@That one Kota, haha if only it were that simple. The whole process of raising animals, processing the meat, packaging and transporting it takes a huge amount of CO2 . It's been estimated that going vegan reduces your carbon footprint more than switching to a hybrid car (for someone who drives a moderate amount). Just an FYI.. Oh and I'm not vegan. I just read a book in college called The Ethics of What We Eat. Veganism makes a lot of sense... But so does bacon. End rant.
@SmartFeller, bacon alone is a stronger arguement than veganism
@That one Kota, dang it, I was going to say that. If only I knew when updates were scheduled...
@SmartFeller, Then you realize that humans are omnivores and vegans only survive because of all the vitamins they have to take.
@SmartFeller, you must be fun at parties
@That one Kota, Plants are what food eats. My ancestors didn't get to the top of the food chain so I could eat salad. (But I will admit to a fondness for steamed Brussels Sprouts with my steak, enhances the flavor. But that's just me.
@SmartFeller, I give you this metal for saying what I was just about to say
@CriTiKa1, common misconception! No one should take vitamins unless their doctor indicates otherwise. Vegans can easily get enough protein from beans and nuts. Even whole grain bread with peanut butter on it is a complete protein, meaning it has all essential dietary amino acids. Yes we are omnivores, but this isn't out of absolute necessity!
@Mycomputerbroke, thanks! What kind of metal? I prefer titanium ;)
@SmartFeller, wow you really are a smart feller haha
@Mycomputerbroke, haha why thank you! You're a nice feller :)
@SmartFeller, We just need to eat every thing.
@SmartFeller, I do try! :P haha it is much better than being a jerk
@SmartFeller, oh and hybrid cars are shirt for the environment btw
Yeah, other than the bajillion square miles of rainforest being cleared to make room for more cows
I just eat McDonalds and pizza rolls. What does that make me?
@Katara, that makes you from the 'Nited States.
@Katara , that makes you 'Merican
@Katara , human
@Katara , An American
@Katara , diabetic
@Katara , obese
@Katara , my best friend
@hard mickeys fingers, we just learned that America is vastly different than the stereotypical people who love in the United States, come on.
@pimpinpenguin, let me ask you then, do we sing "United States the Beautiful", or "AMERICA the Beautiful"?
@Percy Goddam Jackson, I already upvoted but I just wanted you to know that this is my favourite comment on Funny Pics in my 6 years here. May or may not be from delerium due to a lack of sleep, but regardless, you made me happy!
That last part should read "I eat animals who produce CO2 and who also eat CO2 reducing plants" because as I read it hes eating both Animals and Plants. Sorry it was just annoying the sh!t out of me (which is good cause Im pooping but bad for my head)
@Dragondoot, oh or how about "United States Woman"? "God bless the United States"?(Not to be confused with God Bless the USA) how bout "Livin in the United States", or "Kids in the United States".... I think ive proved my point.. Now i will find you, and I will kill you.
@Niam Leeson, wow i might as well have shot myself in the foot... This was for an above comment
@Niam Leeson, what are you even talking about? I will burn you alive with my dragons fire!
@Dragondoot, ill strap broken bottles to my hand and die bravely then...
@Niam Leeson, Niam Leeson VS the Dragondoot. Place your bets

I'm all for eating meat but animals that produce CO2 and other natural CO2 producers are necessary on this planet to provide the atmosphere with the greenhouse gases it needs to provide the Earth's surface with warmth and keeping us alive
@Reiner Braun, meh. Possibly a better argument for a need for CO2 is that it is requires for photosynthesis. We need photosynthesis for the plants we eat, and the things we feed out future bacon!
Every day millions and millions of poor innocent plants are killed by vegans. Please do your part to help end the violence.
I don't get it. He's just making more Co2
Being vegan is a huge missed-steak. Get it, cause... mistake... *runs through door*
@obligatory comment, sorry, I thought that was a good joke
@obligatory comment, it is but it was posted on a pic a while back.
@Dragondoot, I know, that hasn't stopped other commenters ;)
@obligatory comment, I dont think your supposed to explain puns either. I dunno man
I am far from vegan but if you think about it, it doesn't make much sense. The only reason there are as many animals left in the world is because we allowed it or breed them for farming. Meat eaters have put more animals on the world to eat, if they hadn't done that then there wouldn't be as many giving off the CO2. So if we just ate plants, there would be more of it, creating more oxygen
I eat vegans. I am a superhero
@Scarypoliceman, I murder vegans! What does that make me?
I eat vegans...
Not to mention that vegans eat the animal's food, forcing them to starve, and by eating the animals, we thin their population so they don't overpopulated and all starve
@Jerry McGhoulberry, or we could stop force breeding them...that might stop over population too...
@I volunteer, if you think about it we've saved many species like that
420th like I will collect my snoop dog prize now
One problem being that animals eat more plants than we do meaning you are doing just as bad for the environment if not worse
One problem being that animals ear
Really? Plants produce oxygen, not CO2. This is why we want trees and plants. They produce oxygen. Not CO2
@Scott787, Like everyone else, I read it wrong.
Except vegans aren't the only people who eat plants so...
But then there's photorespiration.
Good point, but why this meme?
I keep reading CO2 reducing plants and go What?
