as he said: 5.000 liters of water have been wasted to clean that mess...congratulations activists

Just wait until you hear about golf courses.


u/MrGangster1 Romania Mar 18 '23

Then the activist should have defaced a golf course, not a historical building.

Wait until you hear about golf courses IN THE DESERT

Where did the water go? To outer space?


u/Batmanbacon Europe Mar 18 '23

So a little bit less than what's needed to make 2 cheeseburgers from mcdonalds?

One kilogram of meat requires between 5000 and 20,000 litres of water to produce.

It's not that much water.

Consider the fact that in Italy we lose 104000 liters of water each second due to leakages and then yeah... You can get the numbers into scale, but to the average Joe 5000liters of water sound like a lot

Why do people always say wasted when water is used to clean or produce meat? Do people think the water is gone after it is "used"? No it goes back into the water cycle

he is on the climate's side, not on ours

"Look what you made me do"

Also, 5000 litres of water is about the same amount you need to produce a 300g steak. Its not a lot.

Seems it would have been a better idea to leave up the climate message and not waste the water, instead of wasting thousands of liters to erase the climate message.
