“One kilo of beef protein has a carbon opportunity cost of 1,250kg: that, incredibly, is roughly equal to driving a new car for a year, or to one passenger flying from London to New York and back.”

@qyliss so you're saying car emissions don't matter
@qyliss the idea of "carbon opportunity cost" seems to fundamentally confuse stocks and flows; yes there's an opportunity cost to farming on some amount of land but it's a one time thing, and should be amortized over the total food production, not just one season's production or whatever.
