The fact that commercial airlines are preparing to use beef fat to help fuel aircraft is the kind of news that sends the eco-razzi into celebratory whirligigs.
It hardly matters that we’re looking at yet another meaningless
example of “reduce, reuse, recycle” pomp to mask deeper problems that
demand more systemic and radical solutions. It hardly matters that using
beef fat (beef being one of the most ecologically damaging products on
earth) to subsidize flying (flying being one of the most ecologically
damaging services on earth) is like robbing Paul to pay Peter; at the
end of the day it’s just another lovely, feel-good case of reducing
waste, an act whose evidently inherent virtue makes the media go all
loopy while obscuring the underlying, scolding question of why we rely
so heavily on these goods and services (beef, flying) in the first
But that’s all high horse talk. Down in the streets vegans have a
new and difficult question to ask themselves: will vegans fly in planes
fueled by the animals we claim to do everything in our power not to
exploit? I couldn’t help but notice an ominous dearth of commentary on
this heavily covered media issue in the vegan blogosphere. Although I
can certainly understand the reticence. The prospect of every major
airline supplementing fossil fuel with beefy bio-diesel is a real one,
and if that possibility comes to fruition, vegans face yet another case
of a terribly convenient aspect of first-world life—flying—that, while
hardly necessary to existence, is something we’ll most likely never give
up. Vegans, in other words, will routinely participate in yet another
activity that harms animals when, realistically albeit very
inconveniently, they could avoid but won’t.
As a result, they will further gut the meaning of vegan from within.
In 2013-2014 I flew 35 times to locations where I preached (in part)
the ecological virtues of not eating meat. Absurd, of course, that I was
flying hither and yon to do this, but what if my mile-high experience
had been powered by beef? Well, I’d have to be the first person to
laugh my ass off at myself.
Readers, pipe up. What to do about beef-powered planes?
