Tax meat until it’s too expensive to eat, new UN report suggests

“Did you vote for these people to tell you how to live? And who will receive the tax and what will they use it for?”

* * *

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.

Meat

“The evidence is accumulating that meat, particularly red meat, is just a disaster for the environment,” agrees Rachel Premack, a columnist for The Washington Post’s Wongblog.

“Agriculture today accounts for for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions that promote global warming,” says Premack, “and half of those agriculture emissions come from livestock.”

“Agriculture consumes 80 percent of water in the US – most of that being for meat, says Premack. “… For a kilogram of red meat, you need considerably more water than for plant products.”

“Meanwhile, Denmark is considering a recommendation from its ethics council that all red meats should be taxed,” Premack continues. “The council argued in May that Danes were “ethically obliged” to reduce their consumption to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”

The IRP report, which was released in May, “deserves serious consideration in the United States,” said Premack.

  1. The UN must be dissolved & flushed down the toilet as soon as possible. The organisation is a threat to civilisation & prosperity of all.
    It also attracts more loonies who would love to change the world, not for good or bad but just to make a mark in their pathetic twisted lives. Like a former PM of Australia K Rudd.

  2. If they want people to go hungry, unfortunately? Does it really need to be pointed out again that before there were cattle, there were bison, and before bison, even bigger bison, which presumably had even more of an environmental metabolic impact. This has no basis in reality.

    1. What would really help the enviroment would be if there was no U N , now thats a grand idea , better lives and prosperity. As far as i am concerned people that dictate who,why, and what people should be doing at any given time should be flushed, and as far as our climate warming the real scientists say that the earth has cycles unlike the pretend bought off scientists who spew their propaganda and show a lonely polar bear on a small piece of ice floating in the middle of nowhere, last time i read there were a record number of polar bears. GET OVER IT!

  3. It’s reaching a point you actually can’t tell the government anything, unfortunately, such as affordable alternatives. They don’t get out much, and some of them want people to starve, unbelievably.

  4. As a veggie I’m very offended by this blatant wrapping their view up and forcing it on people. People should be free to choose the foods they eat and they should accept the consequences of it. Individual liberty & individual responsibility.

    If we would get rid of the CAFO and herd them across the land like they used to do on their own it would actually bring areas back to life. I disagree with Allan Savory on the climate angle but he makes great points about using herd animals to revitalize environments.

    PS. If you are considering a veggie diet take B12 and EPA/DHA supplements regardless if they are from animal sources. More veggies have screwed themselves up without those than any other cause.

    1. Of course that proves that humans are not naturally vegetarian.
      We assimilate B12 from meat better than any other source.
      We also need fat for the brain to function properly. And lard has been proven to lower LDL, raise HDL, and lower triglycerides.

      1. B12 comes from bacteria
        thats where cows get it from
        thats where WE used to get it from.
        not washing food, and drinking from streams.

        my B12 levels are higher than most meat eaters.
        i get about %30 of my diet from my backyard.
        vegan 30yrs.

        there are plenty of high value fatty acids from artichokes, olives and lots of other veggies.
        much better than freaking lard.

        The UN has a great point.
        and this will provide MORE food to people if they stop eating meat.
        cows have to eat a lot of grain, and they use a lot of water and create a lot of waste.
        if that grain went to feeding humans instead, we would have an abundance of food… this is fact, look it up.

      2. Right on target!!! I consume a heavy animal fat diet, have zero health problems and appear to others as 25 years younger than my 58 years

  5. Wow, f**k the New World Order, the World Government. If we set up a community on Mars these are the people we should send.

  6. I can’t believe what this nut job is proposing. How do idiots like this get to positions of responsibility? Dispose of the UN as it has become a collecting point for terrorists and Third World leaders who want to bring down modern developed countries down to their level.

  7. We have a generation of blithering idiots who have assumed control of governing institutions. The “less is more” generation of gloom and doom bleakness and hopelessness. A godless generation who worships at the alter of environmentalism and wants to compel all to adopt their beliefs.

  8. This is where we are heading if the globalists get their way. A one world government with leftist idiots like this eventually imposing their stupid ideas on the rest of us. Lock and load conservatives it’s going to be one hell of a war.

  9. Why don’t he suggest starting killings of humans, because they produce even higher percentage of greenhouse gas emissions?

  10. I have a better idea, eliminate the UN and all of it’s self-righteous elitists who think they somehow have power over how the rest of Humanity lives.

  11. Well now, let’s follow that logic to its “logical” conclusion…
    There are a lot more people than there are cows, pigs and chickens. People pass gas, too. We ARE talking about the ridiculous idea that animal faarts cause global warming, ARE WE NOT??!!!
    Then the problem can be much more effectively addressed if we kill people to stop them from passing gas and serve them up as steaks to address the desire for meat.
    Perfectly sound reasoning to a leftist, is it not?!
    We could call it Hillary Green!
    (Waddya bet THIS post gets censored??!!!)

    1. they aren’t talking about farts, they are talking about the processing of the meat which causes greenhouse gases. if it were farts then they would want us to eat more cows so there are less of them on the planet.

  12. “Agriculture today accounts for for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions that promote global warming,” says Premack, “and half of those agriculture emissions come from livestock.” Why don’t we keep the livestock and get rid of whatever is producing the other “half.”

  13. This is absolutely correct; tax meat at $500/pound. In addition, coal should be taxed at $2000/ton and gasoline at $600/gallon.

    Then, government can pay for all we eat, free houses and free college along with free healthcare, etc.

    All the horses that will be back on the streets will contribute tons of horse manure that can be composted to spread over fields.

  14. Hell! Who can afford meat? Only people on public assistance. who load their carts with best cuts at the grocery. We sure don’t have the opportunity to have it much on our table. It’s already too expensive. I already have an elderly mother who has to take vitamin B12 shots because she does not get enough mean.

    1. Actually, the best cuts are the cheapest: chicken, beef and calf liver, chicken gizzard and hearts, beef heart, pork neck bones, etc. The internal organs are where almost all of the nutrients are. During the days of slavery, slave owners would give the slaves the internal organs and keep the steaks, etc. for themselves. The slaves were noted for their good health and longetivity (many would live past 100 in excellent health) while the slave owners would die far younger.

  15. The UN pin heads will still be eating meat.

    80% of agriculture water use is for rice. Meat is way down on the list of water usage.

    I will be selling meat on the side of the road right next to my tax free whole milk.

  16. The UN was founded to prevent war. They ought to focus on that charter (at which they have failed miserably and continue to do so). They were not established to socially reengineer the world. If any country chooses to follow advise from the UN, I wish its citizens good luck, they will need it.

  17. Tax these fools at the UN for being lying idiots. There is no human made global warming. The sun’s cycles control the temperature on earth. These idiots just want to take people’s money and tell them how to live. Enough of these fools. Kick the UN out of the US and secede from this corrupt organization.

  18. Screw these globalist idiots. When the time comes, and it seems to be just around the corner, the rational people will exterminate these globalist morons. I know which side I will be on….and we are armed to the teeth and will prevail against these wimps.

  19. Rocky the Squirrel and Bullwinkle the Moose have more common sense than the entire UN put together. Tax meat until everyone stops eating it. How arrogant. How stupid. How impossible to do.

  20. These people try to pass themselves off as scientists to the world and in doing so make a disgrace out of the entire scientific community. One would think that at some point the rest of the scientific community would rise up to defend themselves from being lumped in with these globalist cult god worshipers.

  21. This social engineering by bureaucratic collectivists is why the the EU will disintegrate much like the USSR did.

  22. How about ever Leftist-progressive a_ _ hole who believe this BS stop eating meat altogether. Let them lead by example!

  23. In the U.S.A. we have a thing called the 1st Amendment, which according to the supreme court, communicates that state sponsored religion goes against our constitution. Tax payer funding of the modern form of pantheism referred to as global warming, would be a direct violation of the 1st amendment. This religion is widely opposed and disproved by the use of logic and truth.

  24. This is stupid. How many animals will die when you plow a field to plant various crops? What about all the water consumption required to keep crops alive? Crops that could die at any time.
    Sounfs to me this about control and controlling people as well as food starve. Many will die and many will end up nutritionally deficient. These people are retarded social justice warriors.

  25. Tax the good professor for each word he says until it is to expensive for him to open his mouth.

  26. The goal is always their wealth, power, and control. They could give a rat’s rear about anyone or anything else.

  27. These people have no clue and are just power hungry. They won’t be satisfied until all the planet is in food lines like in the Communist countries! If humans can make pollution as they say that creates climate change, global warming, global cooling or the next ice age, then humans can reverse all of this without starving everyone!

  28. Professor Maarten Hajer you should be thrown in jail for life and they should throw away the key with your Orwellian, Socialist agenda. WHO are you to make these demands to Tell and tax people what to eat, are you INSANE!
    Prices are already to high as it to have a meal they wish to have. And secondly, we the people are getting real tired of people like you telling us what to do !

  29. if america doesnt wake up and realize that the u.n. and its made up organizations are an attempt to steal american soverignty, they will be overtaken by a political army bent on its destroyed standard of living and conquest in a world order of psychopathic idiots claiming to help mother gyia and the climate at thier very expense!

