious foods, Thanksgiving has a dark side
The shame of chowing down enough turkey to feed an entire village of Pilgrims isn’t the only reason to feel guilty this Thanksgiving. The environmental impact of a turkey feast for eight is approximately 44 pounds of carbon dioxide, a gas that contributes significantly to global warming. At the root cause of all this damage are a few of the staples that make up our dinner table this Thursday.
1. Gobble gobbling up the Earth’s atmosphere
About 60 percent of the Thanksgiving carbon footprint comes from the life cycle of the turkey alone. Though red meat like beef generates the greatest amount of greenhouse gases, farm-raised poultry like turkey is still considered to be “high impact.”
If you couldn’t care less about climate change (or remain one of those that deny its existence), something to take into consideration is the tremendous amount of waste involved in making a turkey dinner. It’ll takes at least 915,200 barrels of oil to produce and ship all the turkeys Americans eat, according to the Center for Food Safety.
So if you’re feeling a bit guilty this Thursday, pardon the turkey, make less of it and try composting your table scraps.
Notice that Climahysteric Kirthi Dronamraju doesn’t recommend “don’t have turkey if you believe in anthropogenic climate change.” As typical, Warmists are advised to just make a token amend afterwards.
Kirthi also tells us about all the evil carbon pollution from planes, trains, and automobiles for the trips taken. No recommendation for Warmists to just stay home.
Your “beige foods”, meaning all the sides, are bad, as well, because of all the road miles. But, hey, you can go to your local fancy, expensive, local farmer’s market and get the veggies there. Though, according to Kirthi, you’ll pay a whole lot more. I guess that’s something in Liberal World areas. The farmer’s market’s down here are not expensive.
And then we’re on to food waste. Well, yes, this is a real issue. Recycling and composting are nice, but, good luck composting in a Leftist run city, which often have laws against doing this within city limits, because it can be dirty and smelly. Environmentally, limiting food waste is a good idea. It’s also good for your pocketbook
While you’re composting your biodegradable scraps instead of sending them away to landfills, consider going completely paperless at the table. Stick with reusable forks, knives, spoons, plates and glasses, as well as cloth napkins (not paper ones) and tablecloths. And rather than throwing away meals, freeze or recycle them for delicious leftovers.
It’s so tedious that Warmists hijack real environmental issues for their own unhinged purposes. It’s also tedious that they have to ruin everything, especially holidays, with their climate scam rants.
