My Climate Actions
Even if you don’t care what happens to a cow, you have to worry that “growing” a pound of beef takes tens of pounds of corn, and many gallons of water. In other words: cows==bad. Good thing that there are plant-based burgers that taste as good as the “real” thing. Replacin g your beef with this reduces emissions by 96 percent, see links below.
So what are the possible arguments against it? Some people say “there is a lot of salt in it”. That’s kinda true, but it’s only an argument if you don’t put salt on your regular burger patty. So I only put some pepper on my Beyond Burger, and the result is extremely tasty.
No more cows will be harmed in my household.
Cows are really bad for the climate, so let’s ditch the cow milk. Some people go for oat milk, but I’ve settled on flax milk. It has a slightly more pronounced flavor than oat milk, but it really doesn’t matter to me, as long as it’s a plant-based milk, not animal-based. Oh, and almond milk is almost as bad as cow milk, so forget about that too.
Cut down on car use
I can easily bike to work in less than 20 minutes. On my Dutch Gazelle electric bike.
Vegan ice cream
Damn if Van Leeuwen isn’t the creamiest ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Truly good stuff. Who needs cows?
No more funding fossil fuels
Chase bank is one of the worst in funding the fossil fuel industry. I cut up my Southwest Visa, even though I still like Southwest airlines. My principles count for more than my rewards miles.
