Benjamin Franklin when he was very young decided to go vegetarian. Then he was by the pier and saw fishermen cut open fish, and saw other fish inside. So he reasoned that “well, if you can eat other fish, then I can certainly eat you.” He enjoyed eating meat thereafter.

But wouldn’t having a vegetarian diet support the climate change “logic,” too much CO2 is destroying the planet, therefore fewer plants from said diet, therefore less CO2?

There’s also a story in his autobiography about one of his early in life return journeys from Britain. He was trying to maintain his vegetarian diet but as his ship approached American shores the sailors brought in a haul of codfish and proceeded to fry them on deck. The wonderful aroma overcame Franklin’s resolve and he scarfed up the fried fish along with the crew and the rest of the passengers. His vegetarianism always had more to do with spending as little money as possible (penny saved, penny earned, etc.) than the supposed health benefits, and that motivation was lost temporarily because of a free fish fry, and longer term by his eventual success as a printer, publisher, post master, colonial representative (the list goes on).

Just after I finished reading the posts on punctuation in the First Amendment comes your story, which includes the following:

The wonderful aroma overcame Franklin’s resolve and he scarfed up the fried fish along with the crew and the rest of the passengers.

This, without proper punctuation, implies that Ben ate the fish, the crew, and the rest of the passengers. Who was left to sail the ship?

:)

Plants breath CO2 and convert it to oxygen for us.

If vegans eat too many plants then there are fewer to consume the CO2 = more global warming.

You're right. Proofreading and punctuation are both really important. Although maybe the sequel to Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter could be Ben Franklin ... Scientist, Statesman, Cannibal. I've always believed that if you can't change your past mistakes you can at least try to think of creative ways to make money off them.
