Do you hate the environment and eat food by your local, greedy and lazy (uses tractors to plow instead of doing it by hand unlike Africans) farmer?

All I give a shit about is taste and freshness. The environment can burn for all I care. I don't have that many more years left in me.

What sorcery do the Kiwis use that reduces their agricultural carbon footprint?

UK's growing season is probably terrible due to long cold winters.

They probably need to spend considerable amounts of energy heating and maintaining greenhouses to extend the grow season.

it's well known that "local" has lost all meaning in this age.

An example of this would be the Amish. The government had to step in literally make them clean up their mess.

I thought most people supported local farmers and shit because 1) it can taste fresher and 2) it supports the local economy instead of some corporation based halfway across the country

Who the fuck thinks food being grown closer is automatically better for the environment

So you understand comparative advantage?

>Transportation is only one component of the total environmental impact of food production

No fucking shit?! Did they do a follow up study to prove that water isn't the only liquid that could be considered wet, and the sky may not be blue at all times of the day?

Winters in the UK are not particularly cold and not particularly long. They're not even particularly wet.

Locavorism is retarded from an environmental ethics standpoint. Most of the waste in food production comes from inefficient methods of farming and large amounts of food deemed unfit for human consumption because of minor defects being discarded, not transportation.

Why should I give a fuck?
>>
There are far more personal vehicles out there than combines and other tractors doing farm work. It's a useless study. If you add up even the people walking and smoking it probably is more of an environmental risk than farm machinery exhaust.

Irrelevant and wrong.

And liberals want to make farming more inefficient by banning GMOs so we will have even more deforestation. I wish we could Holocaust all fucking hippies.