  30. I’d like to invite the UN to take their organization out of the US and find some other patsies to give them their funding.

  31. You evil hypocrites! If you really cared you’d do something about all the nuke plants, nuke waste, Chernobyl, FUKUSHIMA ad naseum. You’d stop global GEOENGINEERING & CONTROLLING THE WEATHER! You would stop with GMO & other HOSTILE satanic destructive practices! And on and on…
    The UN is the foundation for the New World Order, under their leader satan! Shalom

  32. Another reason why the USA MUST withdraw all funding from the UN, withdraw its membership and kick it out of the country. How DARE they force THEIR lifestyle choices down everyone else’s throat?

  33. How will those of us that financially want to stand on our own two feet be able to afford even the most basic items? All aspects of our lives have become so complicated to navigate and prices on almost everything are fast becoming out of reach for the average American. No one seems to care that it is the everyday average American that keeps much of this country running. My heart hangs heavy as the American dream has almost been obliterated.

  34. I know, let’s take old people and make smoothies out of them! We’ll call it Soylent Green!! That way, we can reduce SS payouts, reduce carbon impact and solve traffic problems!!!

  35. This isn’t new. The entire concept behind SMART meters (and all the SMART devices in your home that also spy on you) is to provide government a means of throttling your energy use in real time, PLUS getting detailed information on your internet and energy use. The term they use is “granular information.

    At bottom, they want to increase our energy costs to a punitive level in order to limit and control our energy use.

    Same thing for gasoline use. Remember Jack Lew blandly saying responding to Congress as to the massive increases in gas prices? “Oh, we anticipate gas prices to reach European levels.” Translated: up to $9 / gallon at the time of his statement, while Obama smiled and stated that his plans would necessarily cause energy prices to skyrocket.

    Hence his war on coal. Hence his hare-brained, and expensively disastrous efforts to shift the US prematurely to solar and wind power (costing the US taxpayer billions in failed companies, cooked and chopped migratory birds, etc.. )

    At bottom, it is NOT the function to control and limit the energy use and eating habits (e.g. the horrible lunches school kids are subjected to under Moochelles’ Nanny-state plans… where do they have that authority?)

    But it’s something those who consider themselves RULERS not leaders — something you might find in a corrupt tinhorn African dictatorship — NOT something anywhere envisaged by the US Constitution.

  36. “Red meat won’t kill you…GREEN MEAT will kill you. Red meat will save your life!” Chris Rock

  37. This is a classic Leftist ploy. Same way the Dems want to enact de facto gun control. They want to tax either the ammo, or the guns–or both–out of existence.

    The UN is a very bad thing.

  38. BTW, Ms. Premack, your parents must be proud of you for your out-of-the-box thinking. I’ll bet that you’re an East coast liberal that votes straight ticket Democrat and you still live with your parents because you can’t make enough money due to your Liberal Arts degree in order to pay off your student loans. You also voted twice for Obama because you think he’s the smartest person in Washington. How am I doing so far?

  39. People that buy into the Globing Warming hoax should commit suicide in order to save the planet. The rest of us can mourn their loss over a nice juicy steak!

  40. It is time to close down the UN for renovation. That is renovation of the idiots that think that they run it.

  41. “The council argued in May that Danes were “ethically obliged” to reduce their consumption to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”The IRP report, which was released in May, “deserves serious consideration in the United States,” said Premark.”

    You really just can’t teach these stupid freaking fools can you. More BS from the global warming crowd, that needs to be ignored.

    1. The latest studies I’ve seen indicate omnivorous eating provides food for more people than veganism or vegetarianism. Soils for growing aren’t equal & neither is weather on a worldwide basis. Some lands won’t support human edible vegetable crops but will support human edible animal “crops”. Large areas of the planet prevent vegetable crop growth by winter weather. Other large are as prevent the same by drought or monsoon seasons. These UN people are simply desirous of reducing human population on a vast level by starvation & have admitted they wanted that reduction.

  42. This continued onslaught to tell people how to live, breath and die..will only stop when the PEOPLE ..put and end to those that render these various edicts and recommendations…and also to those that fund the same….imho

  43. Another reason for the UN to be dissolved!! Who the hell are these people ??? In the real world, they would have to platform to spread this idiocy !!

  44. Thanks for this, Robert! By “easier”, I’m certain Pr. Hajer meant “politically”. It’s never easy for an overpaid bureaucrat to admit he must be accountable to the people. You can get these people to say anything you want, if you give them grants and review.

  45. Yep. Keep meat away from the low income groups. But elites like the Dutch author of this criminal UN report will not go without. Is there a soul who doubts this?

  46. I see no difference between the United Nations and the platform of the US Democrat Party.

  47. In other news, meat is being stolen and sold on the black market. Thanks for creating crime by saving the planet from natural weather cycles.

  48. So their solution is what, kill all the livestock? And if so, why not just kill them and eat them, like we are already doing?

  49. Have they taken into account the extent of the noxious gases emitted by the tyrannical scum of the UN and EU?

  50. The UN is a disaster for national and individual sovereignty. The US should stop funding it. Vote Trump, he’ll see to that.

  51. How about we tax the UN for being headquartered in the USA? I am weary of third world have nots trying to tell everyone else that we need to give up what we have worked for….

  52. I guess those of us who are alergic to soy, peanuts, and the entire legume family will just be out of luck. IDIOTS!! some people need their beef and yard bird! And livestock using up 80% of the earths water ? what?? That’s a hard pill to swallow especially since the cows drank up all the water.

  53. This is what they want in the TTP trade deal Obama & Clinton our pushing for. .. as in the TTP … Who has the say in what is done ?? and just Who Benefits from it ?? … bet it’s nobody I know or voted for …. enough said

  54. the world hasn’t warmed in 18 years. CO2 is like one ten thousandth of “greenhouse gases.” without CO2, trees couldn’t grow or even live. wtf are these idiots smoking?

  55. It’s decades past time when these imbecilic sophist control-freak power-hungry greedy self-serving misery-inducing depraved godless psychotics were rounded up and placed together on their own special “Utopian” island where they could tell each other how to live.

  56. Anyone with half a brain and even a little bit of integrity knows that all this climate change and global warming is bullshit. It has been going on for eons before SUVs and cow farts! I think we need to do away with vegetarians-they eat the same things cows eat and fart more than meat-eaters. Crooked scientists seeking grants and corrupt leaders push this agenda to line their pockets.

  57. And arrest all the farmers, and ranchers! And all the organics, and all the … And all of them too … And get those as well! “Blue hat splat” is my favorite song!

  58. Tax it until no one can afford to eat it, except the elite. Like everything else, WE should use less, but not them. Turn up your thermostat in in summer, turn it down in winter, turn-off all lights except the room you’re in so that they can afford to keep their 5 estates that each eat more energy than your whole neighborhood. Walk, ride a bike or mass transit, so they can afford to fuel their yachts and private jets that use as much fuel in one trip as your family cars use in a whole year. NOW, eat less meat, I read not long ago that food scientists think cock roaches could make an excellent protein source for the masses. And our governments implement the taxes to price us out of the markets. Government for the People, but only those people who can flip $100000 or so into a campaign coffer.

  59. What if we the so called free peoples of the world would dictate to the ruling elite what kind of foods to buy or what kinds of foods to eat. How well would that go over with those in the elite ruling class who are trying so hard to impose more and more control over we ordinary working class type folks. (I mean used to be working class folk). Collectively I bet they all would definitely tell the rest of us where to stick that idea and then tell us where to go.

  60. Then people will start eating people. Great solution. We end up with a planet that is pure and uninhabited by anyone. But, at least the air will be clean and global warming will cease.

  61. Tax the UN out of existence and out of the US. We did not elect any of these yokels and they do not represent us. They are bought and paid for by the Rockefellers, whose bidding they do.
    They are only interested in lining their own pockets.. just like Hillary and the rest of the DC mafia.

  62. The UN is a worthless organization that the planet would be better off with out. That is my best opinion of the organization when it just wastes my tax dollars and does little else. If it ever gets the power to actually do some of its stupid ideas like this one on taxing meat the UN should be defunded and thrown in the trash bin of history. As for the individuals in the UN the best of them are lazy clerks living off the tax payers and the worst of them (and likely a majority) are just slimy spies.

  63. The UN was founded by the American communist party, built on land donated by the communist rockefellers, for the purpose of ‘keeping Americans in their place’.

    It’s long been a cheap, cruel, bunch of communists, pedophiles, dope peddlers, whoremasters, drug addicts, crackpot psychopathic professors, and professional losers.

    This latest sham report from some nutcase is all of a piece; no surprise.

    That is why one day in the not far off future, our Creator will scrape this ‘disgusting thing which causes desolation’ from the face of the planet and never allow anything like it to ever return.

    In more practical eras, this professor would have been locked up at the lunatic farm, to be fed once daily and hosed off every week.

