Technocrats Demand Meat Tax to Fight Climate Change

The vast majority of rank-and-file citizens disbelieve the global war on red meat, and yet the environmental extremists will not let go of their demands to destroy the industry and drive people to eat insect protein instead. This battle is intensifying everywhere and is unmistakable. The price of quality beef in the US has doubled in the last 2 years and is still rising. āƒ TN Editor

A group of environmental economists in Germany is demanding that huge taxes be imposed on meat products to fight climate change, with calls for beef to be 56 per cent more expensive.

Asserting that livestock is responsible for 13 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, researchers from TU Berlinā€™s Chair of Sustainable Use of Natural Resources are demanding limitations on meat consumption in order to ā€œattain greenhouse gas neutrality.ā€

ā€œLivestock farming is a huge contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, soil and water pollution, and precious forests are being cleared for pastures and food crops,ā€ said the leader of the group, Professor Linus Mattauch.

ā€œEvidence suggests the environmental impacts are so large that the world canā€™t meet climate goals and keep vital ecosystems intact without reducing the consumption of meat ā€“ at least in Western high-income countries,ā€ he added.

Mattauch wants governments to ā€œstart thinking about also taxing meat to reduce its consumption,ā€ asserting that this is the ā€œmost efficient path to preventing further strain on our planet.ā€

ā€œAccording to the groupā€™s model calculations, the direct cost of livestock farming in relation to climate change is as high as $9.21 per kilogram of beef,ā€ reportsĀ ReMix News. ā€œApplying this cost to the price of beef could result in beef products being as much as 56 percent more expensive. Similarly, poultry would cost 25 percent more, and lamb and pork would rise by 19 percent.ā€

Such taxes will of course primarily impact the poor, who in many western countries are already suffering due to rampant food inflation.

No doubt the solution to that will be amplifying efforts to encourage everyone to start eating bugs as an alternative and ā€œsustainableā€ source of protein.

As we previouslyĀ highlighted, the World Economic Forum published two articles on its website which explored how people could be conditioned to get used to the idea of eating weeds, bugs and drinking sewage water in order to reduce CO2 emissions.

In January last year, the EU officiallyĀ approvedĀ the sale of worms as food to be consumed by humans.

Last month, Vanderbilt University Professor Amanda LittleĀ arguedĀ that everyone in the world needs to start dining on insects and that the EUā€™s approval of them conferred a form of ā€œdignityā€ to their consumption.

One group of people who wonā€™t be eating bugs is technocrat globalists.

Despite insisting that everyone else reduce their living standards and ration their meat eating to save the planet, during last yearā€™s Cop 26 summit, attendees enjoyed a menu full of animal-based dishes that were at least double the carbon footprint of the average UK meal.

Do these idiots really believe that they’re so safe in their ivory towers that the huge targets that they just painted on themselves can’t get hit? Not that i have a single good feeling towards any one of them, but i don’t like to see outright moronic behavior of this type, guaranteed to cause at the very least bloodshed, possibly worse…My philosophy is live and let live, but I absolutely refuse to let some self-entitled egomaniac walk all over me or try to control my life by no right other than that their ill-gotten nauseating wealth causes otherwise sane people to take note of their wishes and act foolishly in hopes of a chance… Read more »

I smiled with what you said. The problem is most of these guys are vegetarian just like Hitler was, though he like his drugs, he was possessed by a devil. I suspect they practice Yoga and TM as well, that’s how devil’s get ya!. Just sayin~ PETA= People Eating Tasty Animals.

Cattle farming has been going for centuries and before that there were more than a billion bison in North America. That didnā€™t cause global warming!

There would be no climate emergency to even speak about if the globalists would stop ELF heating of the atmosphere to support their climate argument. They are creating it all. They are using ELF to cause atmospheric changes that produce extreme weather across the globe. The CCP is also doing it–bed partners. We can see their actions as they are executing them (Dane Winington site). These global criminals do not care a whit for anything or anyone. They’re not going to eat bugs, we know. In their zeal to kill us off they are killing the earth’s crops, animals and… Read more »
