Free Range Free Chat

Happy Monday News Viewers, this is Monday’s NV free chat, all the topics fit to print, especially those mysterious features of this planet that animates us, the universe that beckons us, and the life forms that simply try to survive us. On this first Monday of 2022, I’m realizing it’s Veganuary and we’re three days late. . . . time for an experiment in increasing consumption of plant based food .

Way to make the planet smile. . . .

“There are lots of different sectors that have an impact on emissions and the food system is surely one of the most important ones as it is globally responsible for about a third of all greenhouse gas emissions,” said Dr Marco Springmann, senior researcher on environmental sustainability and public health at the University of Oxford.

He added that the overwhelming majority of emissions were due to foods such as beef and dairy, which “means that without changing emissions associated with those products it is hard to make progress”. He said there were no good technical solutions for the fact that “cows emit methane emissions”.
