Is the humble sandwich a climate change culprit?

Scientists at the University of Manchester have found a surprising global warming culprit – sandwiches. In the first study of its kind, the researchers carried out an in-depth audit of various sandwiches throughout their life cycles and found the triangular meals could be responsible for the equivalent annual carbon emissions of 8.6 million cars in Britain alone.

According to the British Sandwich Association (BSA), the United Kingdom spends £8 billion (US$11.3 billion) annually on 11.5 billion sandwiches, with half made at home and the other half bought at shops, supermarkets, kiosks, and service stations. To better understand the environmental impact of all these sarnies, the Manchester team looked at over 40 different sandwich types, recipes, and combinations as well as how they are made, packaged, transported, and stored. In addition, they considered the waste produced in making them, as well as the stale, rotten, or simply outdated sandwiches that are thrown away.

What the researchers found was that not all sandwiches are created equal and that some varieties have larger carbon footprints than others. The highest footprint was found in premade, prepackaged, all-day-breakfast sandwiches. These contain eggs, bacon, and sausage and are kept packaged and refrigerated until sold and eaten – all of which is estimated to add up to 1,441 g (3.18 lb) of carbon dioxide equivalent, or roughly the same as driving a car for 12 miles (19 km).

After consuming one of these high protein goodies, one then repairs to the loo for relief or worse waddles off down the byway pooting like a mis-timed flivver.

 

By contrast, the smallest footprint is that of a homemade ham and cheese sandwich. Overall, making your sandwiches at home potentially halves the carbon emissions compared to their prepackaged equivalents.

According to the team, a number of factors affect the sandwich’s carbon footprint. Ingredients is one of them, with items like meat in general and pork in particular, cheese, prawns, lettuce, and tomatoes being particularly large footprint culprits. Producing these ingredients, as well as the bread and condiments, can account for 37 to 67 percent of the carbon dioxide produced. Other factors are the packaging, which makes up 8.5 percent of emissions, transportation (especially in refrigerated trucks) for 4 percent, and refrigeration at point of sale making up another 25 percent.

In their efforts to prove social responsibility and deliver full employment, society winds up with this tripe as output. Nugatory at its best and totally wasteful for the norm.
Climate Change/Global Warming is the willow o’ wisp fronting for wealth redistribution. As per usual, that redistribution never goes sideways or down, only up. If you believe otherwise, stay out of the bridge buying business.

Damn! If it wasn’t for all this snow falling we could tell you about the dangers of Global Warming. But we can’t see the audience because of the six feet of fresh snow.

Scientists Get Buried In Snow At Davos While Lecturing On Global Warming

Scientists have once again set up a mock Arctic base camp to educate world leaders about man-made global warming at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Climate scientists hope their mock camp illustrates how global warming could impact the Arctic, but the “Gore effect” may make it harder to get the message across. Davos has seen frigid temperatures along with about six feet of snow in the last six days.

There was so much snow, authorities evacuated some neighborhoods due to avalanche concerns, CNBC reported. Global elites headed to the conference had to force their way through heavy snow drifts.

CNBC reported that “heavy snow had already blocked the rail line through the Alps from Zurich, and villages along the route were at the highest level of avalanche alert.” Davos visitors were forced off trains and onto “a half-hour bus trip on back roads around the blockage and then loading them onto a crowded red commuter train that ran the rest of the way into Davos.

“Scientific evidence on Arctic change is unequivocal and it is sending us a warning cry that has profound consequences and global risks,” scientists wrote in 2017. “Yet the risks from Arctic change remain invisible to the world’s most powerful decision-makers. We wanted to change that.”

You would think by now these fools would hold these “SHOWS” in places like Sub Saharan Africa whee it doesn’t risk snowing on their parade of goofy celebrities. Perhaps they can stand in front of a high sand dune showing where the glaciers have melted away.
Most of the chippies they have standing around in fur coats can’t even spell Climate Change
