Is there a rule somewhere that says every animal rights activist who makes a statement that at least one other person is going to read/hear has to be a total moron? That’s the only way I can explain how anybody could possiblyhave a problem with British supermarkets using unsold expired meat to create electricity rather than sending it all to the landfill.Seriously, when the unused stock from just one grocery chain is enough to power 600 homes for a year without having to pillage the earth for fuel or dump a 5000 ton burden on it, how do you turn that into a negative with a straight face? I understand that you’d rather we didn’t kill animals for food, but get over it. They’re yummy, they’re nutritious, and we ended up with the weapons and the barbecue sauce. That’s just how it is. We raise them for food,and if they’re not going to be food they might as well be something that’s going to help somebody, which they can’t very well do by sitting and rotting in a giant hole. And if you’re concerned that it’s just animals we’re doing this to because we’re cruel, I’ll go you one better. We need to figure out a way to do the same with all of the people we’re cremating. I’m not trying to be funny or controversial or disrespectful to the dead when I say that, I’m being serious. If there’s a way to do it, we should. If there’s a way for me to be more useful in death than being locked inside a tree carcass and chucked in a pit, count me in. I figure it’s the least I can do for the planet that’s given me so much in life.
