Government Plan to Force Brits to Eat Less Red Meat to Meet Climate Change Targets
Get your protein from Insects and Algae say experts
Advisors on climate change have told the Government that the only way the UK will reach the climate change target of net zero is to force the British public to consume less meat. Advice and recommendation will not be enough to change Brits habits and new laws that will have to be stringently enforced to reach the target.
Christopher Snowdon of the Institute for Economic Affairs warns that the British government will only achieve its climate change targets by forcing people to eat less red meat. Snowden made the comments during an appearance on GB News after a leaked report by the National Food Strategy (NFS) which encouraged people to consume “edible algae and fermented protein alternatives such as microbes and plant biomass.”
Snowdon, who has been an eager supporter of of Covid Lockdowns said: “In principle, there could be a justification for government action…Boris Johnson has made some extremely ambitious climate change targets…and to do that, if he’s serious about doing it, at some point he’s going to have to stop advising people to fly less and eat less red meat and find ways of forcing people,”
“I think the government is going to really struggle to get the public onside once they see what is required to meet these targets,”
Last month, the British government enshrined climate goals into law. By 2050, the government wants Britain to be achieving net zero emissions, although critics have questioned how this is possible without monumental changes to our way of life and economic output.
The government’s Climate Change Committee (CCC), have decided that people being 'asked' to eat 20% less meat and dairy products will simply be ignored and that the only way to reach the targets is for legislation. Chris Whitty has already been asked to head up the new Office for Health Promotion (OHP) once he has finished the current pandemic plan. In the new department basically everything you eat will be looked at, and whitty has already drawn up a huge range of foods that will be taxed beyond reach of anyone but the wealthy or outlawed completely. This will be done under a mixed guise of 'health' and 'climate change' with the same type of propaganda, diktats and statistical lies being implemented as for the scamdemic.
The EU, in the midst of the pandemic, approved the sale of insects as a food source, and have put millions of Euros in to research into protein alternatives such as 'meat' grown in a lab. mmmmm tasty.
EU Approves Sale of Bugs as Food in Europe
Whilst the rest of the world questions the eating habits of nations like China, the EU's Food Safety Authority has approved the sale of bugs as food in European supermarkets.
“These have a good chance of being given the green light in the coming few weeks,” the secretary-general of the International Platform of Insects for Food, Christophe Derrien, told The Guardian this week.
Since 1997, the EU has required a “novel food” classification to allow the sale of products that had no history of being consumed by humans, meaning that the sale of bugs has been banned in countries like Spain, France and Italy for over two decades.
However, with the new approval, mass production of bug-based food is set to ramp up later this year. This includes Locusts, Crickets, Grasshoppers, and Mealworms, all currently found in markets right across China.
Christophe Derrien is looking forward to the sale of bugs as both a stand alone food and incorporated into existing products, arguing that they are a great source of protein and the production of bug food doesn’t harm the planet. “The sort of foods ranges from whole insects as an aperitif or as snacks to processed insects in bars or pasta or burgers made out of insects,” he said.
The promotion of eating insects has been strong over the last few years, particularly from some environmentalists who insist that we should switch to bug consumption and stop eating meat. Others have suggested that globalist publications like the Economist have been promoting the idea of eating bugs in an attempt to condition us to some, as yet unknown, global event.
Now the go ahead has been given by the EU, it is likely Britain will follow suit, so expect insects on supermarket shelves this autumn.
