Technocrats Demand Meat Tax to Fight Climate Change

Environmental economists want to hike price of beef by 56 per cent.

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 Berlin’s Chair of Sustainable Use of Natural Resources are demanding limitations on meat consumption in order to “attain greenhouse gas neutrality.”

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

“Evidence suggests the environmental impacts are so large that the world can’t meet climate goals and keep vital ecosystems intact without reducing the consumption of meat – at least in Western high-income countries,” he added.

Mattauch wants governments to “start thinking about also taxing meat to reduce its consumption,” asserting that this is the “most efficient path to preventing further strain on our planet.”

“According to the group’s model calculations, the direct cost of livestock farming in relation to climate change is as high as $9.21 per kilogram of beef,” reports ReMix News. “Applying 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.”

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 “sustainable” source of protein.

As we previously 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 officially approved the sale of worms as food to be consumed by humans.

Last month, Vanderbilt University Professor Amanda Little argued that everyone in the world needs to start dining on insects and that the EU’s approval of them conferred a form of “dignity” to their consumption.

One group of people who won’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 year’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.

Bill Gates Flies Around Australia on $70 Million Dollar Private Jet Lecturing People About Climate Change

Do as I say, not as I do.

Billionaire Bill Gates is currently flying around Australia on board his $70 million dollar luxury private jet lecturing people about climate change.

Yes, really.

The Microsoft founder is trying to drum up business for his Breakthrough Energy company by telling investors, “The reason why climate change is worth investing in massively is because it will get worse and worse over time.”

The potential for climate catastrophe doesn’t appear to be enough for Gates to change his own behavior, however, as he burns around 1,700 liters of fuel per hour while gallivanting around in his $70m Gulfstream.

The billionaire spent some time relaxing on Lizard Island (how appropriate) on Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef before taking the gas guzzling form of transport to travel to Sydney for a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Gates owns no fewer than FOUR private jets at a combined cost of $194 million dollars.

Gates spewed his usual alarmist rhetoric, claiming that man made global warming will lead to “all sorts of natural ecosystems disappear and all sorts of places in the world you can’t do outdoor work.”

“Climate change is not yet having the negative effects of a disease like malaria, which kills 400,00 children a year,” Gates told attendees at an event hosted by the Lowy Institute think-tank.

The globalist philanthropist said, “The key is to minimise the warming as much as possible,” although Mr. Gates himself won’t be contributing to that goal by flying commercial.

It’s very much ‘do as I say, not as I do’ after Gates acknowledged in his 2021 book How To Avoid Climate Disaster that he was a total hypocrite.

“I am aware that I’m an imperfect messenger on climate change,” he wrote, adding, “I own big houses and fly in private planes – in fact, I took one to Paris for the climate conference, so who am I to lecture anyone on the environment?”

“I plead guilty to all three charges. I can’t deny being a rich guy with an opinion. I do believe, though, that it is an informed opinion, and I am always trying to learn more.”

Apparently, ‘learning more’ means continuing to browbeat you over your carbon footprint while Gates himself emits one the size of a small country.

Gates’ behavior once again exemplifies how mega-rich climate change preachers don’t actually believe their own propaganda about rising CO2 levels causing apocalyptic climate change.

Al Gore Attempts Own ‘Greta Moment’ In Unhinged Davos Rant: “Equivalent Of 600,000 Hiroshima Bombs Daily”

Published

Al Gore is testing out his performative Greta mode at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week. The former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate who as early as the 1990’s was dubbed in the pages of The Washington Post as “very boring” and as having a “naturally stiff, wooden persona” momentarily (and very awkwardly) tried to go climate activist beast mode during a Q&A panel.

His attempt this week to pull off a “Greta moment” and shed his notorious stiffness resulted in an unhinged rant wherein he claimed that carbon emissions and greenhouses gases are trapping “as much extra heat as would be released by 600,000 Hiroshima class atomic bombs exploding every single day on the earth.”

That’s right, you heard him correctly… six-hundred-thousand Hiroshima bombs every single day – according to his bizarre rant, which he further said is “boiling the oceans” and creating “rain bombs” and “atmospheric rivers” resulting in millions of “climate refugees”. 

“Climate refugees are expected to reach one billion in this century”… he said, before turning to the “xenophobia” somehow unleashed on the world in the process due to the “Hiroshima bombs”. 

Next, Gore can perhaps stage his own arrest at a climate protest right alongside his hero.

Then maybe, just maybe, he’ll be relevant again – as he clearly so desperately wants.

Meanwhile, at a moment the Davos elites are busy fueling an actual war…

Great Reset: Individual CO2 Limits Needed to Fight Climate Change, Says German Scientist

Those who exceed their limit should be forced to pay for the pleasure.

An individual carbon dioxide limit should be applied to every person in order to establish a “planetary guardrail” in the effort to combat allegedly man-made climate change, a leading German scientist has argued.

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) said this week that every person should have a limit of three tonnes of C02 emissions per year and those who exceed their limit should be forced to pay for the pleasure.

In comments reported by Taagesschau, Schellnhuber said that there were are two competing property rights issues at hand, namely the right to spend one’s money on high emissions activities and the rights of the rest of the population to “have an environment worth living [in]”.

In a carbon credit style scheme, those who emit over the three-tonne limit by the middle of the century would need to privately purchase credits from those who are under the limit, he suggested: “Every person gets three tons of CO2 per year, but if you need more, you just have to buy it.”

At present, according to the news outlet, the average German is far above Schellnhuber’s proposed limit, as ten tonnes of C02 emissions are produced by the average citizen. Citing the Paris World Inequality lab, there are some millionaires within the country that produce over 100 tonnes of CO2 per year, and some thousands of elites worldwide emit over 2,000 tonnes per year.

Aside from not spelling out how he expects people to drastically reduce their carbon emissions, the German scientist did not elaborate on how exactly this will be tracked and monitored.
