People will have to be rationed to four modest portions of meat and one litre of milk a week if the world is to avoid run-away climate change, a major new report warns.
The report, by the Food Climate Research Network, based at the University of Surrey, also says total food consumption should be reduced, especially "low nutritional value" treats such as alcohol, sweets and chocolates.
Tara Garnett, the report's author, warned that campaigns encouraging people to change their habits voluntarily were doomed to fail and urged the government to use caps on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon pricing to ensure changes were made.

So it is safe for me to assume that you place no value on personal freedoms? Isn't it a man's right to eat whatever he pleases regardless of nutritional value? What other freedoms do you believe should be restricted?

The scond problem is that this advice makes very good sense, but it is presented in a way which links it to GW - which makes everyone go "oh, for gods sake, not again, just shut up and leave me alone" rather than making the very good point that if people want to be healthier, then they should cut down on meat and dairy, and live more as our parents/grandparents did after WWII.
Personaly, I cut back on meat a few years ago and now feel pretty healthy in the sense of what I eat.
The report also said that alarmist theories about meat production, and that everyone should become veggie or vegan to help combat "climate change" were rubbish, so I think people should really read the whole article before succumbing to the temptation of a knee jerk reaction.