  64. The talk of the day back in the mid-70’s was of a possible ice age in the future. The population of the World was approximately four billion then. Fast forward less than fifty years later and the incessant hand wringing is of global climate change. The term global warming worked for a while, until the politicians realized they needed to cover their bases in case temperatures stagnated, or God forbid, managed to drop. Oh, yeah, the population of the World is now approaching eight billion. Doubled in just fifty years. If there is any thinning of the herd, it should be the human herd.

  65. This is outrageous, biased, and comeyely unethical. The UN cannot dictate. Why havent the UN taxed alcohol, so much that people wuit drinking dince alcohol related deaths are uber high and the cost of medical for people who drink is very high. But oh yeah, the author of this facists suggestion like his alcohol so of course like an elite he wants to suffer and pay the price but he and his elitists friends like the Clintons can do as they please.

  66. The United Nations has become a fascistic organization devoted to keeping thugs in power, people in poverty, and has outlived its value to mankind.

  67. Global warming is just a big joke until some stupid politicians use it as an excuse to steal money via taxation.

  68. How about just tax Obama peronally, and Leonardo dicaprio, seeing as their 2 of the major creators of CO2 levels, higher than cow farts.

  69. The elites are at it again! They know best! Tax meat so only the rich can afford it! “Let them eat cake!” The little people will do and act the way they say. How else will they get to fly around the world at our expense and live their grand lifestyle?

  70. If coarse these global elitist want to nano manage our lives. This is all about growing global governance and little to do about the environment.

  71. Governments are formed to secure the people’s safety and to protect their rights and freedoms. If I were to be 100% convinced that red meat production and consumption will result in the ultimate doom for life on Earth at a date a thousand years earlier than the next worst cause for a planet’s demise I would still be 100% against the UN proposal to price red meat out of the market. Quality of life (freedom) is more precious to me than life. The UN can sell its brand of tyranny to someone else, not me.

  72. This will become reality with a Clinton presidency, UN Agenda 21. Deindustrialize,Depopulate. None for you but all for thee! The “Chosen Ones” will kill to keep control of all resources. Water,gas,coal,food including livestock to feed on while starving the masses.

  73. Peons will be eating veggie burgers while the elite globalist crime bosses like Obama, Clinton, Buffet and Soros will be eating Wygue steak.

  74. They need to do more research. This is not just about saving the environment, they are now considering pushing an agenda that could cause ramifications on evolution. Human consumption of meat is proven to drive brain growth, particularly the fat. You don’t receive this from plants, to include plants could not sustain an entire world of people due to growth life, nutritional value, and lack of calories. Global warming is a dumb scam, and it’s gone on long enough. Stop these people

  75. We really could benefit from easing up on beef, but there are plenty of sustainable meat animals to choose. The future is not bugs and kale, it’s rabbits and quail.

  76. Global cooling, warming, or climate change [whatever they are calling it now-a-days] did not work for generation of revenue, so they have to come up with another “sacred cow” [couldn’t resist].

  77. Horseshit! What a scam, when God created the earth he told us to use it up. You idiots are trying to rule something that you have no right or business doing, beware you will account for your lies…

    1. “Zero”, makes sense to Me !

      Question though ?

      Were you born with “0” brain cells or did it happen over time ???

      Now go back to “zero”……

  78. It’ll be a cold f.ing day in hell before anyone takes away my steak, especially a damn UN organization. The U.S. should have blown off the UN years ago!

    1. “should have blown off” ?

      Should have blown “up” the UN !

      Why is Satanland located in the U.S. ?

      Send that thing to Europe, it should never have been here ? ! ?

  79. dear assholes, go fuck yourself…now I will sit down to my juicy sirloin steak….sincerely, mr free will

    1. “I will choose a path that’s clear, I will choose Free Will”

      Someone from Canada said it, many Moons ago…

  80. The ONLY morally justified reason for any tax is to raise revenue. Anything else is simply social engineering, on your dime.

  81. Of course it will still be available to the elite rich who are telling us that we have to stop eating it. Just like they will still be able to buy gas and jet fuel, air condition their homes and generally live a life blissfully apart from the burdens of the global warming religion.
    Yes, that’s the ticket.

  82. Do these people also plan to kill off all wild game; deer, mountain goats and sheep,and all horses, the cattle in Africa where some tribes depend exclusively on those cattle for food, the camels that are still a means of transportation for some in Asia. I? thought that the environmentalists were so against anyone killing animals. But if they want to get rid of domestic animals because they are a danger to the environment, then wouldnt they have to destroy all wild life,too. Don’t they produce gas, also??

  83. In the United States, many people have already substantially reduced beef purchases in their grocery budgets, for the cost of many meats, especially beef, do not coincide with almost two decades of stagnating wages. People who live at the poverty level, making under $10 an hour in the south, or who receive a small Social Security check, must bypass a small package of hamburger, with a couple pounds priced around $10. Ground beef, not even premium, is the new steak dinner for many people, and it is purchased on special occasions. When globalist “saviors” of climate change hysteria monkey with food prices, it does not affect the upper middle class and financial elitists; it only sets a new low in the divide between the working class servants and the new unelected bureaucratic lords who want to micromanage everything about the serf’s life. This is but another example of why people all over the west want to take back their national sovereignty with demands for true representation from our renegade politicians. They should be servants of the people, subject to citizen oversight and transparency, not schemers working behind the scene to subvert the will of the people.

  84. The UN people are fucking Crazy Idiots! Give me a fucking Break. I can’t wait for Yahshua to return and straighten all of these demonic manifestations out!

  85. Here’s an ideal, Why dont all those global warming nutjobs do their part and stop breathing !!! After all they are the biggest contributors of carbon dioxide everytime they open up thier mouths 🙂

  86. Here’s an ideal, Why don’t all those global warming nutjobs do their part and stop breathing !!! After all they are the biggest contributors of carbon dioxide everytime they open up their mouths 🙂

  87. I have incisors. I will eat meat. A lot of your green agenda is a scam. You know it, I know it and most of the civilized world is sick of your global meddling. Put that in your blue helmet. Tax this mlb

  88. I understand stupid people have a right to think what they want and to live their lives as they see fit. But, when they begin to think they have a right to impose their stupidity on me we have a serious problem. Don’t tread on me or suffer the consequences. Leave my family, religion, guns, consitution and food alone, or prepare to fight.

  89. Kill a farmer…starve the peasants to death.
    Makes sense to me.
    I think you liberals have created the next Purge Movie.
    Destroy the farms…starve your neighbors to death.

  90. If you do this, only the wealthy will get to enjoy eating meat while the rest of society is forced into vegetarianism.

  91. Another example of over-regulation: Here in South Africa a sugar tax is now levied on soft drinks, ostensibly to combat obesity. In a country where as a rule political leaders and government officials (especially police) lead the way in obesity.

  92. Who the bleep are these loons who think they should be engineering social policy on what I eat? To prevent global warming? Really?!?!?!?!?!?
    Good grief.

  93. “Climate change” is a symptom not a cause. No politician in the world will talk about the real problem which is the cause of “climate change” because they don’t have a solution. There is no politically acceptable solution. Over-population. “Climate change” serves as a good distraction as well as helps push their globalist agenda. Once the serfdom of the world’s population is fully in place, then forced conception will be deployed – possibly by chemical means without public disclosure.

  94. And stupid leftist/progressive idiots still wonder about the need for the second ammemdent. Unfortunately, the EU had already been flushed. Hopefully the remaining free people of the world will be able to salvage Western Civilization.

  95. Oh..now your telling us what we can or cannot eat…who are you people? You can’t police the world…period.

  96. This is exactly the kind of garbage that many people are tired of, they want to completely control peoples lives and take away their freedom then call it a sacrifice for the earth.

  97. Isn’t time we as a people press to withdraw from the UN? The theft that occured during the gulf war, the abuses of our laws by the diplomatically protected members and the general fecklesness of the institution are all signs of a corruption that we fund with our taxes.

  98. These bureaucrats are in the employ of an organization dominated by mass murders, despots, and kleptocrats. Why anyone, particularly anyone who values Western Civilization, should give them the time of day when they hold forth on topics which are none of their business is quite the mystery.

  99. UN is mafia run. When you tax stuff too much, the Mafia is then in control of those luxury goods. UN is ran by the mafia, so why wouldn’t they be for it.

  100. Should tax the UN for their negative effect on people brains with the mental mush they shell out! They and their child raping so called peacekeepers!

  101. The vegheads are behind this. They are using the global warming hoax to advance their over-the-top agenda.

    Watch for other groups to follow their lead on this.

  102. I would love seeing the UN tax meat in the U.S. because in doing so…our population will become so enraged with the communists
    running…the UN..that President Trump will have no problem
    terminating our membership in that money guzzling obsolete
    hustle! Oh and by the way…you UN members that think you can
    break our laws while on the streets of New York City? You can pay ALL THE FINES YOU HAVE IGNORED FOR THE last 50 YEARS OR SO! Shut the the lights off on your way out of the country….
    we wouldn’t want to cause more “global warming” by leaving them on!

  103. Gay vegetables should not be telling normal people what to eat, and how to live. Will you take meat away from wolves, and grizzly bears? Why not? they are omnivores as well. Get a fing clue, and get a real job.

