All I could do is laugh and shake my head whenever I think about all the people who are very critical and quite anal about being vegan (by anal I mean condemning others who aren’t vegan), who claim they live clean and live green, who love the Earth, and are environmentally cautious and all that, yet they drive a big, loud, growling, fire breathing, turbocharged, V8 that gets about 10mpg.
Good on you, mate. Veganism made you save up so much money, you found another way to harm the planet. How’s it feel sitting on leather seats that came from 3-15 cows? Not to mention wood trim that surrounds your dash and door-pulls, and not to mention, the sheepskin that lines the roof.
You do realize that animal agriculture contributes to global warming more than all of transportation combined, right? Animal agriculture is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, environmental disasters of our time. Not to say that we shouldn’t be concerned with the effects transportation has on the environment or anything but it’s just interesting how people love to find any possible fault they can in veganism (usually involving things that are nearly impossible to avoid) just so they can feel better about continuing to participate in the incredibly-easy-to-stop-participating-in-exploitation of animals via our food production system.
Also, it’s pretty damn easy to find cars without leather seats or sheepskin in the roof. Plus how often does someone purchase a car? Once every couple years? How often does someone have to eat? Usually three times a day.
