Greenpeace against meat: Normal food under the threat

The struggle for a ‘green economy’ that is unleashed in the West may lead to the situation that at the request of environmentalists people will have to eat grass and grasshoppers instead of meat and milk. This will most detrimentally affect the health of Western citizens, however, Greenpeace and other activists demand that European authorities stop feeding people normal food.

Greenpeace called on the governments to prioritise reducing meat and dairy consumption in its new food strategy report. The organisation claimed the way to feed more people, lower food prices and build resilience out of multiple crises, is to stop wasting land and crops to feed animals for meat and dairy.

Greenpeace said it is ‘essential’ that the food strategy is underpinned by a government target to reduce meat and dairy production and consumption by 70% by 2030, as well as helping to deliver reductions in greenhouse gas emissions

Currently, between €28 billion and €32 billion is spent in subsidies each year for livestock farming or the production of fodder and cereals for livestock, which represents more than half of the budget for European agriculture (€58.4 billion).

Greenpeace is, therefore, also asking the European Commission to take this issue more seriously, given that two-thirds of the European agricultural area is currently taken up by livestock farming, contributing to water pollution.

Europeans devour 1.58 kg of meat per week, which has serious effects on the climate. Among Europeans, the French are the 6th-biggest meat consumers, chomping through 83 kilos per year per person. By comparison, the Spaniards eat more than 100 kilos of meat, while Bulgarians only eat 58 kilos, writes Euractiv.

The world’s leading medical journal, The Lancet, recommends that in 2050, people should be consuming a maximum of 300 grams of meat per week, for both health and climate reasons. “A diet rich in plants and seeds has real health and climate benefits,” the journal writes, arguing that a predominantly vegetarian diet will also feed 10 billion people.

NGO Greenpeace goes so far as proposing a law that aims for a 70% reduction of meat consumption by 2030, accompanied by an 80% reduction by 2050.

Eating habits are responsible for carbon dioxide emissions and many countries could improve their carbon footprint by changing them. European countries are not all equal in terms of CO2 emissions, but an effort could be made.

Europeans consume a far high amount of milk and meat compared to the global average, and eat twice as much as the rest of the world. This diet has serious consequences for the climate because of cattle’s methane emissions. On top of that, cattle also emit CO2 emissions from the cereals they eat.

When it comes to soy imported from South America, a cereal whose cultivation is largely responsible for the degradation of the Amazon rainforest, the carbon balance of dairy and meat products skyrockets.

According to a report published by the British Ecological Society and supported by 36,000 scientists, the current Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is being used in favour of agriculture that optimises yields, at the expense of biodiversity and the environment, but also of the climate.

It, therefore, calls for an in-depth overhaul of the mechanism, with CO2 emission reduction targets that are transparent and clearer than the current ones. It also envisages less funding directed towards industrial animal farming.

The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group is a globalist enterprise with at least 14 partners right here in the U.S., and, they have set an "ambitious target" to convince the masses to give up meat, dairy, and private car ownership, as well as almost all flights, to supposedly save the planet and control temperatures forever around the current level, writes ‘The American Thinker’.

Fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate organization known as the 'C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group,' which has an 'ambitious target' by the year 2030 of '0 kg [of] meat consumption,' '0 kg [of] dairy consumption,' '3 new clothing items per person per year,' '0 private vehicles' owned, and '1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person.'

The organization is headed and largely funded by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg. Nearly 100 cities across the world make up the organization, and its American members include Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

So 14 leftist cities in the U.S. have signed on to this commitment to take away freedom of choice from their citizens, while people suffer under rampant crime and children perform poorly in schools, but their priority is to take away milk, meat, and gas-powered cars.

Major funders and partners of the organization include George Soros's Open Society Foundations, the Clinton Foundation, and The World Bank.

Bloomberg and other green pushers tell people their gas-powered cars are destroying the planet, yet he has a massive car collection of gas-guzzlers.

They want to outlaw milk; does that include breastfeeding? Pretty sure that's a dairy product, and women and babies breathe out that vicious CO2, a non-pollutant, clear gas that makes plants thrive.

These billionaires generate massive pollution and pollute people's minds with talking points to indoctrinate the people to fall for pure propaganda.

What you will never see in these articles or in these policies is scientific data that show a direct correlation between milk and temperature, cars and temperature, meat and temperature, the population and temperature, crude oil consumption and temperature, or CO2 and temperature. The temperature fluctuates no matter what the other variables do.

These billionaires and other leftists pretend they care about the poor and middle classes and small business, but every day, they show that is a blatant lie. They are extremely dangerous to our survival as a great and prosperous country, as are all the journalists who regurgitate the talking points without asking questions or doing any research.


P.S. Japanese ecologists have published a rough scheme of the spread of radioactive water from Fukushima in the oceans, which the Japanese will begin to dump on August 24. Where is Greenpeace?
