*  Carbon monoxide: A quantitative tracer for fossil fuel CO2? - heiDOK
Carbon monoxide: A quantitative tracer for fossil fuel CO2. Carbon monoxide: A quantitative tracer for fossil fuel CO2. Abstract Carbon monoxide CO, carbon dioxide CO2, and radiocarbon 14CO2 measurements have been made in Heidelberg from 2001 to 2004 in order to determine the regional fossil fuel CO2 component and to investigate the application of CO as a quantitative tracer for fossil fuel CO2 CO2 foss. The observations were compared with model estimates simulated with the regional transport model REMO at 0.5°x0.5° resolution in Europe for 2002. These estimates are based on two available emissions inventories for CO and CO2 foss and simplified atmospheric chemistry of CO. Both emissions inventories appear to overestimate fossil fuel emissions in the Heidelberg catchment area, in particular in summer and autumn by up to a factor of 2. Nevertheless, during meteorological conditions with high local source influence the CO/CO2 foss emission ratios compared well with the observed atmospheric CO/CO2 foss ratios. F...

... Recycling Today Media Group Events. Recycling Today. Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration OSHA began a more rigorous initiative, called the National Emphasis Program NEP, to make sure plants across all industries took the risks associated with combustible dust seriously. These standards are the basis for OSHA’s housekeeping regulations and its Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program. The tree basic questions important for recyclers are: What are the tolerance levels for combustible dust that best protect employees and assure compliance with regulations. Combustible dust had posed a hazard in Cintas’ document management shredding facilities across the country, therefore, when OSHA launched its National Emphasis Program on combustible dust, Cintas knew it needed a new strategy. Cintas installed the fans throughout its plants because key company personnel thought the fan systems could deliver higher levels of cleanliness more consistently than a manual approach.

Aerosols increased rapidly after World War II as fossil fuel use increased ~5 percent/year with little pollution control Fig. The rapid growth of fossil fuel CO2 emissions in the past decade is mainly from increased coal use Fig. 2 It is practically certain that still larger CO2 increases will soon be reported, because of the huge increase of the rate of fossil fuel CO2 emissions in the past decade black curve in Fig. An informative presentation of CO2 observations is the ratio of annual CO2 increase in the air divided by annual fossil fuel CO2 emissions, the airborne fraction Fig. Fig.3: Fossil fuel CO2 emissions left scale and airborne fraction, i.e., the ratio of observed atmospheric CO2 increase to fossil fuel CO2 emissions. The airborne fraction is affected by factors other than the efficiency of carbon sinks, most notably by changes in the rate of fossil fuel emissions.

*  DOE - Fossil Energy: How Fossil Fuels Were Formed
... Fossil Energy. How Fossil Fuels were Formed Contrary to what many people believe, fossil fuels are not the remains of dead dinosaurs. In fact, most of the fossil fuels we find today were formed millions of years before the first dinosaurs. Fossil fuels were formed from plants and animals that lived 300 million years ago in primordial swamps and oceans top. Over time the plants and animals died and decomposed under tons of rock and ancient seas middle. Eventually, many of the seas receded and left dry land with fossil fuels like coal buried underneath it bottom. They were formed from prehistoric plants and animals that lived hundreds of millions of years ago. When these ancient living things died, they decomposed and became buried under layers and layers of mud, rock, and sand. In some areas, the decomposing materials were covered by ancient seas, then the seas dried up and receded. During the millions of years that passed, the dead plants and animals slowly decomposed into organic materials and formed fo...

Faith communities divest from holdings in fossil fuel industry. The Christian Century. Faith communities divest from holdings in fossil fuel industry Jul 16, 2014 by Lauren Markoe Worried about global warming, a growing number of churches and other faith groups are divesting their holdings in fossil fuel companies that release large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Climate change poses a catastrophic threat, and as stewards of God’s creation we simply must act.” Jones talks about her seminary’s divestment from fossil fuel holdings as an act of repentance that may resonate well beyond the school. “The Christian term for this reckless hope in the power of God to use our decisions of conscience to transform the world is resurrection , and I have faith in the power of resurrection.” Other religious institutions that have recently voted to divest from fossil fuels include the World Council of Churches July 10 , the Unitarian Universalists June 28 , and the United Church of ...

