tks Vegans are vegans because they say it is cruel to eat animals but OK to eat plants. Of all the forms of life on earth, only plants and their prokaryote cousins (lookitup) have the ability to capture energy from the environment, such as sunlight, and convert it into food. Not only that, but plants are also the primary means of carbon capture, yes all plants are busily removing deadly global warming prime suspect CO2 from the atmosphere. All the other lifeforms, including the cute little cows, sheep, piggies, rabbits etc., that Vegans don't want to eat are parasites, too lazy to create their own food, instead they just munch up the hard working members of the vegetable kingdom, not to mention polluting the atmosphere with CO2 and other greenhouse gases. Now where is the justice in that? If somebody broke into your fridge and scarfed all your food, you would call the cops. But this is exactly what the herbivorous species are doing to plants, not to mention all those Vegans.
Officially Canada is 100% metric, but in reality our heights are in feet, we weigh ourselves in pounds, but we buy our steaks in kilograms and put liters in our gas tanks. There are several good reasons to use imperial measure and some bad ones. The best reason for imperial is that we share many products with our imperialist cousins, the excitable states. Most of the stuff we buy, food weights or volumes, cooking temperatures, building products are manufactured, measured and sold in feet, inches, gallons, quarts, liquid ounces or in Canada as awkward conversions to metric no one uses, such as a 3.78 liter one US gallon can of paint. A bad reason to use imperial might be old fartism, of which I could be guilty. When I learned to measure it was in imperial, but stick with me a for a moment. When the 18th century enlightenment era philosophes (bored French rich people) contemplated ridding society of archaic measuring standards, such as the length of some long dead king's f
This is a test. Which of these three vehicles do you think was responsible for the most carbon dioxide emissions per year in Alberta? Each vehicle was listed for sale in the Alberta Kijiji on line marketplace in late April 2021, cherry picked by the Red Neck to make a point. So if you smell a rat, you are correct. The Tesla is only four years old as this is written, but has managed to rack up an impressive 171,000 kilometers. The little Civic is also extremely well used, 480,000 km and counting. The truck on the other hand, has accumulated 82,327 km over 7 years, which for Alberta means it's mostly a lawn ornament. Comparison will use the average mileage, or kilometerage per year for each vehicle, so the Tesla's impact will be based on 42,750 km per year, Honda has been motoring along for 15 years, so 32,000 km PA, the dumb truck could only manage 11,761 diesel burning km a year. But wait the Tesla is electric, so zero emissions right? Well no, not exactly. Batter