  104. Let us not tax just the meat… but the asses of all living things. Oh, wait…we already are!

    Mac

  105. I think e shoud pass a special tax on fools that suggest we price things too high to eat or to use. Global warming is a scam, unproved science not settled..at all.
    Let this guy pay 500% more for his groceries, as the diesel trucks that deliver his food to the supermarkets run up CO2 emissions as well.
    what a gruberite tool, as globalists and progressives aim to do all sort of foolish things to the economy. Lets all tie our hands behind our backs, so the Chinese and Indians don’t even have to sneak up on us to destroy our economies.

  106. With the full backing of our traitorous federal monster government, the UN is ramming ‘Agenda 21’ and ‘Common Core’ down the throats of the world, the UN’s World Bank is complicit in forcing poor farmers off their own land in Africa and South America for corporate and endowment ‘tree farm/carbon credit’ investments, is deeming sovereign resources off limits, trying to eliminate (citizen’s only) the right to bear arms, our country’s sovereignty and our individual freedoms and now trying to force a ‘world’ climate change tax and ‘world’ wealth tax on us AND under the guise of saving us from asteroids the UN is trying co-opt our US space program, it’s technology, resources and getting control of the internet.

    YOO HOO! Imagine the savings if the USA stopped funding the UN and reduced our federal monster government back to it’s Constitutional mandate (before it self creates it’s own full blown tyrannical plan)

    Too many layers and layers of non-producing federal government and UN parasites in suits need evermore revenues for their opulent salaries, lifestyles and pensions. And most UN employees don’t even pay any tax (some ‘internal’ tax …whoppee).

    … So, how many UN ‘world’ (foreign) pensioners are we funding with our taxes?

    Imagine how much extra money we would have if we defunded the world’s behemothic tax parasites and redundant layers of government that are becoming more and more tax hungry and authoritarian towards it’s citizens.

    The UN and all of it’s huge organizations, commissions and agencies including the IMF and World Bank, generate no revenues, are not subject to the laws of any country it operates in, pays no tax, produce nothing, is dictating ‘world’ regulations, confiscating your wealth through federal taxation and backdoor taxation through complicit federal government agencies like the EPA.

    One dollar spent on a ‘FEDERAL’ level cost 10 times more than if that same job was done on a ‘STATE’ level, logic would point to keeping federal government no bigger than our constitutional mandate, notice the federal government taking states property and states rights away form states and handing control of US properties and law making over to the UN?

    Now add in the cost of the UN and the obscene waste and inefficiency of ‘world’ dollars:

    Wikipedia the UN and see how BEHEMOTHIC it now is with all it’s agencies, impotent peace keeping forces, organizations, commissions and each comes with their own building complexes, vehicles, uniforms, equipment, support complexes, staff, salaries, travel, security, food and energy expenses, conferences AND the now hundresds of thousands of UN retirees (mostly foreign) and their pensions, perks and benefits.

    YOO HOO, who do you think is paying for all of that?

    WAKE UP, maybe next time you look at your pay check or worry about your own pension.

    With the full backing of our traitorous federal monster government, the UN is ramming ‘Agenda 21’ and ‘Common Core’ (which is now proselytizing Islam to our children, Google it) down the throats of the world, the UN’s World Bank is complicit in forcing poor farmers off their own land in Africa and South America for corporate and endowment ‘tree farm/carbon credit’ investments, is deeming sovereign resources off limits, trying to eliminate (citizen’s only) the right to bear arms, our country’s sovereignty and our individual freedoms and now trying to force a ‘world’ climate change tax and ‘world’ wealth tax on us AND under the guise of saving us from asteroids, the UN is trying co-opt the US space program, it’s technology, resources and an on going effort to control the internet and MORE OF OUR TAXES.

    YOO HOO! Imagine the savings if our country stopped funding the UN.

    Lagarde’s (IMF) salary is over $300,000 + per year PLUS tens of thousands in ‘stipends’. and she PAYS NO TAX.

    “most UN employees pay no tax”.

    The IMF and World Bank are UN agencies of now countless agencies, commissions and organizations, one big Trojan Horse and tool of a few dynastic families, sucking the wealth, sovereignty, freedoms and life out of the world.

    The IMF is nothing more than a world asset stripping debt collector for the western alliance globalist elites.

    Global taxation, a ‘one world’ currency and open borders are all part of the globalists plan to eliminate sovereignty of nations.

    10 nations that control the world’s gold – MarketWatch
    Oct 20, 2012 … The International Monetary Fund is the third-largest official holder of gold, with more than 2,814 tonnes.

    Where’s all that IMF gold coming from? (Ask NATO< Libya? Egypt? Tunisia? Ukraine? soon Syria?) And Germany can't get their's back?

    The IMF is getting fantastically rich, while the world is collapsing into poverty.

    The IMF is ANOTHER UN agency, it is not a 'nation', it has been deemed 'supranational sovereignty' (deemed by the UN's 'International Court of Justice' -yep, another UN agency). so the UN creates an agency to deem itself and it's other agencies supranational sovereignty over the world and makes it's own laws, decides it needn't pay any tax nor provide any revenues -sweet deal if your a UN employee.

    UN? Proven corrupt, unelected, made up mostly of 3rd world dictatorships.

    NATO, the UN and all of it's agencies, commissions, organizations, etc (UN agencies include the IMF and World Bank), all have the same boss, they're all really just tentacles of the giant, globalist vampire banksters squid.

    Notice the elimination of individual accountability? 'NATO' decided this or that, the 'UN' deemed this or that, and we must all comply regardless of our rights, freedoms and laws of OUR OWN COUNTRY. Any official that your taxes fund needs to be thrown out if they support the UN. The working tax payer needs to be mobilized against funding the UN.

    We have to stop giving credibility and decision making powers to unelected foreign entities that we are forced taxed to fund while they supplant our own country’s laws and sovereignty and take control over our resources.

    Too many layers and layers of non-producing federal government and UN parasites in suits needing evermore revenues for their opulent salaries, lifestyles and ever growing pensions (and who are getting more and more authoritarian and predatory toward it's citizens).

    Time to reject 'federal money', take 'federal land' ownership and control back to the individual states it BELONGS TOO, re-instate all states rights, defund and take away the UN’s ‘supranational sovereignty’, restitution of it's assets (starting with the IMF's stolen gold hoard) claw back their pensions (US taxes for foreigners) and kick them the hell out of our country.

  107. Oh what a load of polony … Cows have been wandering the for 1000s of years grazing on grasses of the land, and this here is why they now have problems… modern farmers feed there cows on grains not grasses. As with humans, cows don’t process the gliadin protein and cause all sorts of health issues for the cow and us., Of which farting is one of them. Just take a step back and think…. Does it look Natural to you to have cows grazing on the land line nature intended or do you think it looks perfectly OK cows fenced in eating only grains cause there’s nothing else to eat.

  108. Yeah well I think the UN should just set themselves
    on fire and save us all a bunch of shit.
    Its TIME TO REVOLT against all these people who think
    they can run our lives

  109. Why is an organization that was formed to stop world War 3 from happening now involved in what we eat and all the other stuff they try to force on us?

  110. Aww how lovingly caring! The UN and its filth of progressive agendas want to starve the little people enough to save the world while they eat filet mignon! Let’s expedite this immediately! I can’t wait any longer — the climate is changing everyday and it’s my fault for breathing!

  111. The UN is a f–king joke! It’s among the most corrupt organizations on earth, nothing more than a band of despots out for their own gain! Or was that the Clinton foundation? Same mentality and goals, same results!

  112. The planet made up of mostly what?
    I’Il let all the second graders answer first.
    Additionally, People are Hoarding water in their body systems by eating meat.
    Huh? News to me.

  113. See, this is what the left/progressives always do. They are NEVER content to let people live as they wish. We must always live according to the rules laid down by these self-appointed “ELITES” who believe they always know best. I am so tired of such arrogant and aggressive behavior; and it always seems to come from the left/progressives…ALWAYS!

  114. In America, we have the 2nd Amendment which secures our right to own firearms for the purposes of revolt against tyranny, but we also use them to hunt. Tax away! I know where I can get meat for next to nothing.

  115. I have a enter idea….raise the rent on the UN building so high, the UN gets the hel of the UNited States

  116. The UN plan — Deprive the poor of meat while the UN elites feast on whatever they want with the money they take from the poor to fund themselves.

  117. Or we can just off half the human population, which would work much better for everyone and everything.

  118. Another problem caused by government and the solution is more government.
    Government subsidizes the meat industry.
    If they did not meat would have been more expensive a long time ago and people would eat alot less of it.
    You don’t need to tax it and feed the beast.Government needs to get uninvolved in almost everything it does.

  119. The Paris climate summit where 200 world leaders, 40,000 delegates , 1000’s of the worlds media attended created an historic deadly carbon foot print. They should all be arrested for crimes against the planet.

  120. They’ll want to do the same thing with ammunition.

    At what point do we say to the UN “We’ve had enough with your petty, socialistic demagoguery” then change the locks on the UN building, kick all of these worthless sacks out of the country and get back to LEADING in the world instead of trying to abide these worthless collectivists?

