I am guessing that you are a vegetarian? You have that anti KFC thing as your sig too....

Sorry if my assumption is wrong but anyway i don't think people will stop eating meat because of that. It is a shocking report and has figures which are from quite reliable sources but still i feel that people will not change their diets.

I'm a vegetarian! I hate meat, killing animals is wrong just for food, plus KFC is a crummy place that serves crap, processed food, IMO anyway...

I totally agree with that article, if people ate less meat or none at all it would really help the enviro.

I'm sort of a vegetarian... I dont like to eat meat, mainly because i dont really like the taste of it. But I will eat meat occationally cuz I feel like crap if I dont! I dont believe that killing animals is wrong just for food however, as we've done it since the dawn of humanity. :| But.. hmm I dont know we've been producing meat like that for a while, I cant see why its only suddenly making a problem?

I eat meat probably daily and don't think there's anything wrong with it. However, I am against places where animals are used for meat in such a brutal way. KFC are like this. I remember watching some vid that showed how in some places chickens were like, fed like mad so they became huge or something like that. Basically torturing the animals before killing them.

Mummy only buys free range stuff :)

Here's how I put it:-

We consider ourselves more ''superior'' to animals right? So we eat them right?

Well imagine if something more superior than us came along and started breeding us to kill; we wouldn't like it would we :?:

But everyone has the right to their own opinion. :D

Yes, but humans have a different state of consciousness that separates us from the rest of the world... it's why we rule the world and the animals don't. :) There's a food chain, and we're at the top of it. We eat animals, they eat each other. And sometimes we do even get eaten by other animals, bears and whatnot. :P We're just lucky no animal poses a major threat to us.


As for that article... I'm sure it's got some grounding in it, but if there's anything I've learnt from what the media reports, it's that everything causes global warming and everything causes cancer. When it comes to global warming, obviously everyone needs to do their bit, but I somehow seriously doubt the article will make one blind bit of difference. For millions of people, meat is a staple and important part of their diet. I won't stop eating meat because of it... it's an important part of my diet for me, and me stopping eating it is not going to stop all the transport and the factories that surely pump far more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere...

Global warming is a fact of life at the moment, encouraging the world to stop eating meat isn't going to change that if you ask me. They need to spend time looking at other ways to reduce emissions the farms emit, which apparently has been reducing anyway!

Funny how it doesnt mention the global warming caused by tractors ploughing up carrots spuds and what have you. Also all the farts humans do after eatting beans and Brussel sprouts.

I had a KFC on Wednesday, it was **** lovely. :D

I like meat. I like leaving the TV on whilst on my laptop just to create atmopshere. I like leaving my phone charger on and leaving lights on when people aren't in a room so my house feels safer.

And if Global Warming is the consequence of my extravagance - so be it.

There was a report recently saying that instead of eating cattle, we should eat kangaroo instead. Kangaroo's apparently give off much less methane than cows do. Suprisingly cows contribute massively to global warming!

To be honest, I think that global warming occurs naturally. We're just helping it get there. I cant see a way of global warming being halted or reversed

Ill have to check up on it but as far as I am aware the Earth has been cooling now since around 1999, we are over due an ice age by around 30 years!

Im off to go and have some steak and chips.

Apparently we developed these teeth as part of revolution over hundreds of years, originally I don't believe we had them...

Just don't complain 20 years down the line when your house is flooded out due to rising sea levels from the melting ice - thats all... :)

Also remember the saying ''Our children don't inherit the world from us, we borrow it from them''...so look after it. :)

You've been watching too much BBC news I suspect. :lol:
The world has been warming up cooling down for millions of years, these recent changes seem to be nothing compared to what has happened in the past that is documented.
If the world is changing then who are we to stop it? In millions of years time thanks to these eco lifestyles we may find that we've damaged the world even more. After all the oil and gas we use to day is a waste product of millions of years ago.
I think we should just adapt more to the climate and not try and fight it.
The suggestion that we stop eating meat taking the mick IMO.

:D :D

Lol!

Global Warming has always been inevitable, so whatever...

Wow, only 20 Years, Global Warming is fast!

:P

Btw, I love KFC no matter how it's made.

Global Warming. One of the most overhyped issues in the world today.

When the oil does run out, then the world comes to an end. We depend too much on oil and gas, and between the next 50 to 100 years, it'll run out. We have the resources though a complete accident so we shouldn't conserve them, we should treat ourselves in our life time. As for switching a light bulb off when you walk out a room, it's common sense. I'm not saving the world, just my fookin' energy bills are too damn high.

Whether we like it or not, resources will run out. It's an inevitability, we are only delaying it.

OK, somehow this topic has gone from talking about the state of the meat at KFC.......to global warming?

It's the same really at all of these fast food outlets, go in expecting the food to be crap, from a bad source and cooked in a dirty kitchen and if it is good, well consider it a bonus! :P

My solution is simple: raise your kids from birth not to eat meat and you won't have a problem, their not gonna miss it if they've never had it before are they? :)
