Air NZ should be forced to make the entire plane out of meat! Anything less than that is treachery!

I’m concerned I may live in a country where a vegan burger on the national airline is considered an existential crisis.

Air NZ should be forced to make the entire plane out of meat! Anything less than that is treachery!

And, and for those screaming about a vege burger on Air NZ – here’s the planet all that meat is melting…

    Bloody hell its winter in the southern hemisphere and its bloody freezing here and yet that maps says we are red hot. This is propaganda by the deep state. Here is a proper scientific analysis of the recent climate trends based on James Hansen’s original predictions 30 years ago without the hysteria: https://judithcurry.com/2018/07/03/the-hansen-forecasts-30-years-later/

    The Impossible Burger is made with genetically engineered ingredients that have not been approved and this aint going to find market favour apart from a few die hards (who will die hard from this frankenfood):

    Moral of the story: Think for yourself and if the powers that be tell you to believe one thing the truth is more than likely something else!

      Scenario C is just an excuse to clean up abit. The fact that this government got in and increasingly MPs who deny the existence of climate change get the purge, except in America where polictal donations is strong, just means we have a lot of excuses to clean house.

      I, too, have always been a firm believer that the best form of scientific analysis of world weather patterns is stepping outside my home and seeing what the weather is like in my particular neck of the woods. It certainly hasn’t been a particularly cold winter where I live so I guess that proves my theory that climate change IS happening.

      Watch out for them Lizard People, MM!

      Nope. It’s science. Thermometers, gas chromatographs, satellites, and other scientific instruments don’t lie.

      The weather may well be cold. But the climate is warming up. CO2 is increasing. Antarctic, Arctic, and Greenland ice is melting (as are our own glaciers).

      3.5 billion years ago, Cyanobacteria (green algae) transformed our atmosphere from poisonous nitrogen/methane to nitrogen/oxygen.

      We need to understand that human industrial and agricultural activity causes pollution. Some of it atmospheric. Just as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) – another anthropogenic gas – impacted on our Ozone layer.

      If we don’t clean up our act, as a species, the speculative fiction of “Soylent Green” will be sf-made-reality.

    So true!

  3. Mike the Lefty says:

    It is no more a “slap in the face” than the sight of beef, lamb, pork, etc. with a “product of Australia, China, etc on it.
    Those idiots had a splendid chance to talk up the locally made product as opposed to imported meat, but they blew it because they couldn’t see the forest for the trees.
    Another fail for Nathan “zero border controls” Guy.

    Our sheep are tellng me it is spring time now as they are lambing earlier this year from last week.

    The problem for NZ and its farmers is, they do not have the know how and technology to produce such artificial meat like products, and they are stuck with investments in the old kind of ‘hardware’ and knowledge, same as many in developing countries are stuck with the limited means they have.

    It is early days yet, whether and how much this generic meat business will catch on. It may of course, and then succeed, but do not forget, the ingredients for making artificial meat are plant based and other substances, that need to be produced also, some on land that also feeds animals.

    We may have more efficient production, ability to produce more, but with the population we have globally, and the one we will have after yet more growth, no matter what we do, it will be totally UNSUSTAINABLE, plant based food or a bit of original meat also.

    For NZ farmers the challenge is to sell their ‘natural’ products as top of the shelf ‘real stuff’, as compared to the ‘artificial’ stuff, so they will only gain, as the ones who can globally afford to buy NZ made products like beef, lamb, dairy products and so forth, they will certainly do so.

    Nothing will be lost for NZ farmers, nothing at all.

    Well,… I’m freezing my proverbial’s off in my lil’ sleep out , the rains gettin’ to me and I cant wait til summer again.

    Man made climate change? … hmmm Vesuvius, St Helens and Krakatoa might have something to say about that if they could speak… so too could all the extinct animals from the so called Ice Age… even though I believe a massive flood did most of the damage. And damn those Romans for cutting down all the trees in the Sahara.

    Climate change there will be, no doubt about it , – as there always has been , … as for its causative reasons,… I get a feeling mankind’s just a factor.

    If Mother Nature says ” I want that mountain removed”… removed it will be.

    ” I get a feeling mankind’s just a factor”.. Well of course they are.. if it was possible to have a mature debate/discussion on climate change without the idiocy which the reactionary soldiers of the corporate raiding parties deliberately politicising, and narrowing the issue down to misleading memes, then we would have known widely by now that the coming ice age was always going to arrive.. What is different this time is that the actions of humanity have brought that schedule forward by, possibly a millennia.. The Yellowstone caldera would render that irrelevant, but failing that particular extinction event happening, we have no one to blame but ourselves for shortening the time we have to adapt…