  121. Death to tyrants…datan worshippers…traitors and collaborators,…the new world order and to all that serve it…and death to americas enemies both foreign and domestic…abolish the satanic united nations and nato…INFOWARS DOT COM

  122. Until it is too expensive for the PEOPLE, not the elites. The personal behavior of 1% of the U. S. population results in their CO2 footprint being 50 TIMES that of the other 99%. Not surprising to anyone. What surprises people is when they realize this means this small group is responsible for more than 33% of ALL U. S. CO2 emissions and were they to only emit 25 TIMES the average of the other 99%, OVERALL U. S. CO2 emissions would immediately (not over decades) decline 17%. Maybe the UN can explain why all the plans being implemented and proposed will allow this small group to continue their behavior unabated while financially hammering the lower income and middle classes, just for being alive. PLEASE hurry with your explanation for it is an emergency we are told. OR just admit it is a giant scam.

  123. That’s already happening in the US. Notice how beef has skyrocketed the last several years, despite a low inflation environment. The democrats want to rule every aspect of your life, what your kids eat for lunch, you want to go to school–it’s too expensive so you need a loan through the government, you want a doctor–it’s too expensive so you need to get one through the government. People like Bloomberg even want to control the size of the soft drink you buy. Wake up people, the self-proclaimed genius globalists despise freedom and want to lord over the people they consider mere sacks of skin they must control while they remain positioned first at the trough.

    1. Actually, the price of beef rose over the last few years because of an extensive drought over the Midwest and southwest reduced available hay for cattle consumption. The result was that ranchers sold off or slaughtered significant numbers of their herds, resulting in reduced availability of cattle in later years. Supply was low, demand remained the same, or rose. The laws of supply and demand: price went up.

    2. Using beef prices as an excuse to rant at Democrats is simply asinine, since Congress and the majority of state governments have been controlled by Republicans in recent.

    3. Didn’t any of these fools learn anything from Hitler,Stalin,Mussolini,etc??? Do they not see that trying to control every aspect of peoples’ lives doesn’t work?? Such fools that haven’t learned from past events…….

  124. Sort of like the Stamp Tax placed on the Colonies by King George III? We all know where THAT went…

    1. Yeah, unfornately the youth of today are being indoctrinated into the socialist fold. They think by giving up only certain freedoms it makes us a better people! Some are just so oblivious they don’t even care about any of it. Our republic is really in a scary state right now.

  125. The UN has no taxing authority over the US; we are a sovereign nation governed by our Constitution, which states only that our government may tax its citizens. It has no mention of any taxes imposed by an unelected international group led by thugs and dictators. So thanks for the “suggestion”, but Americans will do as we please and the UN can go to hell.

    1. that idiot Kerry already signed a number of “treaties” with teh UN, supposedly in our name!

      1. They have no effect without the ratification by the Senate. These things, like the Paris Treaty, are for show only. They know full well that their signature is not binding. It does allow them to hammer the Republicans in the Senate because they “they didn’t get on board.”

        The rest of the nations that count have not ratified the Paris Treaty and have no intention of doing so. A meat tax will get no further than some bureaucrat’s dark fantasy.

    2. the UN is predominantly financed and led BY the ussa stazi.used to control other nations
      the danes are known to be gungho and susceptible to anything that says its new hitech or planet saving
      dunno? must be a genetic issue:-) or too many PC socialtypes in their education depts?
      as to the claims re the volume of ater per kilo of meat
      utter bullshit..
      unless you count the insane american promulgated CAFO setups that are using grains predominantly
      range fed animals drink a few gallons a day but their food is wet or dry as the seasons rain supplies, if theyre in a good are they may manage green or semi moist feed for 6mths or more and then its dry grass /forage.

      the food industry webs I subscribe to ARE ramping up the push to have us eating bugs in flour as hidden ingredient and as main meal contents

    3. Problem is administrations on both sides of the political scene do deals with the UN & you never know about it.

      A favourite agenda of the UN is immigration & if you can’t see what both The GOP & democrats have done, & refused to stop on this subject you’re truly blind or stupid or both.

      Only trump Ellen stop the insanity!

      1. The progressive idiots on both sides of the Atlantic have this open-border weed-driven fantasy they think will make us all one lovely human family.

        Everybody else in the U.N. sees this as an opportunity to cash in on the wealth of the Western culture. We are currently lead by fools and I think Western culture will disappear because we tolerate them.

  126. Is meat served in the executive dining rooms of the UN? In the employee cafeteria? If so, why?
    “We know what’s best for the rest of you” will destroy Democracies around the world.

  127. EU IS DONE
    Going to order biggest steak on menu at steakhouse tonight after filling up my gas guzzing mustang
    PUT A FORK IN THEM

  128. Anyone that be leaves this BS or anything the united nation puts out is an IDIOT and needs there head examined.
    Here’s an idea you people that believe this crap just terminate yourselves. Problem solved.

    1. Progressives are certifiably insane. A major study done by some of their own says so after they were forced to correct the data entry. Originally, the results, using incorrectly entered data, showed you had to be insane to think like a conservative.

      Try to find that correction on the study in MSM headlines. LOL

  129. Message to Aliens:
    Come and get me. I am ready to leave this planet…………
    Hurry……………..

    1. I agree since they are controlled by the Arabs / Muslims…….they are an expense that we need to rid ourselves of immediately. We should leave the UN and kick them out of the U.S. ….. force them to find a new headquarters……….they help NO ONE.

  130. The UN should stay out of Commerce
    Trying to tip the scales for global imbalance.
    The New World order is rising.

  131. These people make life in China & Russia seem not so bad. What a bunch of psychotic control freaks.

  132. Don ‘t even worry about all the unintended consequences from your “feel-good” actions. Quit trying to control everyone, based on your beliefs! You are not smarter than everyone else!

  133. Don ‘t even worry about all the unintended consequences from your “feel-good” actions. Quit trying to control everyone, based on your beliefs! You are not smarter than everyone else!

  134. The UN needs to be taken out of the US and never let it back. This is snake oil at its worst.

  135. Professor smarty pants is a buffoon, these educated fools need to shut the front door..

  136. How about the USA stop paying its UN dues? And while we’re at it … let them find a NEW home, we need the space at 46th St & 1st Ave NYC for something more productive.

    1. and you have the roths n rockers and soros and brezinski and a few more whos names escape me just now to thank
      the mongrel who was a mate of nixon..control food and you control the people..
      pretty easy to see why n how theyre after total control really

  137. I think you should tax UN diplomats whenever they open their mouth. This would keep them from saying stupid things and most definately decrease global warming even though their is none!

  138. In other words they already tax us to keep the cost down.So they now want to tax us to drive the price up.
    It’s really getting out of hand.

  139. I suppose that killing those millions of buffalo that roamed our west was a good thing and helped to eliminate greenhouse gasses.
    Were greenhouse gasses a problem back then.
    A recent report said our corn crop, which is used to produce “red meat”‘, produces more oxygen and removes more carbon dioxide than the amazon rain forest.
    Perhaps we should cut down the rain forest and plant corn.

    1. I too was wondering what they plan on doing with all the cattle…let them become extinct? We have insane people in government and they should be in padded cells.

      1. What do they plan on doing with all the cattle..?

        Eat them, and don’t replenish the herds- which are born and raised for one purpose: being eaten.

        1. worse… what do they plan in doing with all the bodies of dead people, who starve to death under this plan?

          1. Billions of dead people is their plan. They think they could allow nature to take its course with the bodies.

      1. This man is a fool. Why tax meat? Doesn’t he already know that the same people are taxing the human race out of existence? This would simply amount to a duplicated effort!

        1. Look at the physical condition of most vegans and you will see the answer. Arms and legs like sticks, very little upper body strength, etc. Just the shape that they want the subjugated population to be in. That way they are unable to put up any resistance and/or fight.

          1. … and the mental condition of most vegans I know: cranky, crabby, mean spirited people too boot. And SUGAR addicts every one I ever met!

    2. Harold, the bison didn’t fart. That’s why they have that big hump on the back of their neck–it holds all the gas!

    3. Re: Corn. I recently read where corn takes so much water that they want to limit how much is grown.
      It seems that Homo Sapiens are our own worse enemy – we still need to eat.

      Perhaps if we all ate the Chinese chemical cabbage then the environmentalists would be happy – when we all die of starvation with a cell-phone in our hands.

      Then the Earth can return to what it was before ‘evil’ humans stood upright and decided to eat apples. Twits…..

      1. Daniel Joseph,
        What they’re not telling you is Monsanto Brand Corn doesn’t need water to grow. It hasn’t rained where I live in over two weeks. It is a very dry summer, yet the corn is flourishing, everywhere, with no rain.
        Monsanto Brand Corn also produces it’s own pesticides…that is why everyone has wasps nests everywhere.

        1. Yep and according to some researchers (not in Monsantos payroll) that micro DNA copies these pesticides and makes YOUR DNA produce pesticides inside your bowl! After you consume these Franken (GMO) foods. Rock on the revolution.

      1. probably toxic!

