Re: Intro post

Perhaps I have stepped into the wrong environment, however. I have, since registering, read a few threads that indicate an anti-deontological tendency on this board, and this is at times worded in very immature, disrespectful ways. I think I have little choice but to seek like minded, consistent ve...

Re: I don't really want a car but I guess I'm gonna have to get one

I have a difficult time wrapping my head round this one. you say that
1. you hate cars and driving
2. they're dangerous
3. expensive
4. environment-unfriendly
5. you prefer public transport

but you're still getting one because your mom says so?

Re: "Going" green

Not working for money (when you have that choice) could be seen as a very selfish action. Are you saying you work for money just to give it away? Are you saying it's selfish to live in a self-sustainable fashion, taking money out of the equation? Is it even a bad thing, to be selfish? Now that I th...

Re: "Going" green

Timewise, this takes probably less than five minutes daily to manipulate the buckets. Sometimes you can see the beauty in low-tech. I certainly can. What about company coming over and not knowing how to use them? This is a great opportunity to teach others what simple measures they can take to save...

Re: "Going" green

Definitely worth installing a greywater system instead of using buckets, though, it's all pretty inconvenient and you have to consider the value of your time (including the environmental value, given the opportunity cost of outreach or other environment-saving measures you could be taking instead)....

Re: "Going" green

Here's what I do to minimize flushes: I save greywater in buckets and use that water for flushing the toilet. I set a bucket in the bathtub under the tap, good for washing hands, veggies and fruit. Have a wide container I use for collecting water during a shower inside the bathtub. Water from the wa...

Re: Evaluation of Carnivore Diet Video

I'm not getting into a diet debate. Sorry for the OT, but I have to: Hypothetically, IF it should turn out that e.g. meat only is the healthiest diet, does it mean we should eat it? (I don't want to go into who'd be that authority determining that hard fact either) Similarly, IF it should turn out t...

Re: I am trying to understand veganism, as a whole, and my partner.

sykkelmannen: Thank you for your response as well. Now, your analogies! In order to not compare oranges to apples, you cannot compare what been harm to HUMANS with ANIMALS. They are not the same, therefore, that analogies are irrelevant. Use the wrong and not to well-thought-out analogies will only...
