Silent But Deadly


Barn'aple Fair.

Then sing of Barum, merry town and Barum's merry mayor too
I know no place in a'l the world old Barum to compare to.

Apparently, this is fun: spinning through the North Devon evening after scarfing hot dogs, chips, candy floss, chocolate, fizzy drinks and possibly a nip or two of something stronger. Still, no worse than visiting McDonald's.

By burning waste from McDonald's "restaurants" around Sheffield, the company claims it is making a green contribution. Power for just 50 homes (according to green groups; McD's says 130 "buildings") from a menu of products that already has a staggering environmental impact as well as superfluous packaging. Each McD's produces 100 tonnes of waste a year: tackle the unnecessary waste first.

Vegetarian Society launches its "Silent But Deadly" campaign - i.e. what comes out of the bottoms of cows ain't good. "Farmed animals produce more greenhouse gas emissions (18%) than the world's entire transport system (13.5%)." Green fields: pretty, but not so green.

Yeuch. I'm not loving it.
