Ah now there’s the thing – we don’t want to reduce the carbon cycle but rather increase it and we are not the least interested in such foolish enterprises as “bioenergy” nor “carbon storage”. The only way the illusion of “value” for acting against our and other species’ best interest comes from the blatant lie that the foundation of life on earth is somehow bad. Continue reading
We need to eat less meat and recycle our waste to rebalance the global carbon cycle and reduce our risk of dangerous levels of climate change. New research from the University of Exeter, UK, shows that if today’s meat-eating habits continue, the predicted rise in the global population could spell ecological disaster. But changes in our lifestyle and our farming could make space for growing crops for bioenergy and carbon storage. Continue reading

Just when you thought the “pink slime” controversy was in the past and that the discovery of mad-cow disease had blown over, the forces that be now bring yet another cause for carnivore concern: calls for an investigation into ‘meat glue.’ Continue reading
