Impossible Foods newly launched campaign “We are Meat” is worthy of only one response. Ignore it.

Is anybody getting bored with Impossible Foods trying to pick a fight with meat producers? I sure am.

Here’s their first national ad campaign — “We Are Meat.” Seriously? Oy.

For Impossible, the path to reaching their goal of meat being “obsolete by 2035” is apparently by marketing their product…

Using a patent-pending cleaning process, a Wyoming company hopes to water ranchlands with the notoriously nasty byproduct from oil and gas wells

A Patterson-UTI drilling rig operating for Ultra Petroleum Resources in the Pinedale Anticline natural gas field, in Sublette County, near Pinedale, Wy. The PInedale Anticline is one of the highest producing gas fields in the United States. Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling at depths of 5,000 to 20,000 feet releases the gas.

Woody Harrelson Says So.

I watched the Kiss the Ground film on a creepy, smoky September morning. The West Coast is on fire again. My Covid mask supply has been doing double-duty, warding off a pandemic and smoke inhalation.

2020 sucks.
