No Meat, We are British (No Cars Either) By Richard Miller
Here is the future rushing up to destroy us. Will the sheeple let it happen yet again? Maybe “sheeple” is not a good word for them, since sheep don’t eat meat, but soon, none of us will either:
“Eating meat could become illegal due to the ecological damage it does to the planet, a top British barrister has said. Michael Mansfield QC believes the government should introduce tighter legislation to make activities which destroy the natural world illegal – and in the future this could even include banning the consumption of meat. “There are plenty of things that were once commonplace that are now illegal such as smoking inside,” said Mr Mansfield, who will present his ideas at the Labour party conference on Monday. “We know that the top 3,000 companies in the world are responsible for more than £1.5tn worth of damage to the environment with meat and dairy production high on the list. We know that because the UN has told us so. “I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous to think that one day it will become illegal,” he said. Currently 25 per cent of global emissions come from agriculture, with livestock contributing to 80 per cent of that. Industrial agriculture relies on fossil fuels to create fertilisers and machinery to harvest crops and transport animals. Farmed animals also produce half of the world’s methane emissions.
Research last year found that meat and dairy companies could overtake the oil industry as the world’s biggest polluters by 2050. “It is time for a new law on ecocide to go alongside genocide and the other crimes against humanity,” said Mr Mansfield. The top QC will be making a speech at the launch of the Vegan Now campaign at the Labour party conference where he will be sitting on a panel of experts debating the damaging effects of livestock farming on biodiversity and climate change. Juliet Gellatley, director of animal rights group Viva!, who will also be on the panel, said: “Thirty years ago people didn’t bat an eyelid if you lit a cigarette in a pub or restaurant. But now society accepts smoking is harmful and totally unnecessary and so we legislated against it. The same could happen with eating meat.” Experts behind the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found red meat had high greenhouse gas footprint because of the emissions livestock give out as well as the impact of land being cleared to grow crops for animal feed.”
Germany is already well down the road to the banning of meat with a meat tax coming:
“Germany could introduce a "meat tax" to protect the climate and improve animal welfare. Currently meat in the country has a reduced tax rate of seven per cent but the Social Democrat party and the Greens are arguing that this should increase to the standard 19 per cent, with additional revenue spent on improving animal welfare. "I am in favour of abolishing the VAT reduction for meat and earmarking it for more animal welfare," Friedrich Ostendorf, agricultural policy spokesperson for the Greens told The Local website. He said it mad "no sense" that meat was taxed at seven per cent while oat milk is taxed at 19 per cent. Albert Stegemann, the agriculture spokesperson from Angela Merkel's party Christian Democrat party was open to the plans put forward by Germany's Animal Welfare Association. He described them as a "constructive proposal". He said: "This additional income would have to be used as an animal welfare premium in order to support the livestock farmers in Germany during their restructuring." However Bernhard Krüsken, General Secretary of the German Farmers' Association was against the tax. Opposition parties including the Left Party and Alternative for Germany party also rejected the proposals. Researchers from the University of Oxford estimate that by 2020 there will be 2.4 million deaths attributable to red and processed meat consumption globally. This would have an associated healthcare cost of $285bn (£235bn). Developed countries consume double the global average of red and processed meat and experts belive raising prices would encourage people to eat healthier and less harmful foods. Current levels of meat consumption are also believed to be unsustainable on environmental grounds. Earlier this year researchers from City, University of London said developed countries need to eat 80 per cent less meat to safeguard the Earth from environmental disaster.”
In the US presidential candidate Andrew Yang wants to get rid of private car ownership:
“Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said the United States may have to eliminate private car ownership to combat climate change during MSNBC’s climate forum at Georgetown University Thursday morning.
He told MSNBC host Ali Velshi that “we might not own our own cars” by 2050 to wean the United States economy off of fossil fuels, describing private car ownership as “really inefficient and bad for the environment.” Privately owned cars would be replaced by a “constant roving fleet of electric cars.” A video posted by the GOP War Room shows Velshi asking Yang what measures he sees the world taking to fight climate change by 2050. “You have this ability to envision the future, right, with your proposals on universal basic income. You’ve played the whole chess game out and you see what it looks like on the other end. Play the chess game out on climate change,” Velshi said. “What does the world look like to you in 2050? What physically do you think we will do differently than we do today that will result in us fighting climate change?” “Well I mentioned before that we might not own our own cars. Our current car ownership and usage model is really inefficient and bad for the environment,” Yang said. “You guys all probably agree with this because you’re quite young,” he told the Georgetown University crowd, adding an anecdote about driving a 1985 Honda Accord as a young man. Yang then proposed an alternative to individuals owning their own cars.
“What we’re really selling is not the car, it’s mobility,” he said. “So if you have mobility that’s then tied into a much more, if you had like, for example, this constant roving fleet of electric cars that you would just order up, then you could diminish the impact of ground transportation on our environment very, very quickly.” Out-of-control technocracy, and yet a few months back there were dopes from the Dissent Right supporting Yang because of his free money scheme. Anything to fill up space on their blogs. The writing is clearly on the wall - unless this is fought, our days of eating meat are numbered. And, much of Australia’s agricultural industries will be gutted. The global push of environmental control is becoming a juggernaut, the globalists seeing how the sheeple and little lambs can be terrorised by the alleged threat of climate change. The pattern here is so obvious that it is enough to make one want to scream aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! Every freedom, everything that made human life worth living is being stripped away by the day. As Brett Stevens has said in another context about Texas, and its slide back into Mexico: “Texas is now half-minority. The nu-Texans do not care about your old symbols of victory, white man, so they are not going to fund them, nor are they going to visit and pay expensive fees just to keep those symbols afloat. You can rave on about the Constitution and freedom, but at the end of the day, people are biologically wired to care about their group and not yours. If you were one of the people talking about assimilation, integration, and “culture” meaning political culture, welcome to your Darwin Award!” So true for us, too.
Stevens also has an interesting take on climate change. Even if global average temperatures are rising, that does not necessary show anything about the climate change hypothesis, since heat increases could be totally a product of urbanisation and the creation of megacities: “Since 1950, the world’s urban population has risen almost six-fold, from 751 million to 4.2 billion in 2018.We bulldoze the forests, cover most of the surface in concrete that reflects water and sunlight, run engines constantly, and pack these places with people. Not surprisingly, they are emitting lots of heat, and that rises and displaces jet streams, causing chaos with world weather. It is not climate change that we are seeing, but people doing the same dumb stuff on enough of Earth’s surface to screw up its ecosystems.”
That might be worth thinking about as well, apart from the claim that the weather is not affected; no, I don’t think petty humans have the power to do that at all. And, perhaps what the elites really need to do is to have a massive beer tax, taking even this away from the plebs. Just maybe thern they will see something is wrong.
