    According a report in the Holy Guardian, CHOCOLATE production consumes the most amount of freshwater, even more than beef.

    https://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2013/jan/10/how-much-water-food-production-waste

    So no more chocolate all you activists!

    No more beef or lamb ether.
    Pork is super bad for you so cut that out.
    And even chicken is out.

    You can only drive a car if it’s electric AND you only fuel it from electricity made from demonstrably proven renewable sources.

    Alcohol is poison and expensive so that’s out too.

    No more fly-drive holidays...no more flying at all. Be like Greta and make friends with a rich person who has a boat and a crew capable of sailing you...THINK “WWGD?” - jeez!

    So when you are out shopping for Christmas, no buying CHOCOLATE for the kids or grandkids.

    Happy days!

    Too much chocolate makes me write rambling, incoherent posts. I'm switching to taffy.

    I had to look up what taffy is. If it’s what I think it is then I would stay off it as it’s full of chemicals and hyper high in sugar. It’s the sweets version of heroin.

    No, stay at home, work from home, eat salad and tofu.
    Live long and prosper.

    actually this tabkle they posted is skewed.

    So 1kg pork consumes less water than one Kilo Cotton, but they put Cotton down the list.
    Same for tea, they refer to one Cup of tea using 27 litres of water. If we stay at the comparison per kg is should be more than 10000 litres of water per kg of tea...

    I really don't think it had anything to do with the chocolate....Unless of course you eat chocolate every time before you post! 😛 😉

    Electricity is off, unless you can prove you generate it locally and consume it on-site.

    Some would argue that point over the internal combustion engine.

    Trump recently said water was being wasted "it's just flowing out to sea".

    I gave up chocolate and meat for health reasons after being put on a low dose of Statins following a recent cholesterol blood test which was 6.4. I had managed to reduce it by 0.8 over three years. I now make do with dried fruit, honey and peanut butter.
