I’m not so concerned about global warming, but I’m concerned of the amount of grains, water, antibiotics, and overall resources that go in to raising cattle. Shipping feed, shipping cattle, and overall energy use and grain use that could be used to feed humans in other parts of the world may not be infinitely sustainable.
As modernization is occuring in currently less developed parts of the world, they want more protein in their diets and they start consuming some of the finite supply of meat, this means less for me.
So if people buy this crap, let them eat all the veggies they want. I will eat what remains. I’ve been getting bottom round at Kroger for 2$/lb, same w/ pork, and 2.50$ a pound for top round. I’m happy w/ these prices.
Also, you see what happens when bison have a couple of easy Winters and their population explodes, but then you have a relatively easy existence for human beings and their population explodes.
When life becomes a bit tougher, probably when there are too many people alive for the earth’s resources to support, people will start to die off.
This means hard times for everyone and I’m thinking sooner or later, human flesh may be a potential meat source for those willing to eat it. Human meat farms are a scary thought and I’m wondering if shit ever hits the fan will people die fast enough to support the meat demand.
If meat was in short supply, would you be willing to eat human flesh that died of natural causes? Would you eat it if somebody killed it for you? Would you be willing to do the dirty deed yourself and axe your neighbor to get his protein?
