More Warmist Thanksgiving Madness

The insanity continues. And, just think, they’ll be able to start whining about Christmas in less than a week!

3 Things To Think About Before Buying Your Thanksgiving Turkey

Thanksgiving is time for celebration of family, football, and friends, sandwiched between platters of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. But when you head out to pick up those last minute ingredients for your Thanksgiving feast, you may want to consider just how much food won’t get eaten at your table.

3. Reducing Food Waste Brings Environmental Benefits

Improving the efficiency of food production and consumption will help people and the planet. Agriculture is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions—which is the main driver of man-made global warming–with nitrous oxide from fertilizer and carbon dioxide from plowing fields accounting for roughly 10 percent of global emissions.

One unexpected benefit of reducing food loss and waste would be to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. An FAO report from September found that food loss and waste are responsible for about 3.3 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year. That’s about one-half of the total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions (based on 2011 levels).

    Good grief, they won’t be happy until we’re ALL as miserable as they are.
    Listen pal, leave me and my Thanksgiving feast ALONE. I have a large family, and none of our food goes to waste- it’s called LEFTovers you freak.

    Right on Trish. We don’t stuff ourselves at the table like you liberals do with Obama’s ass. We enjoy the food, and any leftovers, we either save for dinner, or leave for leftovers. Others we can send home with other family members.

    Only liberals think food is wasted.

    What the F*** do they think America has been doing over these last 100 years?!?! The only reason why we are able to feed the whole world now, despite losing hundreds of millions of farm land, is because of efficiency.

    And BTW, what the hell is efficiency in consumption?!?!!?!?

    So, it contributes a “major” amount to water vapor and methane? Really?
    I thought we were told it was humans and vehicles.

    No, the benefit of reducing food loss is reducing the amount of food lost. I hate it when I put down a hot dog on my kitchen counter and I lose it. That makes me even hungrier. I then have to go back in to my CO2 producing fridge, turn on the CO2 producing grill, roast another CO2 producing hot dog and then eat 2 at that point. And then later, I CO2 produced more effluence. All because I lost my first hot dog.

    Hahahah, I could only wish for Gumball AND Teach and myself to have a hearty drink together, due to extreme similarities to our philosophies! Let
    s us all hope we don’t have to find each other in an Appocalyptic situation!

    So the Pirate comes out four square in favor of wasting food.

    Can you refute even one fact in the article? Is it your contention that food is not wasted?

    How will reducing food waste harm the economy?

    Once again, J, purposefully misses the context of both the article and the blog post.

    Despite your inability to crawl out of your mom’s basement and find love for your fellow man, I do wish for you to have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Now, go walk to your nearest forest, get a hunting permit, stalk and kill your free-range turkey with your bare hands, and then go feed it to the homeless shelter after cooking it with a carbon-neutral heat source.

    All the while, don’t breathe because CO2 is a pollutant according to your religion’s cult belief system. And you don’t want to be caught polluting. Do ya?

    gummy,

    Thanks. Had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my oldest son’s house with all my children and grandchildren.

    Why do you think that wasting food is such a good thing?

    Can you refute even one fact in the article?

    The problem with your theory that human respiration is harming the planet is twofold. One, it ignores that climate realists are selfishly trying to protect humankind. The Earth will be fine if the temperature goes up 3 or 4 degrees this century and 8 or 10 the next. Human civilization will be affected though. The human species will survive but our way of life will have to change. Two, each human burns about 0.2 kg carbon (as lipids and carbohydrates) per day and we have 7 x 10e9 people. Therefore, we burn about 1.4 x 10e8 kg or 1.4 x 10e5 metric tons of fuel per day which will generate 5 x 10e5 metric tons of CO2/day or 1.6 x 10e8 metric tons/year. Burning fossil fuels adds 2.9 x 10e10 metric tons. Human respiration contributes less than 1% of the added CO2 to the atmosphere.

    Missouri has a share the harvest program where hunters can donate their kill. We butcher our own deer, though (although I didn’t hunt this year – just too busy at work). I may be able to take part in the muzzle loader season in late December. Thanks for your concern.

    A classic strawman argument from the resident liberal who has problems with the truth and reading comprehension.

    Here is what Gumball actually wrote:

    We enjoy the food, and any leftovers, we either save for dinner, or leave for leftovers. Others we can send home with other family members.

    There is no evidence that Gumball or any conservative thinks that “wasting food” is a good thing.

    Can you refute even one fact in the article?

    That depends on what you mean by “facts” Jeffy.

    For example, the article cites an United Nations agency that supposedly details the food waste in the world.

    According to the report, the largest waster of food is the in the Asian market – specifically China. Yet the article tries to make the connection between waste of food in China to waste of food in the US. The facts don’t support that conclusion.

    The biggest factual error in the report itself is that the report doesn’t follow the food chain to the end. For example, the report says that any food that is designated for “human consumption” that is not consumed by humans is lost. That is not true however. Food that rots or cannot be consumed by humans at the farm level is generally turned into food for other animals (pigs) or composted for fertilizer. Even non farmers compost food for fertilizer but the report makes no mention of that or takes that into account.

    Because the report and the article define the parameters of the study and how they use the information, the information cannot be called a lie, but it can be called blatantly dishonest and deceptive.

    Teach was right to post this article because it shows the deception of those on the left, those who swallow it without thinking, or exposes those who try to deceive others.
