Case study:

Visiting foreign lecturer wishes to make reference to igloo/kayak/#blubber economy. Makes mistake of using word “#Eskimo”.

Is corrected for not saying “#Inuit”.

Corrector corrected, because not all igloo/kayak/#blubber guys are #Inuit.

Corrector-corrector corrected because not all Inuit are igloo/kayak/blubber guys.

Sociologists and anthropologists climb in, and the word “Athabascan” appears, inconclusively.

Linguists challenge spelling of “#Athabaskan”.

To kick off #Sustainuary then, let's talk about #dairy alternatives like nut juice, oat juice and various other #plantbased drinks. We've never had more choice, but what are the actual #sustainability credentials of these products vs animal milk? #Veganuary
#Dairy production has received widespread criticism for its #carbonfootprint .
The average UK dairy system produces around 1.2Kg Co2eq. per Kg milk . However this varies hugely, mainly depending on the cows' diets and how much fertiliser is used on the pasture. #sustainuary
The most #sustainable #dairy farms in the UK can have carbon footprints as low as 0.5 KgCO2 eq. per Kg milk produced, which are comparable to many dairy alternatives. #Sustainuary #Veganuary