A gas can and heat-generating equipment, such as water heaters and furnaces, is an obvious example. Fuel-Fired Equipment Vents and Combustibles The International Residential Code IRC and other building codes require maintaining a safe distance between fuel-fired equipment vents and combustible materials. The most common types of fuel-fired equipment are gas- and oil-fired water heaters, furnaces, and boilers. The most obvious types of combustible materials are wood and wood products, such as plywood and oriented strand board OSB. Less obvious combustible materials include flexible heating and air conditioning ducts and various forms of insulation. Gas-fired equipment that has a draft hood usually requires at least 6 inches between the draft hood and any combustible materials.

Fossil fuels like coal and oil emit carbon dioxide when they are burned, and the carbon dioxide traps heat in the Earth's atmosphere much like a greenhouse does. But in a less-noticed phenomenon, the burning of fossil fuels also emits sulfur dioxide particles, which scientists refer to as aerosols. A reduction in the burning of fossil fuels would reduce this cooling effect. Warming Could Be More Intense This means that global warming could be more intense than expected for up to three decades, Dr. Wigley found, after which the reduction in burning fossil fuels would begin to bring about a global cooling. The reason for the lag is that the effect of carbon dioxide reductions would be felt only over decades, since that is how long it takes them to work their way through the ocean-atm...

The government on Thursday announced its decision to limit the number of subsidized cooking gas cylinders to households to six a year. The government is already grappling with the issue of domestic gas cylinders being diverted for commercial use. The per kg price of domestic gas is lower than that used for commercial purposes and the difference encourages the diversion of cylinders for the home to users such as hotels, restaurants...

There s also been a long-demonstrated statistical link between that pollution and cardiovascular problems like heart disease. The researchers found that increased exposure to nitrogen dioxide went along with a roughly 5 percent increase in the mass of the heart s right ventricle, as well as changes in the blood flow through the ventricle. Although the link between traffic-related air pollution and left ventricular hypertrophy, heart fai...

The bright future of solar thermal powered factories. Main. Gas Bag Vehicles. Medieval smokestacks: fossil fuels in pre-industrial times The history of energy use in human civilisation is generally summarised as follows: from Antiquity until the start of the Industrial Revolution, people made use of the manual labour of both animals and humans, as well as biomass, sun, water and wind. Next, all these renewable energy sources were replaced by fossil fuels: first coal, and later oil and gas. Uranium completed the picture in the second half of the twentieth century. While this historical summary is basically correct, there were some - rather important - exceptions. Almost all of the leading economies in Western Europe during the last millenium relied on a large-scale use of fossil fuels such as peat and coal. Illustration: peat fuelled...

Energy. Nuclear energy fission is represented by Radioactive Man, and his sidekicks Solar Citizen and Wind Lad represent solar and wind power respectively. They’re made up of King Coal, Petroleumsaurus Rex, Charcoal Briquette, and the Fracker the names are likewise pretty opaque, with the characters representing coal, petroleum, charcoal, and the technique of fracking. The Industrial Revolution would’ve never occurred without ready access to coal, and the industrialized world still depends on it to a great extent. When these fuels burn, they oxidize releasing carbon dioxide and water and produce large amounts of energy relative to their weight. As these resources have become more scarce, new techniques have been developed to extract them from the earth, such as fracking technically called hydraulic fracturing, which uses controlled explosions to break up the bedrock where these fuels are held and surface mining which removes vast amounts of surface rock to gain access to minerals. After hundreds of millions...

Largest Oil Spill Of All Time: Really, this list could be mostly oil spills. The largest, in terms of volume of oil, was the Gulf War Oil Spill, in which Iraq opened the valves at its oil terminal and dumped oil into the Gulf, in an attempt to keep U.S. The largest accidental oil spill, in gallons, was Ixtoc I in Mexico, which dumped half a million tons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico and polluted 162 miles of U.S. Worst oil fire. Smoke from the Oil Fires dominated the weather throughout the Persian Gulf during 1991, filling the skies of cities as far away as Dhahran and Riyadh with smoke and carbon fallout. Worst beach spill of all time. But the worst is probably the Amoco Cadiz, which spilled 223,000 tons of oil off the coast of Brittany in 1978.

