Professor Adisa Azapagic reached that conclusion in her press statement on January 18 in her role as head of the Sustainable Industrial Systems research group for the university. She says the carbon footprint is huge from the making and packaging of the sandwich and it is just another thing that must be changed. And to make it even worse, she says that major reduction of certain sandwich contents will be necessary, including meat, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. Wow, Professor, you're really leaving us with some great choices, aren't you? Of course, there's nothing like a tasty alfalfa sprout or tofu sandwich, is there? On the other hand, they'd probably love it in California.
Let's see, in recent years we've been told that "loaded" coffee is bad, but decaf is good and, of course, we all remember when they recommended margarine instead of butter. That, of course, has gone by the wayside since, think about it, why would you eat something to replace butter that stays pretty solid under heat?
But, now, the sandwich. We are supposed to sacrifice it for sustainability of the earth, except what good is the earth if its inhabitants are starving to death. Maybe they just want us to eat grass like the starving people of North Korea who sacrifice their very existence so that a dictator can develop nuclear bombs.
How about we sustain the earth while we sustain the people who live here as well? No one is going to accept sandwiches without something tasty in them and sandwiches are one of the best ways to feed people under widely varying circumstances. Furthermore, carbon is a critical element to life itself, so why are we trying to eliminate it? Not to worry, I'm sure the globalists will come up with a worldwide breathing tax at some point to punish us for breathing. As time goes on, we can see they don't leave out much else.
Gee, I wonder what the group at Davos would say about no meat, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. They would, of course, be highly upset, but then again, the rules don't apply to them. If they did, there wouldn't be several thousand fuel guzzling jets parked at the airport to take each of these titans back home in an otherwise empty plane.
Let's stop the madness and apply some common sense. We might start by realizing that science is not, nor has it ever been, a consensus subject. The best way to make sure it returns to its logical basis is to take the politics out of the subject. If we did, we'd have a lot less professors like the one from Manchester pushing her rot.
