Watch: Red meat’s impact on climate change branded as ‘unscientific nonsense’

Menzies Research Centre’s Nick Cater says the idea that red meat is bad for the environment and climate is “unscientific nonsense”. The federal government has released its official diet advice which has a particular focus on the impact of certain foods on climate change. The move has sparked backlash from farmers who say it is driven by an ideological agenda against red meat. “It’s a particularly perverse and wrong look at the way agriculture works,” Mr Cater told Sky News host Rita Panahi. “There are more ex-vegetarians in Australia than vegetarians … that tells you something about it.”