Bradford, 2005: Health and Climate Policy Impacts on Sulfur Emissions Control. Geophysical Review, 43 R6400, doi: 10.1029/2004RG000167 Sulfate aerosol from burning fossil fuels not only has strong cooling effects on the Earth’s climate but also imposes substantial costs on human health. To assess the impact of addressing air pollution on climate policy, we incorporate both the climate and health effects of sulfate aerosol into an integrated-assessment model of fossil fuel emission control. Our simulations show that a policy that adjusts fossil fuel and sulfur emissions to address both warming and health simultaneously will support more stringent fossil fuel and sulfur controls. The combination of both climate and health objectives leads to an acceleration of global warming in the 21st century as a result of the short-term climate response to the decreased cooling from the immediate removal of short-lived sulfate aerosol. In the long term more than 100 years, reducing sulfate aerosol emissions requires that we...

Vincent Carroll claims that burning fossil fuels is necessary because “Our civilization would collapse otherwise.” This sounds more like fear-mongering than a solution. No one is calling for a moratorium on fossil fuels tomorrow, but Carroll would rather we bury our heads in the sand than proceed with viable partial solutions, including public awareness. Global warming is a multigenerational, multifaceted problem requiring long-term solutions. Carroll promotes only futility in having us believe that nothing we do can make a difference.

And what about, “See the USA in your Chevrolet.” There’s something uniquely American about jumping behind the wheel and two hours later being 100 miles from wherever you started — it’s part of that fossil fuel narcotic. Yes, I’m part of the scourge of the Earth that owns an SUV — a four-wheel-drive SUV. Fossil fuel is limited. It is not renewable. Ninety percent of the hydrogen produced is produced from natural gas and other fossil fuels and its production is dependent upon fossil fuel. The majority of tractors, cultivators and combines used to plant, plow and harvest biomass for ethanol and biodiesel run on fossil fuel and then the product is blended with fossil fuel. Hopefully there will be environmental benefits that come with alternative fuels but at this point its hard to see through the smoke from the rain forests burned to plant palms for biodiesel. I will end my sojourn in the land of alterna...

Low emission futures are described by various B1 family scenarios, as well as in the A1T scenario group that describe futures in which NO x emissions are controlled because of either local air quality concerns or rapid technological change away from conventional fossil technologies. Overall, the SRES scenarios describe a similar upper range of NO x emissions as the previous IS92 scenarios 151 MtN versus 134 MtN, respectively, by 2100, but extend the IS92 uncertainty range toward lower emission levels 16 versus 54 MtN by 2100 in the SRES and IS92 scenarios, respectively.

... Lighting fixtures play a critical role in the safe, efficient, and productive operation of any industrial facility or production process. Lighting fixtures play a critical role in the safe, efficient, and productive operation of any industrial facility or production process. Hazardous environment lighting fixtures are designed to specifically handle the highly corrosive elements, combustible dusts, and flammable gases/vapors that are endemic to these industries. The National Electrical Code NEC and the Canadian Electrical Code CEC divide hazardous environment combustible dusts and flammable gases and vapors into three separate Classes. NEC/CEC Divisions define hazardous environments by the amount of exposure to the gases, vapors, dusts, or flyings/fibers. Division 1 classifies hazardous atmospheres in which the flammable gas or vapor or combustible dust is present during normal operations or routine maintenance. Enclosed and gasketed fixtures for Class I, Div. 2 fixtures must be sealed to prevent the haz...

Last week the ACC claimed that the Labor Department s Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA was moving forward with a regulation on combustible dust. They claimed that the proposed rule will only add onerous requirements to existing regulations. To start with, OSHA hasn t even proposed a regulation to address the hazards of combustible dust. Despite dust explosions and deaths at the Hoeganaes Corp in TN, AL Solutions in New Cumberland, WV, Imperial Sugar in Port Wentworth, GA, and other worksites, the Obama Administration has shown no sense of urgency to address the hazard with a regulation. In fact, the Labor Department s most recent regulatory agenda doesn t even include an entry on combustible dust. The hazard was liste...

(1/171) Biomarkers for exposure to ambient air pollution--comparison of carcinogen-DNA adduct levels with other exposure markers and markers for oxidative stress.

