Well, they’ve banned beef. Not specifically burgers. The world hasn’t gone mad parm, but if we dont do something soon then there won’t even be a world to go mad.

Beef farmers seem to be a soft target

I saw a picture of FB of all the airplanes over Europe at any given time, but its the cows that are killing us

People are being led down the garden path on the impact that such things have, and the every little helps argument is complete tosh

Here we are leaving the EU likely without a trade deal with our nearest neighbours and setting up trade deals with countries on the other side of the world. That has a huge impact on the environment and not a single **** is being given.

All of it - all of our efforts here, the farming industry, air travel - is for nowt if the developing nations where more than half of the global population lives doesn't sort out their industrial emissions. Which is very unlikely to happen in time. just be thankful that the **** won't REALLY start to hit the fan within our lifetimes.

Oh yeah, I forgot one university ending their beef sales will save the world.

Beef production in the West is meaningless compared to the pollution in third world/developing nations.

Well with that mindset, we should continue using plastic straws because everyone else does, or continue buying single use plastic because other people do. And then screw our planet even more.

And just because beef production is less significant in comparison to pollution elsewhere, doesn’t mean that’s something that doesn’t have to change. Every little step towards saving the environment helps - doesn’t matter if it’s one person using refillable cups or a whole university cutting out beef.

They would have been better banning prawns...they have a larger carbon footprint than beef.

That's just completely incorrect, and it's brainwashing

Saving the environment will only come from getting countries to cut back on their industrial emissions. Nothing else will make a difference. Nothing else will save the planet

Personally, i think it will be self regulating. As the planet has more areas that become uninhabitable through climate change, the population will be killed off and therefore pollute less

Except the places which will become uninhabitable first are the ones wiphich cause the least pollution as it is, so really youíre just suggesting killing off half the planet for no reason. Good logic there.

No it's not, and people should stop kidding themselves that it will. It's misinformation

Carry on dropping litter, using single use plastics and recycling incorrectly then. See how far that gets you.

f.y.i itíll get the planet uninhabitable quicker than you can imagine

you are completely missing the point. You not eating a beef burger means zero when 1.4 billion Chinese are scoffing their faces with them. The little bit of help you are doing for the planet means nothing and when you multiply everything up to the scale of industrial nations its an exponential jump again.

So many people have fallen for the rubbish spewed about the environment, its really shocking
