    Silly, but eye-opening info-graphic

    My main source of protein (peanut butter) is apparently super low emissions! haha

    I'm surprised that cow milk is as low as it it!

    I know! Very surprising. I was also surprised how high my beloved rice is. I thought rice would be below peanut butter.

    What's the source of the data represented in that graphic?

    It seems unlikely that a fish I catch right off my back porch here, and cook up 5 feet from where I caught it, has a higher carbon footprint than tofu made Somewhere Else and shipped over here.

    And that lamb in the field next door, which will be eaten soon, also seems a better deal than peanut butter dragged across the country and stocked in the market.

    I believe it is based on this report by the Environmental Working Group.

    https://www.ewg.org/meateatersguide/...ental-impacts/

    You could trying calling them and explaining about the lamb next door to you, they might change the report.

    I can no longer eat lentils though I like them a lot. They put me in distress for days.

    It seems like the word is gradually working it's way into mainstream. There needs to be a shift in the way people think about food and it's effects on health, habitat, climate, and mainstream agricultural practices. Bill Clinton got at least one thing right.

    And now he looks like death warmed over. Have a cheeseburger, Bill, please!

    Bill claims that his diet saved his life. He may look better than actually being dead. Then again he's been reputed to commit perjury.

    A friend of mine opined that modern medicine saved his life; then he died. Call me skeptical.
