Meat should be taxed at the wholesale level to raise the price and deter consumption, says a new report from the UN’s International Research Panel (IRP). This will (supposedly) save the environment and prevent global warming.

“I think it is extremely urgent,” said Professor Maarten Hajer of Utrecht University in the Netherlands, lead author of the report. “All of the harmful effects on the environment and on health needs to be priced into food products.”

Hajer and other members of the IRP assert that livestock creates 14.5 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

Sneak the tax up on people

Rather than taxing the meat at the retail level (in supermarkets and shops), Hajer recommended taxing it at the wholesale level. “We think it’s better to price meats earlier in the chain, it’s easier,” said Hajer.

Don't know about anyone else, but the UN can kiss my ass.
Leave my ribeyes alone!!!

Just another tax we may be seeing, courtesy of the UN and the globalists who want to control what you eat.

Now this sounds authoritarian to me, but I'd be curious to hear what other people think.

Sounds like total BS to me. If people really want to solve the population problem more taxes isn't going to do a damn bit of good. What we need is some kind of sterility for pay system. Don't want kids? Already have enough kids? Step into the Sterile'o-tron 9,000 and do your part to save the planet! The whole idea of trying to FORCE people into certain behaviour is as outdated as thinking that spitting on a wound will heal it. You can't MAKE people change, you can educate them and then offer them a choice. I just can't understand how the powers that be are not hip to human psychology.

Think Soylent Green. These f**ks are messing with people i swear. Nestle Chocolate Pres/Vice Pres said taxing water was a good thing because, Ordinary people having access to Water was a Privelege.

These people are beyond help.

And do away with trillions in trade from ranchers all over the world and feed from the farming industry, contracts with rail companies to move cattle, the trucking industry, production plants shut down, workers out of jobs............
to stop cow farts.
Great solution. Pure genius.

Oh look, it's the Ministry of oxygen thieving bottom feeders trying to be important again.

Maybe they can just sit around and vote on the validity of consuming meat for the next 60 years and actually do # all about it, just like they do with everything else.

better still, why don't they form a Bacon security council and give Australia veto power, and send Israel a nasty (but Kosher) letter every 6 months???

Where are you getting it that cheap? I'm in a beef state and for 90/10 ground it's 5/6$ a pound now. Grass fed it $10+

Just as I suspected - chocka-block full of evil juice dripping meat, pork, chicken, beef - medium rare with a side of chips.

Mmmm, what were we talking about again?

next time i'm in NY i'm eating my Grass Fed Spiced Kobe Beef there, i wonder if they let me in in shorts and flipflops

errrr, maybe not



The experience overall seemed unprofessional and haphazard. We were first escorted to the security office across the street where the attendants took our picture and copied our IDs. They gave us sticker name tags to wear inside the UN, and got both of our names wrong, despite the fact that had our IDs. At the end of the visit they berated my friend for taking a name tag that didn't have her name on it. That's your incompetence problem, not ours.

The Delegates Dining room is unadorned and looks a bit like a wedding reception room, despite the fact that the rest of the UN that I've seen is beautiful. The food was okay, the dessert was definitely the highlight of the meal. It is a buffet style meal, so I guess you could say you can get your moneys worth if you want to eat a ton of food. Our server refused to take a photo of us when I asked, saying it was against the rules, but later we asked another server, who took it. I don't really understand their policy on photo taking, Overall the servers were very informal and were joking around with each other. We were hoping to meet people at the UN who were actually excited to be there and were proud of working for the UN. The only person who really fit the bill was our guide to and from the Delegates Dining Room. But when we were waiting for him to escort us back from the lunch, he took too long, like 10 minutes, and a security officer escorted us the rest of the way.

Why not? World population needs reduction. It's one thing i agree about agenda 21.

We torture and kill way too many animals for what? For more humans to simply exist? It's not morally right. If you EVER want highly-intelligent extraterrestrials to communicate with humanity on a nation-wide basis, then you will not support the torture of animals and overpopulation of human-kind.

Intelligent beings will not communicate with a human population that has very little compassion for lesser lifeforms.

Being a dog or cat lover does not count. Many animals have the intelligence of a dog or cat. If not much more so. They have the emotional intellect to feel higher emotions.

Unless human poplulation evolves beyond primal carnavoire, violent instincts, and petty emotions, it will never have a place in this universe. We WILL always be viewed as half-inteligent apes.

It would be funny if ET came in mass to farm humans just to show you you were wrong.

Another 'emergency' reason to drastically raise the price of some product. Remember when they raised the tax on cigarettes? They used the same ploy, 'to get people to stop smoking'.

They knew smokers would pay the higher price, regardless.

Beef lovers have to eat their beef.

Next week it will be some other disguised 'austerity' measure.
