If by 'common sense' you mean undigested prejudice and knee-jerk reactions, I would agree! :)

Common sense is seriously lacking these days. People get scammed hard everywhere by number guys who juggle with beautiful numbers and promise big profits but an average joe is going to lose most of his money eventually. That is what I call common sense. Not getting scammed by bankers, diet gurus etc etc. The list is endless.

World must reach 'peak meat' by 2030 to meet climate change targets, scientists warn

https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/12/world/pe ... index.html

"The world needs to reach "peak meat" within the next 10 years to combat the effects of climate change, scientists have warned.

In a letter to The Lancet Planetary Health Journal, they said all but the poorest countries needed to set a time frame for livestock production to stop growing, since the meat and dairy sector is responsible for such a large proportion of emissions.

The scientists called on governments to identify the largest emissions sources or land-occupiers in the livestock sector and set reduction targets to help fight the risk of global temperatures rising by more than the "safe" limit of 1.5-2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels."

Title: "Emissions – Impossible"

https://www.iatp.org/emissions-impossible

"Emissions intensity targets count emissions per kilogram of meat or milk, but they do nothing to curtail overall growth in company emissions, sales, processing volumes, revenues, or profits.

While intensity may be kept in check or even reduced, total emissions will continue to rise in tandem with production. It is easy to see why corporations focus on reducing intensity rather than reducing total emissions."