Human exposure to genotoxic compounds present in ambient air has been studied using selected biomarkers in nonsmoking Danish bus drivers and postal workers. A large interindividual variation in biomarker levels was observed. Significantly higher levels of bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts (75.42 adducts/10(8) nucleotides) and of 2-amino-apidic semialdehyde (AAS) in plasma proteins (56.7 pmol/mg protein) were observed in bus drivers working in the central part of Copenhagen, Denmark. In contrast, significantly higher levels of AAS in hemoglobin (55.8 pmol/mg protein), malondialdehyde in plasma (0. 96 nmol/ml plasma), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-albumin adduct (3.38 fmol/ microg albumin) were observed in the suburban group. The biomarker levels in postal workers were similar to the levels in suburban bus drivers. In the combined group of bus drivers and postal workers, negative correlations were observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adduct and PAH-albumin levels (p = 0.005), and between DNA adduct and [gamma]-glutamyl semialdehyde (GGS) in hemoglobin (p = 0.11). Highly significant correlations were found between PAH-albumin adducts and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and GGS in hemoglobin (p = 0.001). Significant correlations were also observed between urinary 8-oxo-7, 8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.002). The influence of the glutatione S-transferase (GST) M1 deletion on the correlation between the biomarkers was studied in the combined group. A significant negative correlation was only observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.02) and between DNA adduct and urinary mutagenic activity (p = 0.02) in the GSTM1 null group, but not in the workers who were homozygotes or heterozygotes for GSTM1. Our results indicate that some of the selected biomarkers can be used to distinguish between high and low exposure to environmental genotoxins.  (+info)

(2/171) Nitrogen management and the future of food: lessons from the management of energy and carbon.

The food system dominates anthropogenic disruption of the nitrogen cycle by generating excess fixed nitrogen. Excess fixed nitrogen, in various guises, augments the greenhouse effect, diminishes stratospheric ozone, promotes smog, contaminates drinking water, acidifies rain, eutrophies bays and estuaries, and stresses ecosystems. Yet, to date, regulatory efforts to limit these disruptions largely ignore the food system. There are many parallels between food and energy. Food is to nitrogen as energy is to carbon. Nitrogen fertilizer is analogous to fossil fuel. Organic agriculture and agricultural biotechnology play roles analogous to renewable energy and nuclear power in political discourse. Nutrition research resembles energy end-use analysis. Meat is the electricity of food. As the agriculture and food system evolves to contain its impacts on the nitrogen cycle, several lessons can be extracted from energy and carbon: (i) set the goal of ecosystem stabilization; (ii) search the entire production and consumption system (grain, livestock, food distribution, and diet) for opportunities to improve efficiency; (iii) implement cap-and-trade systems for fixed nitrogen; (iv) expand research at the intersection of agriculture and ecology, and (v) focus on the food choices of the prosperous. There are important nitrogen-carbon links. The global increase in fixed nitrogen may be fertilizing the Earth, transferring significant amounts of carbon from the atmosphere to the biosphere, and mitigating global warming. A modern biofuels industry someday may produce biofuels from crop residues or dedicated energy crops, reducing the rate of fossil fuel use, while losses of nitrogen and other nutrients are minimized.  (+info)

(3/171) Domestic biomass fuel combustion and chronic bronchitis in two rural Bolivian villages.

BACKGROUND: Chronic bronchitis is an important public health problem worldwide. A study was undertaken to examine the association between exposure to air pollution from domestic biomass fuel combustion and chronic bronchitis in two rural Bolivian highland villages: a village in which cooking is done exclusively indoors and a village in which cooking is done primarily outdoors. Apart from this difference, the villages were virtually identical in terms of socioeconomic status, climate, altitude, access to health care, and other potential confounders. METHODS: Pollution exposure was assessed by combining information on concentrations of particulate matter of <10 microm diameter (PM(10)) in 12 randomly selected households in each village in all potential microenvironments of exposure with time allocation information. The prevalence of chronic bronchitis was assessed using the British Medical Research Council's questionnaire on individuals >20 years of age in both villages (n = 241). RESULTS: Daily pollution exposure was significantly higher in the indoor cooking village (range for adults: 9840-15 120 microg-h/m(3)) than in the outdoor cooking village (range for adults: 5520-6240 microg-h/m(3)) for both seasons and for men and women. The overall prevalence of chronic bronchitis was 22% and 13% for the indoor and outdoor cooking villages, respectively. Logistic regression analysis, which excluded the few smokers present in the population, showed a 60% reduced risk of chronic bronchitis in the outdoor cooking village compared with the indoor cooking village (OR 0.4; 95% CI 0.2 to 0.8; p = 0.0102) after adjusting for age and sex. Individuals aged >40 years were 4.3 times more likely to have chronic bronchitis than the younger age group (OR = 4.3; 95% CI 2.0 to 9.3; p = 0.0002). There was no significant difference in the prevalence of chronic bronchitis in men and women. CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest an association between chronic bronchitis and exposure to domestic biomass fuel combustion, but further large scale studies from other areas of the developing world are needed to confirm the association. Results from this and other studies will assist the development of culturally acceptable and feasible alternatives to the high exposure cooking stoves currently being used by most people worldwide.  (+info)

(4/171) Respiratory symptoms in older people and use of domestic gas appliances.

