George Monbiot: ‘Beef is like a loaded gun, pointed at the living world’
Cathy Newman -Presenter
We debate the impact of farming on the climate crisis, with the vice president of the National Farmers Union, Stuart Roberts, the writer and activist George Monbiot, and Professor Corinne Le Quéré who’s a member of the UK Committee on Climate Change.
Host: George Monbiot, is that is it possible to be a sustainable beef farmer?
Monbiot: “No, it’s simply not and what the [UN] report shows — and it’s a really quite pathetic and mealy-mouth report —  but even so, it shows that the only hope we’ve got of getting through this century is switching to a plant-based diet…Beef is like a loaded gun pointed at the living world. It is an absolutely disastrous product.”
Climate Depot Reality Check: STUDY: Vegetarian Diets ‘Worse’ For ‘Climate Change’ – Three Times ‘More Harmful to the Environment’– Carnegie Mellon Study: ‘Eating lettuce is over three times worse in greenhouse gas emissions than eating bacon.’ – ‘Lots of common vegetables require more resources per calorie than you would think. Eggplant, celery and cucumbers look particularly bad when compared to pork or chicken.’Climate Depot’s Marc Morano comments: The war on meat-eating also includes the ubiquitous climate tipping points. UK greenie George Monbiot 2002 warned we only had 10 years! ‘Famine can only be avoided if the rich give up meat, fish and dairy’ — Now only 7 Months Left Until Starvation Sets In! — Monbiot on December 24, 2002: ‘Within as little as 10 years, the world will be faced with a choice: arable farming either continues to feed the world’s animals or it continues to feed the world’s people. It cannot do both’

Climate Depot’s note to Monbiot: “To borrow a phrase from former President Obama. Yes we can.” Did I mention Obama? See: Flashback 2011: Ignoring the advice of the NASA’s Hansen and IPCC’s Pachauri, The First Green President Obama serves plenty of meat at the White House

‘Food Police’ – Watch: Morano on Fox & Friends on UN Meat report: UN seeks ‘massive expansion of the UN’s regulatory power…lifestyle controls’

What’s interesting is back in the 1970s, they predicted a food catastrophe based on the global colling scare.

[CIA Report August 1974: “Potential implications of trends in world population, food production, and climate”: Excerpt: “There is, moreover, growing consensus among leading climatologists that the world is undergoing a cooling trend. If it continues, as feared…could have an enormous impact, not only on the food-population balance, but also on the world balance of power.”]
