I've signed but I'm not happy with their grasping at 'me' and where I go, nor the habit of using the email of signee's for their own benefit.

Lovely world where heathens get to butcher animals for sport or habit, let alone these noble animals. The Faeroe's are Danish are they not?

WARNING, GRAPHIC CONTENT :!:



I agree, it is awfull. But I think there is a deal of hypocracy here (Myself included) Have been a meat lover all my life..............But I think if we had similar images of a doe eyed 8 week old calf watching the calf in front of it being killed in a most horrendous way, and that calf knowing it is next. Watching it being hung upside down with a hook through its leg in the production line and its belly being slit with one deft practiced slice with its lungs guts and other organs hitting the slaughter house floor in front of the doe eyed baby animal. Food for thought?
We get our meat in styrene packaging grom the meat department with elevator music playing in the background.
Bring on Lab grown meat and plant based "meat' THey are making great progress in this production. I had some plant based prawn fritters the other day..........I genuinely could not tell the difference.
Bring it on :thumb:

I know what you mean but there is a difference here. Stunned first, calf and cow. Dolphins slaughtered on a beach with zero respect. If you are going to kill an animal for food, respect it, the animal is sentient after all.

Having said that, when there is a meat free alternative, I take it.

Yes, a little hypocritical but my father was a butcher in Smithfield market and when there was no food in the house which happened a lot in the fifties and early sixties, there were scraps/trimmings from work which he brought home and we had something. Not everyone had that.

As another aside, one of my uncles worked at Producers banana's located in the arches beneath Clapham junction station. He would bring round the bruised and battered banana's nobody wanted, so many we thought we would start to look like them at one stage but that dried up because they were put into a composting scheme for the Battersea farm.

We are going to have to make a lot of changes in the ways we live our lives, clothe and feed ourselves but we are not making those changes fast enough, yet.

Fuel from algae blooms, Co2 removed from the brewing process by algae and water from dry air, what next? We can do this if we put our minds to it and invest PROPERLY.

I do draw the line firmly below steak from faecal matter though. That I will leave to the science fiction crews........

Guys,

I see where you are coming from. I have always like a good steak but over the past few years I can't stop thinking about where the steak, chicken wings, lamb chops, rashers etc etc came from.

I have also tried out a few veggie meat alternatives and find them quite palatable also knowing that what I'm eating came from plants makes its all the more tasty.

Another thought! If we move away totally from animal meat consumption the huge poultry, cattle and pig farms will be a thing of the past. There are currently over 19 billion chickens (static population)in the world. If we stop eating them, this figure will drop drastically as we will only eat their eggs. The same logic applies to cattle and a pig populations. These are forced up populations levels because we eat them. It is IMO an unnatural balance. So the only thing I would ask is that these animals are kept in good conditions and killed humanely.

Wild animals, especially dolphins, are a totally different matter. I have heard fishermen are complaining that dolphins can and do effect their catches BUT who was here first and who is living in harmony with nature..... its not humans!

The bottom line for me is that there are far too many humans but again I see that some highly populated countries are levelling out population wise.

An interesting link Bep. I read with great interest. I think the operative word has to be sustainability!

When I come to think of it, WWl and WW2 and any other war one cares to mention could be reasonably argued to have been quite sustainable even though they have been heralded as great atrocities.