BACKGROUND: Studies in children and young women have indicated an increased risk of respiratory illness in association with the use of domestic gas appliances, possibly caused by oxides of nitrogen generated when gas is burned. It is not known whether risks are similarly increased in older subjects. METHODS: A questionnaire about respiratory symptoms in the past year and potential risk factors for respiratory disease was mailed to 6000 men and women aged 65 years and older who were selected at random from the lists of general practices in North Bristol, UK. Associations between symptoms and the use of gas appliances were examined by logistic regression with adjustment for age, sex, social class, and smoking habits. RESULTS: Questionnaires were completed by 4792 (80%) of those mailed. The most common symptoms were exercise induced breathlessness, wheeze, or chest tightness (51%); wheeze (27%); morning phlegm (20%); and daytime breathlessness at rest (19%). In an analysis that included all subjects only weak associations were found with use of gas appliances, odds ratios all being 1.2 or less. The risks associated with use of a gas hob tended to be higher in women, with odds ratios of 1.36 (95% CI 1.01 to 1.83) for wheeze and 1.33 (95% CI 0.56 to 3.17) for morning chest tightness, but were lower than had been reported previously in younger women. CONCLUSION: The absence of stronger associations cannot readily be explained by bias or confounding. Gas cookers and fires are unlikely to be an important cause of respiratory illness in the elderly. If they do cause such illness, the largest risks are likely to be in women who use gas hobs.  (+info)

(5/171) The effect of gas cooking on bronchial hyperresponsiveness and the role of immunoglobulin E.

Some studies have shown an association between gas cooking and respiratory symptoms. This study investigated whether gas cooking affects bronchial responsiveness and whether particular subjects are more sensitive to this effect. Multiple linear regression analysis was performed with the dose-response slope (Percentage fall in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) divided by total dose of methacholine given) as the dependent variable in 1,921 subjects from a random sample of the Dutch population, aged 20-70 yrs. Whether the association was different according to sex, age, total immunoglobulin (Ig)E, specific IgE to inhalant allergens or smoking habits was tested by including interaction terms into the regression model. Subjects who used gas for cooking had a higher prevalence of bronchial hyperresponsiveness (provocative dose causing a 20% fall in FEV1 (PD20) < or = 2 mg) than those who used electricity (21% versus 14%) and this was dependent on the presence of atopy. Especially subjects with total IgE levels in the highest quartile had a significantly higher dose-response slope when using gas for cooking. This was independent of the presence of specific IgE to inhalant allergens. These results show increased bronchial responsiveness with gas cooking, which was only found in subjects with high total immunoglobulin E levels. This suggests that atopic subjects are sensitive to adverse effects of gas cooking on respiratory health.  (+info)

(6/171) Neonatal tetanus associated with topical umbilical ghee: covert role of cow dung.

BACKGROUND: Previous studies in Pakistan have shown that ghee (clarified butter) is commonly applied to umbilical wounds of neonates, and have documented that such applications are a risk factor for neonatal tetanus (NNT). In-use contamination of ghee with Clostridium tetani has been demonstrated, but mechanisms underlying the risk of ghee have been incompletely evaluated epidemiologically. METHODS: Detailed information on ghee usage, including fuels used to heat it, was obtained from cases of NNT (n = 229) and their matched controls (n = 687) from a population-based study of NNT in Punjab Province, Pakistan. Design variables were created to evaluate the impact of different fuel sources on risk of ghee applications. RESULTS: Nearly one-third of all infants had ghee applied, and it was nearly always heated before application to umbilical wounds of newborns. After controlling for all factors found to be significantly associated with NNT in conditional logistic regression, only ghee that had always been heated with dried cow dung fuel was significantly associated with NNT. Topical antimicrobials and ghee were never applied together. CONCLUSIONS: Ghee applications to umbilical wounds, when heated with 'clean' fuels, appear to pose no increased risk of NNT, although handling practices undoubtedly result in hazardous microbial contamination. In contrast, ghee heated with dung fuel was significantly associated with NNT. The effective promotion of topical antimicrobials might help reduce ghee use, since the intended purpose of each is to enhance healing.  (+info)

(7/171) Occupational risk factors for lung cancer in the French electricity and gas industry: a case-control survey nested in a cohort of active employees.

