I just cut down on meat

I did it to meet my personal CO2 emission targets. By eating a lot of fish instead, I am finally meeting my personal climate target goal. I think we should all make a switch soon. It feels so empowering! It seems like the government is not going to fix this problem, so we should take the plunge. *splish splash*

I totally support that

(although be prepared for some thumbs down(s) here). I'd take it one step further and say cut down on meat and fish so you have 2-3 main meals a week that are just veg/pasta etc.

If everyone cut back on meat by just 1 day a week, the methane from the meat/cow/pork/ industry would be lowered incredibly. However, I read that they have tried to get Americans to do this by promoting "meatless Mondays". It hasn't gone as well as you'd think. People act like if they don't have meat everyday, 7 days/365, they'll starve or feel deprived. Rubbish. If everyone did it the planet would benefit. It's a small sacrifice. Same people act like if they can't have milk 7 days per week they'll get rickets or be calcium different. Absolute entitled rubbish.

Lab meat production is already underway, and even being commercially sold in the country I'm currently in. It's just a short matter of time until it reaches Canuckistan. Until then, better the 5 letter V word, because Elaine Benes is wrong, fish DO feel pain.

My friend Bob Sacamano eats fish all the time too. He's one of them fishatarians.

Your need to get vaxxed right away, before it's too late. The planet depends upon it. I don't know how anyone thinks they can survive without the effort of at least a thousand others pushing it forward. You are one cog in the wheel, but at least you're a fisherman and not a cowboy.

The World Health Organization (WHO)’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that consumption of processed meat is “carcinogenic to humans (Group I),” and that consumption of red meat is “probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A).” The report differentiates the two meats as follows:

Processed meat — meat that has been transformed through salting, curing, fermentation, smoking, or other processes to enhance flavour or improve preservation

Red meat — unprocessed mammalian muscle meat such as beef, veal, pork, lamb, mutton, horse and goat meat.

FYI, smoking tobacco is also a group one carcinogen, according to the WHO.

How do you think fishing boats run to catch fish? On fossil fuels! Seriously, you want to help collapse the oceans? Did you know about how rampant slavery is in the fishing industry? People get kidnapped and worked to death on boats in SE Asia. Why not just have a balance? I eat free range BC beef and only line caught fish from local fisherpeople. Eating a BC grown steak is way better for the planet than frozen tiger prawns from across the globe. Think about it.

It's plankton all day. Rotifers, foraminiferans, diatoms, copepods, I love 'em all. Can't be cheaper than free. Can't be more plentiful than lots. Can't be easier to find than everywhere.
