    Although I am nearly Vegan, I didn't vote, because I don't own a Tesla... :crying:

    Re: carnivore: Some people pointed out that when they bike and live on a meat-only-diet, their carbon footprint per mile is worse that driving a gas guzzler.
    To that I reply, the last humans living carnivorous were the Neanderthals and they are extinct today. With indications that they couldn't adapt to climate changes...

    Isn't that like being nearly pregnant? It's pretty much a yes or no condition....

    There is a spectrum of efficiency in consuming resources ( and causing pollution ) along which EVs, hybrids and ICE cars lie. Using the minimal resources may not be practical - but choosing to consume less by using a hybrid or en EV is worthwhile.

    If you believe that the consumption of inefficiently produced/transported foods is a similar resouce problem, then reducing your usage even though you may not reduce it to zero is also worthwhile.

    Being an omnivore doesn't mean you'll eat anything put in front of you, calling myself a vegetarian is the easiest way to express my eating preferences.

    Vegetarian that doesn't drink milk, doesn't generally eat eggs, but likes the occasional cheese, & yogurt.
    No meat, and limited dairy products, but a full Vegan wouldn't have any dairy at all.

    Probably being obvious here, but carnivores eat animal products exclusively. So, "omnivore" describes most Americans.

    "Apple pie?"
    "No, sorry, I'm a carnivore."

    Most have animal products in the crust (lard), or in the filling, (pectin), unless you pay more and buy the veggie style.

    Sometimes I encounter people that call themselves Vegetarians but still eat fish...

    In your car? Is that some sort of Vegan-sadism? Do they survive?
