Plus everything would be too expensive, and everyone would probably starve, and just create more problems.

So yeah, it would be a pretty shitty situation in general.


And, as vegetarians themselves tell us, methane from the manure of unregulated ungulates with no predators would only make the global warming problem more catastrophic.

Maybe some carrot-eater wants to burn up the planet, but I don't!

I'm too lazy to write up a whole new post for a topic we've basically seen before. So, I'll quote myself!

Au contraire my ecologically-minded friend.

The average cow produces between 100 and 500 liters of methane gas per day, a substance that is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide in terms of global warming, and there are approximately 1.5 billion of these terrible creatures polluting Earth's atmosphere.

We should all do our part to combat global warming by eating as many of these delicious... I mean, environment polluting creatures as possible.

So, in short, the seas would heat up, killing the vast majority of marine life. Due to the melting icecaps the seas would also rise and swallow us all, thus ending all life as we know it.

Do you really want the world to end? I thought not, have another slice of bacon.

All the plants would disappear and the animals that eat them would follow.
Then the animals that eat those animals would go.

Personally I do not believe in global warming( and Im not here to go against anything, just my opinion) I believe in climate change. Though we can attribute to harming our surroundings with all of the gases we create and emit, ultimately polluting our clean air, it still won't stop our seasons from occurring, until we actually begin to shift climate change from our actions. We can continue to burn up as much as we want, but I believe that you cannot possibly deny the natural flow of the seasons, unless our planet becomes completely toxic that we can't even breath our own air. They may differ from year to year in terms of how harsh they are, but that doesn't mean it's caused by global warming. You know, like green energy, but how much we actually burn and vent out into the air when we make such technology. The suns only getting bigger and hotter, so you can't stop the inevitable, because I don't think it just stays the same.

Since there isn't any natural predators that could maintain a healthy coexistence, since we have driven them to near extinction so that we can control our own supply and demand, this idea is pretty bad.

I don't think we're stupid enough to pass a law against meat-eating and then instantly release a butt load of animals who have domesticated for centuries into the 'wild'. It would be bad for the ecosystem, the animals themselves and the farmers/businesses that deal in cattle rearing etc. since they suddenly lose their entire livelihood. It would probably be done very gradually; produce meat but don't replace that lost animal - sterilisation? Maybe keep a few for other commodities such as milk, eggs and wool. Though it's really not a feasible idea since it'll be real economic and social mess.

Honestly vegetables aren't that bad - they're pretty tasty T-T. Become a mistress or master of spices and they can be diverse and flavourful... T-T. I want to spread vegetable love, they get a lot of unjustified hatred T-T.

Until the Vegans decide to put a ban on milk, eggs and shearing, because it would be Mean.

And then, of course, the plant enthusiasts will bring up theories of plants having consciousnesses, at which point there will be nothing left for us but water.
Can water hurt you? Don't move to Flint.

Well for sure there would be a lot less cows, pigs and chickens. Probably end up killing them
all since they would have no use for humans. Within a decade they would be put on an
endangered species list.