        I remember as a girl… when our gramma went to Hawaii we were obsessed with all things Hawaiian. My brothers adn I dug up our mother’s prized (and expensive) iris and pounded the roots with rocks to make “poi”. Fortunately for us the stuff smelled so bad we wouldn’t even try it, a good thing for us as we found out later iris roots are poisonous.

    4. Then it follows that the USA should receive retroactive carbon credits for removing the buffalo in the past and those credits should be applicable today. Personally I doubt the validity of any claims made by someone who cloisters himself in academia and I would put more value in comments from people who reside and function in the real world.

    5. How bout we eliminate all the people who believe in this crap. that would probably give us a least another 1,000 yr’s to create a replacement.

    6. These unelected progressive know-it-all bullies will make sure their incomes allow them to eat meat. Only the poor and middle class will have to do without.

    7. if your corn is GMO then its subsidised to hell then they make ethanol HFCS and the toxic remainder then is fed to the poor caged animals
      so they profit FOUR TIMES over on the one crop.

  140. People like him should be banished to a desert island never to be seen again. Freakin golabl elitist scum.

    1. There are more people than cows on the earth. Stands to reason they fart as often! They should be taxed, too!

  141. Heavily moderated by folks that have an agenda, they dont like folks that support opposing views.
    In the case of progressive policies this makes no sense, lets heavily tax the diesel trucks that deliver food to raise the rice of everything; no better just raise the taxes on progressives by 500% and let them pay the money they wan tot put onto th erest of us. No wonder we’re losing to the world-> progressives want to regulate our economy into the ground.

    1. “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”
      ― William F. Buckley Jr.

      1. I love my beef but I need to admit we are adding way the hell too many people to this planet.

        At USDOT we had vegetarian Indian cuisine, fitting because when you have 1.5 billion peeps cows might compete for grain or for grazeland that could grow grain.

        And when oil first gets very expensive and then when there simply isn’t enough to go around we can forget petro agriculture. Dieoff.org says we fed 100 million before petro agriculture so we would lose 200 million sans the cheap oil.

        Soon we will have a choice feed cows or feed people. The losers probably won’t be Americans but all the same they will be on our conscience.

    1. THAT IS THEIR AGENDA, KILL US AND CREATE THEIR PARADISE AS WE ARE ONLY GOOD FOR BEING THEIR SLAVES OR — USELESS EATERS
      HOW ABOUT THIS, SEE A UN VEHICLE OR BLUE HELMET…SHOOT
      AS FAR AS THE UN OVERPAID SCUM IN NY, CUT OFF THEIR FUNDS

    2. You got that right!!!! The New World Order has been created to sustain a small percentage of the worlds current population.

      Look at Venezuela. 100’s of thousands starving to death and dying of illnesses we go and get a prescription for. Greece is close behind them.

      Possible this is how to get rid of millions of unwanted humans?!!

      1. in the fields (leased) on the farm I live which for years have grown probably GMO corn and soybeans… this year, all I see growing is datura… a highly toxic (potentially lethal) hallucinogenic weed. Pretty scary!

  142. More fear mongering by people feeding their fairy tales and fetishes. Another attempt at a money grab by those believing themselves to be superior. Such fools.

  143. LMAO!! The only text that should be imposed on anybody is a tax on the specific individuals who are still too stupid to realize there is no such thing as global warming let alone for the reasons these same idiots dream up.

  144. Sounds like a fine idea… It’s not about them telling us what to do… It’s about being humane to other creatures

    1. I for one am humane to other creatures. I make sure to only take a well placed shot, I butcher them myself, and I always serve them with potatoes and gravy!! Yummm!!

    2. That is not what they are saying you misonthropic PETA loon. It is about this phony climate change argument which is just a massive redistribution of wealth scheme.

    3. I’m okay with cannibalism…I’ll just start eating leftist loons when the beef runs out or is too expensive.

      Karen…would you like to join me for dinner?

    4. You and I both have K9 teeth… They are for eating meat. Don’t get brainwashed by the globalist’s army called the UN.

  145. Professor Maarten Hajer of Utrecht University in the Netherlands is now officially an asshole. How does he expect the already starving of the world to eat? Every water buffalo that is taken for food in South East Asia or Africa should somehow be taxed? Every chicken someone raises in their yard should be taxed?

    What a seriously major dumb ass he is.

  146. Let’s get the US out of the UN. We have been paying for the UN almost exclusively since its inception. It is nothing more than an extension of the US welfare system.

    1. Thank you Roger. We should get rid of our ambassador and throw the UN out of NY. Use it as a homeless shelter and use the money saved to build the wall.

    2. Yeah, we pay for it. The U.N . then creates regulation that we abide by. Smh. It’s like we pay to lose our freedom and sovereignty to some unelected fools that think like this idiot from Utrecht.

  147. Okay, so this so called intelligent professor says red meat is a danger to the climate. Does this so called smart person know that 1000 years ago there were more animals on the planet than today and our own records say it was cooler then than now. Also should be noted that this giant fireball in the sky we call the sun goes through times and periods where it emits more light, heat and radiation . I also want to claim that idiots like him and the U.N are to cause for global warming, after all, if a cow fart makes it hotter all the hot shit coming out of their mouths is really adding to the heating effect. Stick to teaching things that do not involve you giving your opinion dumb ass.

    1. Never let facts get in the way of elitists making the peasants suffer and starve so they can live like kings and queens.

  148. It’s time to cut off the UN from having access to our nation. The Trump organization can remake the UN building into an fabulous hotel. It is also time to stop sending our food stuffs to the UN controlled countries.

    1. Considering the scum that has been in the building, it would be best to tear it diwn and sanitize the site so something worthwhile can go there. And don’t forget to cancel the diplomatic visas for the foreign criminals that luked there!

    2. Only Cuba and North Korea are not part of the UN’s global banking system (The world bank, Rothschild). Obama has been chosen to take care of this situation. Hence the niceties to Cuba and the war on N. Korea!!!

      I would love to see Trump get in and make something happen to benefit the US and get out of the UN’s New World Order push!!

  149. The only threat to mankind are these people that think they can control everything from a central government. Between the communist in the west, the oligarchs in the east and the fascist across the Middle East, there is only poverty, depravity and war in the future. No matter who wins this world war you can be sure it will be an evil empire and its power will global and absloute. The next hundred years will be very bad,Mao, Stalin, and Hitler kinda bad.

    1. Better yet. ELECT TRUMP and have TRUMP DUMP the UN IN THE US! Just chop it off along the border and let it float over to Africa and let them be the chief funder. We get nothing for our HUUUUUUUGE Donation to the U.N. The people that we help with our money aren’t worth it. They all turn around and hurt us and when we have a disaster, there are never any checks from the other nations to help us out like we help them. SCREW THE UN !

  150. “Tax it earlier in the process…”
    Doesn’t this strategy confirm the absurdity that leftists’ calls for higher corporate taxes don’t lead to higher consumer costs? Industry and corporations don’t pay taxes, the end-user customer pays ALL taxes.

  151. This is what happens when trendy, scientifically illiterate, bureaucrats set public policy.

    1. Have you ever discussed bread and butter economic issues with newly minted law school graduates? Wow…

  152. Tax stupidity until no one wants to act, be, or say stupid things. The Politicians of the world would be a cash cow, and eventually the world would be a better place.

    1. If Clinton is selected, you can kiss the 2nd amendment goodbye. Can you imagine what the Supreme is going to look like with her in the oval Office.

    1. If you want to know where the waist of water is. Here is some facts everyone should be aware of. There are 15,500 Golf coarses in the U.S. It takes 312,000 gal. of water to irrigate each one daily. A 28′ Dia. swimming pool 52″ deep takes 20 thousand Gal. of water to fill it.

    2. Yes, but my wife and I are concerned about the globalists dumping the Dollar in response. That would be painful especially for those invested in equities. I haven’t been in the market for years and that’s part of the reason why.

      1. err you ARE aware the gold backed n traded new Yuan renmimbi is NOT able to swap for us$ ?
        and the brics and friends are moving quickly to NONusd trade deals?
        hell thats why Gaddafi got murdered he was going to gold for oil, and your banksters n gov a##holes got upset n arranged his death /EU was started and pushed BY ussa and ad nauseum so many other coups revolutions etc.
        buy gold n silver REAL not paper get your savings in to things of value and out of banks before the bail IN and use your money n pension to do it with.

  153. I see, if you are a vegan you are ok, but if you are a true omnivore then you are killing the planet and should pay the UN (money grabbers) so they can distribute the wealth to nations that have ZERO environmental regulations. Would the meat from a goat farm in Tanzania be taxed at the same rate as a goat farm in Germany? There is nothing in this proposal that will do anything for the climate, just take more money from people that work to give to those that free-load.

  154. The UN can go straight to hell. I won’t pay a single dime of tax to those worthless bastards.

    1. Buy staples from the Amish if you can. It’s better anyway.

      All this talk about meat is making me hungry.

  155. Hey. Nothing is too extreme to save the environment and stave off global warming. Right??
    How about we tax self-important, pious bullshit until these clowns have get a real job

  156. Old Hajer lets the reason for the global warming hoax out of the bag. Taxes, Taxes, Taxes!!!!!
    The sad thing is there are educated people that are stupid enough to fall for this as fact, when in actuality man made global warming is based on junk science by leftist scientist.

