1) Methane is a greenhouse gas
2) Eating fibrous vegetation creates methane
3) Creation of methane increases your carbon footprint.
+ 1) Livestock eat much fibrous vegetation.
++ 1) Decreasing carbon footprint is good.
++ 2) Killing livestock that have high carbon footprints decrease carbon footprint.
++ 3) Waste is bad.
++ 4) Eating livestock that have been killed to decrease carbon footprint does not waste the livestock.
++ 5) Vegans do not eat or kill livestock.
Conversely: Carnivores are good for the environment because they do not eat fibrous vegetation, and they do not waste livestock, which they kill, thereby reducing carbon footprints.
1) Some people are carnivores
2) Some carnivores eat vegans.
3) Vegans increase carbon footprint which is bad.
4) A person who eats people is a cannibal
There is no significant difference between the job they described, and a law enforcement innocent images related job.

Mod parent as insightful. I also take notes not as a way to remember the meeting, but as a way to organize my thoughts about what should be said next.

In the computer world, we're all taught to only install firmware updates if there is a real problem because a large percentage of firmware updates actually brick the hardware or cause other unforeseen bugs.
In the computer security world, we craft effigies of people like you and burn them for not installing the patch that causes the security failure. Lets see if I can follow the logic:
1)The patch that prevents me from dying might break my car.
2)My car is under warranty.
3)My dealer will install the patch, and therefore accept liability for breaking my car.
a) Not accept the patch, and risk DYING.
b) Let the dealer install the patch, understanding that he must fix the car that he breaks while doing the warranty repair work, and accept the consequences, up to and including the dealer providing a new car for breaking my car.
Can anyone help me to understand the argument against installing the update?
When you don't know what to do put a bunch of people in a aroom that might be responsible, come up with a scenario, and ask the question, "Who does what?"
Whoever gets there first, say hello to Manual Garcia O'Kelly for me.
The above will only make sense to those who have read the Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein.
