When asked why he “frequently flies up the coast, just for a cheeseburger,” Harrison Ford told CFACT’s Marc Morano “I’m a vegetarian now, thank you” while attending the UN’s climate summit in Madrid. Meanwhile, UN delegates lined up to chow down on beef burgers at the Burger King in the UN food court – all while calling for meat eating to be discouraged and even banned. The “Impossible Whopper” vegetarian burger was not even an available option.
MADRID, Spain — The UN climate summit in Madrid has been hit with a whopper of hypocrisy as delegates and activists attending are lining up daily for hamburgers at the conferences’ onsite Burger King despite the UN warnings that eating meat is not climate-friendly.
UN activists/delegates pile into Burger King at the Madrid climate summit and chow down the meat with abandon.

With solutions like the Impossible Burger, consumers can drive the movement to create a food system consistent with the urgent goals of the Paris Agreement,” said Jessica Appelgren, vice president of communications for Impossible Foods.
