Ahhh......most people expect the the govt to lead them on issues for the global good says Chatham house study.

The first global analysis of meat taxes done in 2016 found levies of 40% on beef, 20% on dairy products and 8.5% on chicken would save half a million lives a year and slash climate warming emissions. Proposals in Denmark suggested a tax of $2.70 per kilogram of meat.

Meat taxes are often seen as politically impossible but research by Chatham House in 2015 found they are far less unpalatable to consumers than governments think. It showed people expect governments to lead action on issues that are for the global good, but that awareness of the damage caused by the livestock industry is low. Using meat tax revenues to subsidise healthy foods is one idea touted to reduce opposition.

    Laboratory grown meats will eventually become cost competitive with range-grown beef. At that point the cattle industry will focus on producing high quality "source" stock from much smaller herds. Artificially grown ground beef will be the first product, with some examples being test marketed now, but I don't see the possibility of manufactured articles that resemble familiar beef cuts anytime soon. It makes me wonder if those who are vegetarian because they're against killing animals will be able to eat the lab grown product with a clear conscience.

    This is absolutely scary. Processed foods and certain vegetables (nightshades) turn out to be at the heart of my health problems. Imagine your doctor telling you: Stop eating processed foods. Stick with Meat, Veggies. No potatoes, legume, tomatoes...

    Ok... Then they want to tax the meat to save the planet????

    It appears the leftists actually want to destroy all human life and leave the planet to the OTHER creatures. Their logical conclusion is that beavers building a Dam is okay, but humans... Not so much! I am at a loss...

    15%??????????????...that's a crock, just like the entire idea that cows cause climate change.

    Sometimes I wonder if these creatures actually know that 60+ percent of the population NEEDS CLEAN RED MEAT to be healthy, productive and creative.
    My thought was that perhaps they do and just want to kill me and the rest of us 0/B bloodtype meat eaters...

      I had a mean Angry nun as math teacher/ Principal
      In grade school. Her name was Sister Andrea from School Sisters of Notre Dame. On a Monday in seventh grade she started class by holding up an advertisement the add proudly proclaimed a 100% improved laundry detergent. She went on to say these endorsements are subjective usually they are meaningless because there is no basis to measure a percent against. Sister Andrea then proceeded to show in that Sunday paper
      Example after example of the misleading , equivocal use of percentages for promotion and manipulation.

      It's interesting to see that Bill Gates is an early player in the non meat hamburger business , I am sure it is because it is so similar to the software business and since retiring from that . He has been busy in Africa with his If successful vaccine
      Program it will result in a declining population. If he makes a good enough fake burger will it result in a population decline as well?
      Could crony capitalism cause this tax to be approved. Maybe flatulence bags for the cows will be mandated. Oops https://www.naturalnews.com/055246_cl...

    This is exactly the UN at work, as it is part of UN Agenda 21, now called Agenda 2030. Get rid of meat comsumption, private property ownership, and capitalism, per their own statements. This is indeed scary, and the UN should be tossed from the US. In 1976, Kissinger stated that is they could control food, oil and banking, they could accomplish one world government within 2 years, but people were smarter then. A wise anthropology professor once said that all dietary bans were based on the fact that a countyr or countries could not equally provide banned food for all its citizens, no other reason. It is about control, and collectivism.

      Kissinger sounded like he had shit in his mouth,
      hard to understand. He probably is one of the most deceitful mass murderers in history.

        Kissinger was deep into the one world order. He also, besides Soros, was one of the more frequent visitors to the Obama Oval Office! These guys are not about capitalism and our USA, they are about power and distant rulers. The UN is their tool to accomplish much of it.

    The "Uncivil War".
    Longtime NBC evening news anchor Tom Brokaw happened to be on MSNBC’s Morning Joe when the tweet landed and got asked to weigh in:

    “[Trump] watches [F&F] because it reinforces what he believes,” Brokaw said. “Fox News…is on a jihad right now” against institutions of the government. “Newt Gingrigh looking into the camera and saying the FBI is a corrupt organization – three months earlier he’d said Bob Mueller is one of the great, distinguished public servants we have.”

    “So, we’re at war here,” Brokaw said.

    Trump’s tweet:

    Was @foxandfriends just named the most influential show in news? You deserve it – three great people! The many Fake News Hate Shows should study your formula for success!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2017

    Maybe someone should educate those stupid leftists that they have no idea what they're talking about. What about the methane from the oceans, heat island effect from cities around the world, India's and China's polluting power plants. What do they eat? Will they they tolerate tax on their food. They, the leftist environmentalists seem to be illiterate or of very low intelligence if they believe everything they see and hear from the fascist media. Also, those scientists who do all those all those computer generated climate models to explain the planetary environment they forgot to add in Dark Matter and Dark Energy. The Science Channel had a program on this subject, the scientists theorize that it could affect the Earth and everything on it. Maybe, Dark Matter/Dark Energy could cause climate change? Let the Leftist's ponder that!

      Control control control. They have to get their looting fingers into everything. For the manipulating leftist's they are taking advantage of people's good will and laziness .The creation of adversaries by labeling gives these lemmings relief from conscious thought.
      This link and others may cause you to question the science channels paid mouth pieces who are rarely experts in the dogma they profess. http://bigthink.com/philip-perry/dark... and these most recent findings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QOP0....

      But You are on the right track oh wise old Owlsrayne. The climate will always be in a shifting or changing fashion, because the sun is a fluctuating electric body.
      If you study the furnace that is the Sun. It is electric and more important than any population of creatures could ever be. You are right about the poisonous pollution particularly prevalent in China.
      You will find climate and global temps rise and fall with the solar cycles. We are have entered the Grand Solar Minimum the sun has virtually gone to sleep regarding sunspots and the solar flares, Coronal Mass Ejections. This is happening at the same time our Magnetisphere has weakened.
      This weakening of our shield allows for more penetration of cosmic rays. Those rays increase cloud formation that results in an albido effect.
      Solar radiance reflected back into space.
      See Adapt2030 on you tube.
      Happy New Year.
