Fox News Channel: Eat less meat to save the planet, a new UN report warns – Aug. 09, 2019 – 4:05 – A new U.N. report claims we must follow its strict meat-eating guidelines or face certain climate change doom. ClimateDepot.com executive editor Marc Morano reacts.
Kilmeade: The U.S. eats more meat they claim. The avg. American consumption of beef 57 pounds per year. Poultry 110lbs and pork rinds 50lbs. What do those numbers do to the environment?
Marc Morano: They claim that meat-eating is one of the most destructive environmental practices. Emissions from cows in past UN reports claimed to account for more emissions than all of the transportation sector — airlines, planes, automobiles, combined. [See: Cow ’emissions’ more damaging to planet than CO2 from cars: UN report: ‘Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together’] The UN has made the cow its primary target. This goes into the Green New Deal as well. The Green New Deal is going after meat-eating as well.
The former United Nations climate chief actually said they want to treat meat eat eating — banish meat-eaters to separate sections, like smokers, in restaurants. [See:Former UN Climate Chief: Meat eaters should be banished, treated ‘the same way that smokers are treated”]
The former UK climate advisor declared we need to make meat-eating have soaring costs. [See:Flashback: UK climate chief: ‘Successful’ UN global warming deal ‘would lead to soaring costs for meat and other foods’]
If your behavior — like eating meat — is at odds with the climate agenda you are at odds with the regulatory state. They are talking about huge taxes, a proposed 19% tax in Germany right now.
Kilmeade: If we have to get rid of the energy sector because now we have to tell the farmers and tell those ranchers to get rid of cattle, is anyone going to work anymore? Meanwhile, here’s a look at how much we have. They say America eats 25% of the world’s meat. So, again, all eyes on us.
Marc Morano: All eyes on us. What’s interesting is back in the 1970s, they predicted a food catastrophe based on the global cooling scare.
Morano: Now they are saying because of global warming, they claim we need to change meat habits. This is nothing more than regulatory lifestyle controls by the UN. They are empowering themselves with this report. They claim more than 100 experts came together. This is an open call by the United Nations for activist policies in taxes and regulation. And we have seen activists come out with ideas like the meat patch, like a nicotine patch, which would induce allergies to people so they won’t eat meat. It’s getting whackier and whackier. [See: Flashback: NYU Bioethicist Prof. Liao on Eating meat: Seeks to ‘Make ourselves allergic to those proteins…unpleasant reaction…The way we can do that is to create some sort of meat patch’]
Morano: They are dead serious. They are going after meat-eating in a way we have never envisioned.
Kilmeade: How soon before protesters go into a restaurant and find people with a steak and start screaming at them with loud signs. Meanwhile, the co-chair of the UN panel on climate change says this: ‘We don’t want to tell people what to eat.’ Actually, they do. ‘But it would indeed be beneficial for both climate and human health if people in many rich countries consumed less meat and if politics would create appropriate incentives to that effect.’ Appropriate incentives make it so expensive that people don’t want to eat meat.
Morano: ‘Appropriate incentives’ are taxes. Germany proposed a 19% tax on meat now to save the planet. This is what the entire agenda is about. It would have no impact on the climate. There are actually studies — one from Carnegie Mellon — showing that vegetables have three times the supposed climate impact that meat does. [See: STUDY: Vegetarian Diets ‘Worse’ For ‘Climate Change’ – Three Times ‘More Harmful to the Environment’]
Morano: It all depends on how foods are prepared. Organic farming much more land-intensive than traditional farming. See:Study: Organic farming may be making ‘climate change’ worse
Morano: There are all different ways to look at this. The UN has simplified it too. ‘We know best. We want to regulate how you eat.’
Kilmeade: And by the way, look it up we might show a little bit later said Sen. Elizabeth Warren got schooled by an Iowa farmer yesterday on a New Green Deal and everything else the Democrats stand for. Marc Morano. Thank you so much.
Morano: Thank you.

Morano: “The best is ‘Prince Harry speaks barefoot at this event. Nothing conveys moral authority like speaking barefoot. I almost didn’t wear shoes today because I wanted to come across with greater moral authority and a connection to the earth.”
