The Guardian: Food Strategy For England Calls For Big Cut In Meat Consumption

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In the UK, fake populist Boris Johnson’s government has a new report out which is calling for a 30% reduction in meat consumption in England to fight climate change. Fortunately, you will be relieved to hear that the Johnson government is ruling out a meat tax for now in favor of a less coercive policy of “nudges” to coerce the British taxpayer into eating the fake plant-based meat backed by oligarchs like Nanny Bloomberg, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and promoted by the bug eating weirdos at Vox.

The Guardian:

“The new food strategy for England, commissioned by the government, lays out in stark detail the damage the current food and farming system wreaks on the environment, as well as our health. It is the biggest destroyer of nature and a major source of climate warming, it says.

The report takes aim at overconsumption of meat. “Our current appetite for meat is unsustainable,” it says. “85% of farmland is used to feed livestock [and] we need some of that land back.”

That 85% of land provides only 32% of the calories we eat, it says: “By contrast, the 15% of farmland that is used to grow plant crops for human consumption provides 68% of our calories.” The report also tackles the myth that grass-fed livestock are greener, saying: “The more intensively you rear some animals, the more carbon-efficient they tend to be.”

It recommends meat consumption is cut by 30% within a decade. If the government accepted this, it would be a world-leading goal. But while it is consistent with the advice from the government’s official advisers, the Climate Change Committee, many scientific studies have concluded much higher cuts in rich, western nations are needed if the climate crisis is to be halted.

One major analysis concluded Europeans and North Americans need to cut meat eating by 80% for their diet to be both climate friendly and healthy. Another said a 90% cut in beef eating was required to beat global heating. Avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet, according to some researchers. …”

The globalist political establishment is mobilizing behind this cause.

As we previously noted, Prince Charles recently condemned cheap food for destroying the planet. Prince Harry and Meghan recently accepted an award from an environmental organization for only having two children because a third child would emit more carbon. British Vogue also condemned having children earlier this year as an act of pure environmental vandalism because larger families have a higher carbon footprint.
