Do you ever experience ‘ climate shame ‘, for example when eating a piece of meat, booking an exotic air trip or buying a bunch of flowers?

No, totally not.For that, my consumption is just too low. I am a single and I live on myself and I just don’t need much. I don’t make long trips and I pay good attention to my groceries and prevent me from throwing food away. I have a maximum of 1 garbage bag a week to waste, often even less than that.

In any case, I do not find meat production at all so harmful.This is because the herd can be fed largely with residual agricultural products. The cultivation of cereals and maize, for example, actually only yields the seeds while the stems of these plants are very good to use as fodder. Idem for all vegetables and fruit that do not meet the high quality standards. Think of crooked cucumbers, which nobody wants to have. But cows have no problem with that. In this way, agricultural waste is basically recycled to another source of food.

Compared to many others, I can still break a jar in terms of the environment.:-)

No, and frankly nobody should ever experience that.

What a nonsense say, climate shame.So if I eat a piece of meat, should I feel guilty about it?

The climate is all well and good, but I am slowly getting sick of it that I am expected to be environmentally conscious.I am very fond of it when I buy a plastic bag at the supermarket. Is that because I am young? Because I’m studying? Because I honestly would not know what that has to do with it.

I know that something has to be done, but eat less meat or fly less because you feel guilty otherwise (because that’s what we are talking about here, other reasons we can discuss later) is not the solution for me.

First, take a nice piece of steak while you orient yourself in nuclear power stations and a local economy.We’ll talk to you.

Climate measures that are also effective are never introduced.The will to fly only one mile less, one kilometer less to go by car or one US less meat to eat is absent. Also among young people who are most concerned. Look, we elderly people will probably no longer experience the catastrophic consequences. I myself have no children, so after me the Deluge (pun intended). The youngsters of now will get the full blow. Certainly because the majority per capita flies and consumes even more than we used to be with the whole class or working group.

If I do not need young people to speak to their behaviour, but if they are going to live environmentally conscious because it is about their future, I am prepared to follow their example.However, I am not going to remember things myself if the generation that is going to get it refuses to do so.

Yes, I can’t really defend myself that I’m just flying too often because I like to see some of the world.That I do not eat meat and buy or use few other harmful products does not make the worsening of the problem good of course.

The shoot is over, but in the end I don’t see why I should be ashamed.At the same time, I realise that I am contributing to the whole by my consumption. Only I have nothing to do with the way economically everything as hard as possible molken (sorry, bad timing) should be in the name of the sacred economy.

Those obsession with economics and capital, there others have chosen., not me.

But in summary, I realise that I am part of it.That’s why I also make a positive contribution by consciously eating less meat.


In any case, I feel very little to do with the waves of selective indignation about my alleged negative impact, while the hard-hit callers often bypass the fact that huge large consumers remain out of the way and, on the other hand, despite their themselves to be much larger consumers.

Yes, a little, but one must also be realist, Rice gives the same amount of CH4 worldwide than cows, and also CO2 through longer transport.There is no milk or cheese without the 芒 鈧?艙byproduct芒 鈧?meat. Cows also eat grass, these are places where they are difficult to grow vegetables. Fresh vegetables (e.g. Tomatoes) contain a lot of CO2 in winter. Sometimes one must also move to propose other possibilities:…

This laptop and WiFi are now working on it, one could do much more without net injection and batteries: making batteries is also CO2, and the net can not save yet.And why shouldn’t roofs be full PV? One would indeed 芒 鈧?艙a many 芒 鈧?produce. Perhaps one should use it 芒 鈧?艙too many 芒 鈧?for trucks or ships: Drive on ammonia as an alternative to gasoline-visionary

One now makes small-scale nitrogen for tires, with hydrogen one does not know what to catch because it takes too much volume.Ammonia is a process without CO2 or CH4. Perhaps we should also shake people up and inquire about the possibilities, even if it costs some CO2?

Planes could fly 950 km electric on aluminum-air primary batteries: disposable BATTERY for CO2-free scheduled flights up to 950 kilometers

One can think of that than CO2 capting to make methanol and then isobutanol out to fly.But perhaps better not to fly more than 10000 km per year per person? It is worse to tour with a heavy car. An efficient aircraft is 3 litres/person/100 km, 78 gCO2/km/p, a Tesla has 3x more if one is to manufacture the battery. A large line bus where 4 people are seated at 40 liters/100 km: 260 gCO2/km/person. If one counts well, there is more than one CO2-corpse out of the closet. Vehicles should be about 3芒 鈧?”4 x lighter, or it will be purely electric.

The airport from which I depart, is located by the sea.Kuala Lumpur also (practically). I could go swimming. I do not do that anyway. I fly much less often than before, because I realise the CO2 emissions. Only 15%. I think so, but don’t be ashamed.