The main aim of this study was the analysis of occupational lung cancer risk factors in the French national electricity and gas company (Electricite de France-Gaz de France (EDF-GDF)). A case-control survey nested in a cohort of male employees was undertaken. The study population consisted of all male staff who were active at EDF-GDF between January 1, 1978, and December 31, 1989. During this period, 310 cases of lung cancer were identified in the cancer register set up by the medical department of the company. For each case, four age-matched controls who were free of cancer at the time of occurrence of the case's lung cancer were randomly selected. Occupational exposures to 21 chemical agents were assessed for each subject using a job exposure matrix. The associations between lung cancer and the different agents were estimated using conditional logistic regression analysis. After adjustment for various occupational confounding factors, the analysis showed increased lung cancer risks linked to exposure to crystalline silica (highest exposure class: odds ratio = 2.27; 95% confidence interval: 1.10, 4.68) and creosotes (highest exposure level: odds ratio = 2.14; 95% confidence interval: 1.06, 4.31), with significant dose-response relationships for both exposures.  (+info)

(8/171) Global warming in the twenty-first century: an alternative scenario.

A common view is that the current global warming rate will continue or accelerate. But we argue that rapid warming in recent decades has been driven mainly by non-CO(2) greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as chlorofluorocarbons, CH(4), and N(2)O, not by the products of fossil fuel burning, CO(2) and aerosols, the positive and negative climate forcings of which are partially offsetting. The growth rate of non-CO(2) GHGs has declined in the past decade. If sources of CH(4) and O(3) precursors were reduced in the future, the change in climate forcing by non-CO(2) GHGs in the next 50 years could be near zero. Combined with a reduction of black carbon emissions and plausible success in slowing CO(2) emissions, this reduction of non-CO(2) GHGs could lead to a decline in the rate of global warming, reducing the danger of dramatic climate change. Such a focus on air pollution has practical benefits that unite the interests of developed and developing countries. However, assessment of ongoing and future climate change requires composition-specific long-term global monitoring of aerosol properties.  (+info)


When vegans drive or heat their homes, do they worry that they are ultimately using fossil fuels?


I wondered this today.  I know vegans avoid animal products, but how do they feel about using fossil fuels?
mike:  That's the point.  Fossil fuels are essentially animal products.
----------

Soon I'm going to be moving back to the states and living in an apartment south of Seattle. 

Western Washington does get cold but not cold enough to use heat really(Spokane winters on the other hand are a bitch). I would just lay a towel by the doorway and sometimes, if it was really cold, I'd use a heating pad in my bed for a while- then turn it off and the bed would be warm enough to sleep in. 

I don't drive...Never, ever want to. 

How do I feel about me using fossil fuels as a vegan? Well, I don't think it's an unvegan thing to do (Note, I'm a vegan because I don't believe in exploiting animals, no other reason but I am an environmentalist). Logically everything that dies goes back to the earth and there's nothing you or I can do about it. When I'm dead, I like to think that I'm going to the earth to feed the soil...the earth has fed me now I'm giving back. I've read stories where coffins have been split open by the roots of trees and the corpse inside has been sucked up by the tree. That's the cycle of life. 

So I don't think it's unvegan...however, it is bad for the environment. I'm not just a vegan I'm an environmentalist...so yes, I worry about it.


How can you consider yourself a vegan/vegetarian when you use fossil fuels?


Fossil fuels are dead organic matter crushed under enormous amounts of pressure over a very long period of time. This organic matter can include inanimate objects like trees, but also includes dead animals (dinosaurs, etc). When pretty much everything in our industrialized civilization is made up of or runs off fossil fuels, aren't vegans/vegetarians somewhat misguided and oblivious to all the ways in which animals enrich their lives, dead or alive?
----------

The idea of being vegan is to reduce your use of animal products in the most practical way possible. No one can be 100% vegan until the whole world stops using animal products in things that the average consumer doesn't have any control over or option in. [Most] Vegans aren't oblivious to these issues. Being vegan isn't about being perfect and I'm sorry if you met some vegan who gave you the impression that it is.