  157. Deliver chainsaws to UN, let them reduce each other to bloody meat, tax that carnage of global fascists for the pleasure of their gaseous emissions as they decay never to return except in worm eaten walking dead movies.

  158. If the UN gets its way, expect a lot more people to get involved in ranching, purchasing one steer which they they have butchered and into the freezer(s) it goes without any taxes. The ranchers will then be selling single steers to individuals, bypassing the wholesale and retail markets.

    This is always what happens when government gets too greedy (in this case in the name of saving us using the rigged data of supposed human caused global warming – something we’ll want when the next Mauder Minimum arrives in 2030) and intervenes in the markets so much. A black market arises due to lack of free markets.

  159. Time now to end the UN. It is operating on false premises that people are causing an increase of world temperature and that what people eat is within their charter all of which is untrue aimed at illicit purposes. It is proving that world leaders are easily duped or inherently look for ways to control people. A small minority trying to control the masses. Just look at what has happened to corn which is used to generate alcohol that is mixed with gas to supposedly reduce the oco output but decreases the mpg making the process totally useless and more expensive. But with enough people paid off, it is impossible to get rid it from our world. Beware UN studies for they are tainted by governing committees and politics.

  160. The United Nations has been a joke from day one.
    It has done NOTHING of value for the human race,
    that couldn’t have been done FAR, FAR better by
    other, non-socialist entities.

    DEATH TO THE UNITED NATIONS

    1. MAKE THEM PAY ALL THEIR FINES and MONEY DUE TO LANDLORDS THEY SKIP OUT ON BEFORE KILLING IT OFF>

  161. Governments have learned long ago that if you want to deter behavior or eliminate certain products just tax them out of existence.

    If only we could Tax Stupidity all of of problems would be solved.

  162. Do these people really try to present themselves as some kinds of scientists?

    During WWII, English bureaucrats had farmers get rid of much of their livestock, and pressured them to grow wheat on wet, unsuitable land. Perhaps the scientists quoted in the above article are descended from those idiots?

    Pastoral production systems (where most of red meat production occurs) is much kinder to the environment than the growing of soy, fruits and veg., etc.

    The argument about water consumption is laughable. Do these folks think the water disappears when the animal drinks it?

    In fact, I suspect that the above nonsense is being pushed by vegan/animal rights groups.

    1. Yeah, it sounds like PETA crap. We live in the SF Bay Area and if you read or hear something that sounds like it was cooked up in a college dorm room it probably was. That’s where most of this sort of thing comes from. The entire DNC platform is that way. I’ve been somehow involved with or even watching national campaigns for about forty years and everything the Democrats do is that way. They are nothing but overgrown children – every single time, without fail and without exception. My buddy who does research at Berkeley (a very moderate liberal Canadian national) says these cats are wired wrong. They’re actually sick…and that’s coming from a lib!

  163. 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

    1 Timothy 4:1-3

  164. “Hajer and other members of the IRP assert that livestock creates 14.5 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.”
    we must fight these people to their death…they are not of sound mind and cannot be allowed to govern the rest of us.

    1. These ” Man Caused Climate Change ” Bozos
      are as dishonest as the NYT.
      THE NUMBER 1 GREENHO– USE GAS IS WATER VAPOR. THE BOZOS DON’T COUNT IT BECA– USE IT’S NOT CA– USED
      BY MAN. THESE BOZOS DON’T MENTION
      THE 800,00O tons per day the Ocean’s BELCH EACH DAY. OR THAT THE PINOTUBO ERUPTION INJECTED MORE
      CFC’S AND CO2 INTO THE STRATUS SPHERE THAN MAN, THE DINOSAUR, COWS IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY.

    2. Just to show you what complete liars Hajer and his buddies are it turns out that 95% of the greenhouse gas emissions actually come from water vapor. That leaves only 5% for CO2. So the claim that 14.5% comes from cows would mean that cows contribute 13.8% of the water vapor in the earth’s atmosphere. If they mean that cows contribute 14.5% of the CO2, then that is 0.7% of total global warming. Let’s get some giant plastic covers for the entire earth’s oceans and we can really do something to stop this imaginary problem

  165. You stupid fucks should be sent to a deserted island and left to die you have no authority in America go eat weeds

  166. This is typical bureaucratic think, sneak up on the people so they won’t notice that we are directing their live. Europeans are beyond ever understanding freedom.

    1. It’s a good point. Everything is a shade of gray, a head game to these people. Why? They can’t face you directly…and why? They’re weak. It’s ALWAYS been that way.

      Easy fix here. When these worms start playing their little games and sitting in circles around tables telling the rest of us how to live, you take the physical battle directly to them. If three or four rednecks who’ve had too much beer lifting them out of their chairs, beating the hell out of them and leaving them in a dark alley will do the trick, I’m all for it. It’s cheaper that way. Yes, yes…they’ll start taunting and calling names (racist, sexist, ignorant…what have you) and that simply means you push the throttles forward instead of pulling back. Swing harder. Swing until they go down and DO NOT GET UP and then UNTIL THEY DON’T COME BACK with more troops. It won’t be easy but wow…will it ever be worth it.

  167. Sure, then only Mr. Premack and his elitist friend will be able to eat meat, for the rest of us serfs, grass.

  168. More importantly, who will be sent to COLLECT those taxes? I sure hope blue-helmeted UN boys from Norway or Sweden show up at my door, they will get an unexpected surprise.

  169. It is well passed time for the UN to be dissolved. Even Henry Kissinger, who helped form the UN has called for the UN to be dismantled. Kissinger acknowledged that the need for the UN has passed.

  170. I will bet they served Filet Mignon, Rib Eyes and Porterhouse cuts at their meetings where they discussed OUR future. Hold the AU JUS please…I’m saving the planet.

  171. Just who appointed these people? The population of the world should lock all of them up in the Bastille and shove a bowl of what ever in to their cell once a day. Either that or put them in an insane assylum and never let them out

    1. That reminds me of the scene in Papillion where Steve McQueen ends up on his belly handcuffed behind his back with his face in a bowl of gruel.

    2. .. GREAT IDEA!

      \why not a bowl of mealy worms… something they are trying to pass off as food for the future!

    1. I’m no liberal but eating shellfish in large quantities all the time is known to be bad for folks with high cholesterol. Then again, maybe these guys should eat more of it. Darwin.

  172. This has to be a joke. How did we ever make it hundreds of years without the climate change tards wanting to tax our every move? When will people wake up to this thievery and stand up for common sense? I propose we tax all people who spew this climate change garbage from their disgusting suck-holes. If they are so adamant about it, then they should pay the taxes to change it. Personally, I think similar to George Carlin… if the Earth wanted, it would shake us off like a bad case of flees. Climate change is a joke and a scam to convince people to pay carbon taxes to the big elite bankers. It has nothing to do with saving the planet as they claim.

    1. not paid to bankers but to all knowing, all seeing bureaucrats who are the morally superior race

  173. The UN is a NAZI organization that takes it upon itself to make up any scam it wishes to control the world. Climate Change is a scam to bring in billions of taxes for the elites. It’s a joke and I would love to see the UN destroyed.

  174. How about we impose a tax on the UN every time the say something stupid…we could pay off our entire deficit in a matter of months.

  175. The headline should read “Tax meat until only the elite can afford it”. Making meat too costly only affects those who are not super rich. It will also gut millions of jobs.

  176. What will happen to all the cows not being eaten? If they are allowed to live and breed, the problem (so-called) would get worse. If they are slaughtered to extinction, that would be a crime against nature (and meat-eaters).

  177. It’s a shame we can’t just tax all that stupidity floating around at the UN…..if we did, we could pretty much finance all global debt! The spirit of Woodrow Wilson must be resting a little easier….each time the UN tosses out these little nuggets of wisdom, it makes the League of Nations look better and better!!

    1. We should reduce our annual UN “contributions” by 80%, move the UN out of the USA (haiti maybe?), and stay a member so we can keep our eye on them and scuttle some of their idiocy.

  178. Yeah, just another bunch of altruists trying to tax people which will not end up supporting the real goals they are said to be in favor. Ultimately, lining up people’s pockets.
    Besides, how can Man affect the weather, when we can’t even predict weather with 100% accuracy a few days ahead? We are so arrogant to think so. This earth is in constant flux due to Mother Nature. Are things going on with the climate? Sure! It’s been a constant variable that’s been around before us pointy-headed intellectuals ever roamed the planet, making up such nonsense.

  179. Interesting solution to a meet the greed of government for increased tax revenue – tax meat until only the rich can afford to eat it under the guise of global warming. If ever one wondered what the global warming scare is all about , it become abundantly clear when one sees the recommended solutions. They all result in higher taxes and more revenue for governments.

    Animals, including humans, are only net modest emitters of CO2. While we breath out CO2, this is absorbed by plants for photosynthesis and when animals eat plants, we consume the CO2. Animals bodies also retain some portion of CO2 to grow body mass. When humans eat livestock, we absorb the retained CO2 of those animals as well.

