  •  I hate soy, that comes from destroyed rain forest (5+ / 0-)

    because that's where lots of our soy comes from. Is the carbon lost from the rain forest as great as from eating how much beef?

    Food is not so simple of a subject. It would be more fun if things were so easily categorized into good/bad.

    And actually I don't like feed lots. Except that when I smell them I always know weather is moving in. They are to my NE and quite a distance away, in order to smell them the cold has to be creeping in from Canada and pushed under the warmer air coming from California with it's mercury laden air from cement plants. None the less if I smell the feed lots, I know it's weather.

    I'm frankly distrustful of blanket condemnations such as wealthy foodies often make. So often I've been given a very slanted view, I'll reserve judgement on beef for now.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?
