She is clearly excited about her journey towards veganism. But I am puzzled as to how such an intelligent lady has allowed herself to be sucked towards this trend, which is not only damaging for young developing bodies, but also highly damaging to the global environment and in due course economy.
As for her comments regarding the meat and dairy industry, I would suggest she spends some time on a traditional mixed farm, including following the livestock through the abattoir and ‘dispatching’ process. I believe she would then stop spouting this nonsense.
Net zero is still high on the agenda despite awareness that the capacity for wind and solar power generation to fulfil the nations need for power, is unachievable.
Not only is it impossible for renewable sources of ‘power’ to generate enough electricity when required 24/7, for an economy based on all energy usage being electrified, it seems the matter of storage, a critical issue, is not being addressed.
The problems of trying to provide enough storage to back up a fully wind and solar system without nuclear and fossil fuels, are huge and costly. The matter should be top of the agenda for those pushing ‘net zero’, as wind and solar generators have substantial periods when they generate nothing or less that users demand.
Take for example New York. The cost to provide adequate storage would be $5.8 trillion, which is triple the total amount of GDP generated by that city. That is before costing the build for the systems to charge the batteries. Tesla-style batteries cannot hold charge for months on end. As the experts say, ‘that seems at this point just a minor quibble’, but one which should surely be added to that agenda.
We are clearly facing an “extremely serious” global food crisis. In fact, the boffins tell us it has already begun and is going to get worse in the months ahead.
Should we worry that Joe Boden has recently said that food shortages are “going to be real”? His administration is now using the word “famine” to describe what is coming to many parts of the world, due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Not only are many Western countries expecting prices to rise in retail chains by 20 – 50 per cent, but we already face shortages of flour, milk, eggs and sunflower oil.
Last Tuesday, BlackRock Inc. President Rob Kapito told an audience in Austin, Texas, that an entire younger generation is quickly finding out what it means to suffer from shortages, according to Bloomberg.
A Russian official has warned that his nation will soon only export food to “friendly nations”. Other than China one wonders who these ‘friendly Nations’ will be once those who have been fed ‘fake news’ wake up to realise exactly how ‘Putin’s war’ has broken every rule in the book driven by his depravity, brutality, and venom.
“Ukraine has compounded a catastrophe on top of a catastrophe,” said David M Beasley, the executive director of the World Food Programme, the United Nations Agency that feeds 125 million people every day. “This crisis is going to affect every man, woman and child on the entire planet”.
Easter is a ‘happy’ time of the year. Families gather, birds are nesting, lambs are gambling in the fields, and our young stock will be turned out for the summer.
Has someone had a word with our hens? They have since last week decided to produce four eggs a day. So, for now Audrey is off the menu!
