    There were millions of buffalo before we exterminated them. Are there more cows now? What’s the difference to the environment.

    Cloned meat is more expensive and environmentally destructive than meat. Why bother when you can just go on a plant-based diet and save the world?

    If those who eat meat tried to force change upon a vegetarian, there would be protesting and months of news coverage, on the insensitivity of those trying to change a vegetarians or vegans way of life. Why aren’t we focusing on the carbon footprint from factories or the 1.2 billion cars that pollute everyday. There are over 900 million dogs and over 222 million cats almost equivalent to the number of cattle and they’re farting everyday, are we complaining about getting rid of them?

    Am ok with not eating meat but I don’t think recreating the taste of meat is the solution. You don’t stop being bad to people only to go do it at home to your family and consider yourself a better person

    …or, you know, we could just hold corporations accountable for their own massive impact on climate AND enjoy our meat. Just a thought.

    The problem with these Meat alternatives is that most taste really bad and those that don´t taste bad are expensive as hell, at least here in Germany. Furthermore they only taste passable. In order to make these Meat alternatives a genuine alternative you have to produce them in a large quantity with a good enough taste and cheap prices, so that financial weaker household can replace their intake of proteins with these.
    That alone is a herculean task, but even if we succeed in this process there are new problems. For exaple all these plants would then need to be cultivated in larger quantities. We already witness how in certain parts of the world there is a lot of deforestation in order to make space for soy production. This problem would only increase.
    While I think there is a lot of sense in developing decent meat alternatives, I don´t think you can make major climate impact with it.

    The impossible whopper from burger King was the best salad I’ve ever had! As soon as it costs as much or cheaper than a regular burger I’ll just switch to that.

    The Impossible Whopper freaked me out. Granted, I’ve not had a real burger in almost a decade, but I was pretty sure they’d just charged me double for a regular burger. I’ll just stick with the burger-ish ones from the frozen section that will cost you 1/4 as much.
