Nuts (tree nuts) have a negative carbon intensity. Not that I needed another reason to eat more nuts TBH, but maybe you do.
@peregrine Not sure about others, but I've heard almonds require a tremendous amount of water to produce. I wonder if there's a carbon and water friendly variety.
@groff I think it depends on location. Most everything grown in California requires a tremendous amount of irrigation because of its unique situation.
@peregrine Makes sense. CA produces a majority of the world's almonds and our water woes are epic.
@peregrine There is the question about their water consumption, though. California almond farmers are kinda the shitheels of state water politics. Not that I'm not a fan...I'm meatless and drink almond milk...but just one of those things to remember that few analyses give the whole tale of the tape.
@roadriverrail califorina is truly a special place
@peregrine Like a blacksmith's crucible is special, yeah.
