ClimaChristmas: Can Your Dinner Save The Planet From Climapocalypse?

I mostly ignored this stuff for Thanksgiving, but, way, way too much material, especially since so many of these climate cultists hate the Christian religion (while also refusing to give up their paid holiday off)

Can your Christmas dinner help save the planet?

Christmas Day is going to look very different for a lot of people this year, but there are also positive changes to indulge in, especially when considering what to eat for Christmas dinner and how to cook it.

Sustainable dietary advice recommends reducing the consumption of meat and an increase in consumption of locally sourced and in-season plant-based proteins, fruits and vegetables we eat. These small changes people can make to their diet are already known to benefit the environment, as well your health.

However, published in Nature Food, new research suggests that food can also have a major effect on the environment due to the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) produced through various methods of cooking. (snip)

“A lot of people are thinking carefully about what type of food to eat, or how it’s packaged or transported but, in terms of climate change, it is sometimes more important to consider how the food is cooked.

“Our research showed that up to 60 per cent of the climate impact of foods can come from cooking – particularly for the most climate-friendly foods like vegetables, when baked in the oven. Whereas appliances like microwave ovens and pressure cookers are generally used for less time, and so use less energy and contribute much less to climate change.”

Why don’t these people just mind their own business?

(CTV News) Christmas tree farmers across Canada and the United States are reporting an increase in demand for evergreens, compounding a supply shortage and prompting Canadians to look for alternatives this holiday season.

Shirley Brennan, executive director of Christmas Tree Farmers of Ontario, told CTV’s Your Morning that tree farmers anticipated a 15 per cent increase in demand this year, in line with annual increases over the last five years. (snip)

While tree farmers did expect to see an increase, Brennan said various factors, including the 2008 recession and climate change, have made it difficult for them to keep up with demand.

Their catch-all for everything, ‘climate change!’ And then dropping the recession 12 years ago? Bitch, please.

(INews) Should you do what you think is the right thing, or what is right for your family? That is the question at the heart of Carys Bray’s warm and thought-provoking third novel, which follows the Abram family in the build-up to a particularly fraught and rain-sodden British Christmas.

Chris Abram believes that not only is climate change about to hasten the end of the world, but it is his mission to warn people of the impending apocalypse.

    Oddly enough, there is no such thing as “locally sourced” food in the cities and suburbs… where leftists live.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Some 80% of Americans live in suburbs and cities. And locally sourced doesn’t mean in your back yard.

      • Dana says:

        In a lot of ways, it does. Locally sourced means I could have a lot of corn, but potatoes, rice and citrus fruits simply aren’t locally produced. Rice has been my main ‘staple’ food since I was a kid, since my father was from Hawai’i.

        My mother, on the other hand, was from Maine, where potatoes were the primary staple.

    Our esteemed host asked:

    Why don’t these people just mind their own business?

    Why, it’s because they know better than you how you should run your own life!
