And now, the UN is trying to morph into a global food police as they try and expand their regulatory power to include food production!
Morano: "This is nothing more than regulatory lifestyle controls by the UN. They are empowering themselves with this report...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."
"What's interesting is back in the 1970s, they predicted a food catastrophe based on the global cooling scare."
n a first world setting, the reality is that going entirely vegetarian for the rest of your life means you reduce your emissions by about 2%, according to a study of the environmental impact of Swedish vegetarians. To put this into context: either you could go vegetarian for the rest of your life, or you could reduce your emissions by the exact same amount by spending a little more than $3 a year using the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the first mandatory market-based program in the United States covering several states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Given all of this, it seems downright mean-spirited of the Manchester University scientists to try to shame people for having a summer barbecue.
Participating restaurants will add a 1 percent surcharge to their bills, with that money going into a fund aimed at helping farmers remove carbon from the atmosphere and adopt climate-friendly practices. The payoff for restaurants could come from increased business. They’ll be able to market themselves as “zero carbon,” which can appeal to customers looking for a good meal with a smaller environmental footprint.
- 'Particulate aerosol pollution reductions...led to an increase in surface radiative forcing'
It has been assumed COVID lockdowns and their associated reductions in human CO2 emissions would be a “step in the right direction” with regard to climate change mitigation. But a new study finds the particulate (aerosol) pollution reductions from less industrial and transportation activity in Europe during the months of March to May (2020) actually led to an increase in surface radiative forcing ~65 times greater than from business-as-usual CO2 emissions.