Can I be vegan and use oil? Since it is a fossil fuel that came from dinosaurs which are animals?


Is fossil fuel used for electricity too? Dinosaurs are reptiles, if you are vegan can you eat alligator and wear alligator shoes?
Don't try to take my freedom of speech you vegan terrorist! Calling me names, it is a perfectly good question.
----------

These are ummm interesting points. A true vegan would probably shun the shoes. Unless it was an alligator pear (avocado) you'd never eat an alligator either if you were vegan.
Please make sure that you keep your mouth shut at all times too to avoid swallowing flies.


What is the most animal friendly fur coat company?


I'm a nice guy, so I want to help the animals by only supporting fur coat companies that treat their animals ethically.
I hear some of them drop their animals off of flying planes to kill them and that's not ethical when you can just beat the shlt out of them with a baseball bat on land and let the fossil fuels RIP. You know?


So, any suggestions?
I'm sorry that some of us here care about animals and the environment.
I give all of my animals cocaine before I kill them so at least they have a good last hour.
----------

Just go away.

Edit: Alright, have to admit that the cocaine bit made me laugh..


Did you know that organic farmers spray twice as often as conventional farmers?


Organic farmers spray around twice as often as conventional farmers because the chemicals that they use where off faster, so they use a lot more fossil fuels the conventional farmers. The difference in-between organic farmers and conventional farmers is that organic farmers use only naturally occurring toxins like nicotine, while conventional farmer use some man-made toxins, that break apart and dissolve into nature quickly, and some naturally occurring toxins.

Another thing is that if organic farmers didn't spray they wouldn't be able to market the fruit anywhere in the world because of all the insects that would be in them.

So why do so many people think the organic farmers don't spray?


Growing up on a conventional orchard I have watched organic farmers spraying their orchards across the road.
Fine if you don't believe me go to any organic farmer and ask them if they spray.
 And try to get a truthful answear.
----------

I thought trolls were supposed to stick to Politics & Government.  Nice sources, by the way.
UPDATE:
Adie's right--sprayed with WHAT?  I notice you haven't come up with any sources yet nor answered Adie's question either.  We're waiting...


If we use more fuel by driving faster- will we incur monetary penalties?


If European agreements mean we have to reduce our global footprint or face budgetry changes such as we have to pay more into the fund or they give us less concession in other quarters: does this mean it isn't as straight forwards as Philip hammond thinks- he can't combat the deficit by raising more money from an increase in the depletion of a fossil fuel- do you agree with motorway speed limits altering?
----------

Yes.

Most drivers have their own idea how fast they should go on the motorway anyway, so the effects won't be as great as the anti-freedom campaigners like to think.


Is it ok for vegetarians to use fossil fuels?


Since oil comes from diatoms which are animals (NOT plants) wouldnt it be safe to use other sources of fuel?
----------

I did not find anything on Diatoms in Petroleum or as part of fossil fuels.  However, my quick search on WIkipedia does not rule that out at all. 

What I *did* find is that Diatoms are NOT animals.  They are either placed in the kingdom Chromista or in Protista.  Diatoms are considered Algae.  

Even if they were classified as animals, while a vegan may try to avoid their use, there is only so much that can be done in today's society.  A vegan may work to change the reliance on fossil fuels, but because of reality, it would be nearly impossible to use NO fossil fuels in the US, or most 1st world countries.  Wood to build a home would have been cut & transported.  Foods at the store have been harvested and transported.  Medications, Clothing, and daily items will all have touched some sort of fossil fuel.  

The problems that moral people run into in this world are that sometimes the world just hasn't caught up with morality.  But, that doesn't mean they should give up.  Leaving a smaller footprint will always be better than a larger one.  I'd rather have someone try to be better and to be 75% ethical, moral, and good, than to refuse it 100% because of some stupid "ALL OR NOTHING" mentality.


Vegans, do you own smaller cars then omnivores?


Or do you proclaim to be a vegan, but drive around in an SUV? Do you rideshare or utilize public transportation? Or do REAL vegans not believe in any transportation that uses fossil fuel?
Lo- That is the first real vegan anwser I have ever seen you give. I guess you can give yourself a notch on your belt for a true valiant effort on your vegan quest.
----------

I drive a little vw gti. Rideshare and public transport aren't efficient ways for me to get to work.  If I took the bus it would take me 1 hour and 15 minutes, to go just 4 miles. :(
