Cheap meat is a bigger problem for climate and health

Meat is the driving cause behind a wide range of ills, from obesity to climate change and deforestation, and it’s time for politicians to do something about it, said a leading scholar on sustainability issues.

”The climate change debate has so far mostly focussed on cutting carbon pollution from transport and energy because cheap meat has become a kind of human right in our modern societies,” said Johan Rockstroem, a professor of environmental science at Stockholm University and executive director of the research institute, Stockholm Resilience Centre.

Isn’t it funny how all the Warmist policy prescriptions revolve around Government forcing citizens to Do Something?

An Eat-funded research team will next year unveil guidelines for a diet that is both healthy and sustainable enough to feed 9-10 billion people by 2050.

Rockstroem said it is clear that the current system is all but broken.

The better for Big Centralized Government weenies to exert more control.

Agriculture is the number-one cause of greenhouse gases, deforestation, depletion of freshwater resources, and the extinction of species.

Wait, I though it was fossil fuels? No?

Rockstroem said the food revolution demands that politicians regulate and even ban certain types of food.

They keep making the case that this is a political, Progressive (nice Fascism) issue.

On a related note, I get a kick out of the same Leftists who complain about about obesity (and how it is related to ‘climate change’) in their next breath complain about “body shaming.”

    I ate a healthy green dinner last night. There was green beans with almonds, broccoli slaw, dirty rice, salad, seared scallops, grilled shrimp, lobster, and filet mignon. And dessert. I’m feeling very conscientious.

    That’s the way socialists work, on everything.

    I actually did vegetarian for four years, and it was fine. Of course, it was my choice, not something forced upon me by others.

    Modern agricultural practices require the burning of fossil fuels.

    On the other hand, the author’s claim that agriculture is the greatest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions is a slight exaggeration, at least according to the US EPA.

    Jeffrey noted:

    Modern agricultural practices require the burning of fossil fuels.

    For virtually everything produced, meats, dairy, grains and vegetables. Add to that the fact that fossil fuels are burned in the transportation of farm products to food processors, and from there, to markets.

    I spent more than a few miserable days breathing in diesel exhaust, riding on the tobacco setter behind my uncle’s tractor. Tobacco is initially planted in a bed, covered with a cloth. When the plants are about eight to twelve inches tall, they are pulled, and then replanted in the main field. Two men sit in the setter, and place the plants in mechanical clamps, clamps which them release the plants into freshly plowed soil. I guess that it wouldn’t have been so bad if my uncle’s tractor had an upright exhaust, but no, it had a low, rear tailpipe.
