30 Bananas a Day!

I'm a long time vegan recently gone LFRV/HCRV.

I'm LOVING it so far, feeling amazing, vibrant, healthy... but I can't help but feel bad about how much imported food I'm consuming.

Coconut, mango, bananas, dates, avocado, almonds, raw cacao, agave, etc... SO delicious, but SO not from British Columbia!! haha

My partner is an organic farmer and we try really hard to do local in season foods wherever possible. We only buy organic - ever.

SO - that said, I realize I can't win every battle - I have to choose what is most important. Vegan, wheat-free and organic are non-negotiable in my books - but the sustainability of consuming all these delicious tropical foods has been nagging at me in the back of my mind.

Thoughts?

I feel the same. I think I'll have to move to the tropics to ease my guilt. :p

But for real.

It is said that if there is no road in front of someone, to build their own road.

There are about 7 billion people in the world and the tropics would not be able to sustain us all.  What might be more viable options are for people in their own countries to see what can be done.

For example, in the United States, the climate in what is called the middle south is very temperate, and many varieties of fruits can be grown in Florida, Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri.  It might be better if a few people stay behind to cultivate more in their homelands, to make fruit more readily available here, and to find ways to help bring the cost down.

I recently visited Canada, and at this time of year, one might think cold, and no way there is much fruit there.  But they had acres upon acres of greenhouses and even vineyards for wine making.  I know we do not promote drinking wine here, but when one thinks of grapes, they think of temperate Mediterranean regions.  

Just an idea and I have many hopes for the younger generation of which we have many here at 30BaD.  I dream that somehow they will figure these kind of issues out together:)

Peace, PK

Nice PK!

We could also come up with a fix for the earth's tilted axe so there will be winters no more!

Do you have any ideas for that, fixing the earth's axis? :D

That does sound easier than trying to teach people responsible procreation, and to start shifting towards warmer climates:) (1)

Altas Shrugged.

Peace, PK

lol PK, it might be easier :) or not:)

- one way to do it is to bump with another small planet or asteroid because that's what's caused the axis tilt in the first place - of course the outcome is unknown and there would be to much damage, so not a good solution..:(

- the other way if the scientist come up with some fix that would tilt it back slowly without much damage.. wouldn't that be nice? to have a whole tropical earth?!!!

My pal has some objections.

Jack,

Why?  He should be happy his Polar ice caps will be frozen back together.  He can also just shift a little bit south like the rest of us.

BTW, what would happen if polar bears and penguins lived in the wild together?  Would one eat the other?

Peace, PK

I think all of us should gather at one place on Earth and simultaneously jump. That should do it. 

lol

That's a good one Samaza! :)

:D

Stopping tilt would just stop the seasons.   It would still get colder the further away from equator.  Now how cold is an unknown.  I bet someone has figured it out.

Here's some info.  Temperature wouldn't change much.