    If livestock is the focus today for CO2 emissions, when will government begin taxing people just for breathing?

  180. Just another govt tax scam, by politicians. What should we expect?
    Stop paying them.
    Politicians are lying about taxes. Tax law, which include regulations, is codified and easy as 1,2.

    1.
    –Exempt Income, 26 CFR 1.861-8T(d)(2)(ii)
    “exempt income means any income that is … exempt, excluded, or eliminated for federal income tax purposes.”

    2.
    –Income Not Exempt, 26 CFR 1.861-8T(d)(2)(iii)
    “Income that is not considered tax exempt. The following items are not considered to be exempt, eliminated, or excluded income

    (A) In the case of a foreign taxpayer … gross income (whether domestic or foreign source)
    (B) gross income of a DISC or a FSC; [domestic international sales corp, foreign sales corp]
    (C) gross income of a possessions corporation
    (D) Foreign earned income as defined in section 911”

    Do you make Foreign earned income? No? According to code (law), YOU DON’T OWE any income tax. As usual, politicians are lying, and stealing money from citizens under color of law. Politicians are parasites.

    “The Service is bound by the regulations.”
    –Internal Revenue Manual, 4.10.7.2.3.4
    So, how come IRS ignores tax regulations?

    SOURCE- ecfr DOT gov

  181. All extra-national or supra-national bodies whose interests are not at a national level are working to take over all rich countries. They aren’t doing it with armies; they are doing it with fear and the old communist “for the common good of mankind.”

    The UN in particular is even more corrupt than the American Federal government and that is saying a LOT. The UN is also demonstrably the most unaccountable, most incompetent bureaucracy in the world. But, since incompetence and bureaucracy are the same thing, I repeat myself.

    Global weather patterns, whether they be cooling, heating, more storms, less water here or there on the planet are the perfect fear producing subject for a gullible public and the best, long term issue for politicians who create “fact” simply by repeating the false statements over and over again.

  182. Fair play, demand higher taxes for foods that use higher water/fertilizer consumption. Like Avocado’s, nuts, most lettuce etc…. That would do the same thing for most vegetables that they’re trying to do for meat. Then listen to them howl.
    But once again, they prove that the tax system isn’t for revenue, but a tool to be used to control the population.

    1. Fuk the UN ,Obama and any other establishment political figure that is for global gov.!!!!!!!

  183. We’re damn close to meat being too expensive for the average Americans – NOT on Food Stamps to afford “meat” even the price of hamburg is thru the roof. There is NOTHING better under Obama’s presidency……

  184. Really? They’re doubling down on that climate change fraud?

    Tell you what, lefties. You believe in this silliness. You pay a tax on meat. Go ahead.

  185. Immediately cut off all meat from being served at any UN function. Globalist hypocrite scum.

  186. Yeah right I’ll eat the UN members dog for some red meat. These folks are complete morons. Get a life and eat a steak.

  187. Please note, animals (meat) eat feed grains which when growing extract carbon from the atmosphere. This carbon eventually makes its way back into the atmosphere creating a temporare reduction in carbon but eventually no net gain. If animals were not grown their feed would not be grown no carbon withdrawal and no carbon addition. Ceasing meat production results in no carbon reduction and a temporary decrease. A simple example of conservation of mass. Cutting meat production to reduce carbon in the atmosphere is a stupid idea.

  188. What a huge lie! Nobody believes in climate change and no one will pay your tax meat. Just a way to starve the public and cause a food shortage.. First the cows than the humans. No evidence at all. Hope they lock you climate liars up!! Nobody likes or listens to the UN! Except the CIC and Bill the science liar.

  189. Those knuckleheads at the UN have outlived their usefulness. When they get too big for their britches and start telling the folks in sovereign countries what they can do and how to live their daily lives then they need to just go away. It’s for reasons like those that the Brits voted to leave the EU. They didn’t care for bureaucrats in Brussels telling them what they could do in their own country. I feel much the same way about the bureaucrats in Washington DC trying to tell me what I can do with land that I own in Idaho. Eff ’em.

  190. Since the world began, for millions of years… we did not see any degradation other than the odd volcano, or meteorite.

    However since man has come on the scene (Not Cows), we’ve seen desert after desert formed by (Not Cows) MAN Mono-cropping AGRICULTURE. (Not Cows)
    Actually, Cows (and most ruminants) are in perfect harmony with the grasslands they inhabit. Cows are good for grasslands, and grasslands are a MAJOR sink for?
    You guessed it,
    Carbon!
    It’s stored way down where fire (think forests of WOOD) can not reach in the bacteria networks that inhabit the root zone of the grasses.
    So… whats good for the grasslands (Cows) is GOOD for the earth.
    Where is the REAL problem then?
    Mono-cropping, to feed animals penned into concentrated conditions, in other words…
    PEOPLE, in cities (by the millions)…
    DEMANDING more processed Grains, flours, seeds & beans.
    So…
    all you “environmental” types out there. ESPECIALLY the “vegans” who think they are the solution to all the Earth’s problems…
    NO, you are the real source of the problems since WAY before the industrial revolution (and always have been)
    … along with all the agribusiness that supports you.
    ( Give us all a break, stop supporting mono-cropping )
    Eat grass fed, grass finished BEEF, and pasture raised meats of all kinds. (Especially home made BACON! : -)
    STOP eating anything with processed Grains, seeds & beans.
    You will get healthy, the environment will breath a sigh of relief, and…
    COWS really will SAVE THE PLANET!!!

  191. The Useless Nations, corrupt as it is, can go screw themselves! Just a bunch of greedy, thieving bastards!

  192. You’re, they’re just insane. Sounds like something Obama and Hillary would go for. New taxes to be spent on new NY townhouse, apartments whatever these slugs live in.

  193. So when enough people starve to death or die from protein deficiencies, will survivors be able to eat meat again?

    1. THEY will always be able to eat meat. It’s the worthless rabble like you and me who will be prohibited from eating it.

  194. Let’s enjoy life and live it to the fullest. In the end we all die physically. The UN is a warped organization that needs to be removed from all decisions that effect the free world.

  195. it is time to leave the un,an dump all these goons like kissenger who are promoting the new world order.

    1. It’s the only thing leftists know how to do; witness Odumbass and the other democRats.

  196. The best way to get rid of global warming is to destroy the CO2 emitting idiots who believe in climate change.

  197. This is why we should fight tpp. it will be same other people will tell you how to live an eat what you can buy an what you can sell. even if you don’t know them or vote for them. the UN should keep there opinion out of our life. get rid of them i say!!!!!! what good are???? they only start wars an take our money an tell us what to do just like global warming just to get carbon tax for them help spray us with the chemtrails to kill us or dumb us down to make easier to control or maybe just to tax us to death before the new world order finish there push

  198. Cut the funding of the UN and make them learn how to teach about self reliance and democracy…they sound like the Ero at Brussels……

  199. Ignore Euro Peon parasites; they’ll be overrun by the Moslem deathcult soon anyway, because they’re too weak and blind to defend themselves.

  200. Really what they are saying is “Tax meat so that only we princes and bloated aristocratic grifters at the UN can afford it. “

  201. Tax immigrants and their children.

    Double tax illegal (felon) immigrants. Better DEPORT them.

    Tax any politician who owns more than 1 home or more than 1 automobile. His wife can drive him to the Senate building.

    Require ALL Politicians to reside, while in session, within walking distance of the Government building(s). Require they ride a bike to work. East of D.C. there are thousands of affordable apartments for the Senators.

    I’ll give up MY MEAT when you pry the cold dead sirloin off my fork……………………………………

  202. And who will receive all this tax money??? If they send it to me then heck yeah – tax away. If they are intent on taking US money and giving it to third world despots well – that just ain’t gonna happen. They are always cooking up ways to get our money.

  203. The next revolution is right around the corner. These so called academic, bed wetters need to be put of business.

  204. Then you’ll see a lot of folks raising, butchering, and storing their own meat … like people did prior to the time of grocery stores having on-site coolers and freezers.

  205. This is obsurd. Its proven that the sun goes through heating and cooling cycles and drives our climate thus heats and cools the Earth. Global Warming is NOTcaused from COWS FARTING!! Can you say Cowgate?? In fact right now our sun is in a cooling phase and the Earths temps is dropping. Globalists ignore the facts and love the tax.

  206. I keep asking, and nobody seems to know the answer, but WHY is the UN still headquartered on US shores and taking US money? These people are parasites, plain and simple.

  207. Demolish the un building in nyc deport the delegates and end funding for the criminally corrupt organization that the in has become.

  208. I hope President Trump asks the UN to leave US soil, stops funding them and develops the land into something useful.

  209. Get the frigging Useless Nations out of my kitchen! While we are at it, get them out of our country too!

  210. Remember a few years ago the story about how the UN was trying to promote people to eat insects saying they were a good source of protein? Now they are saying the want to make meat so expensive people will not be able to afford it. These are just a couple of dots that all connect. The UN is a far left radical gang of liberal kooks that think they can socially engineer society to utopia. These are dangerously insane people that have way too much power.

  211. How about stopping a;ll US subsidies to the UN until it starts talking with some sense! They serve no good purpose anymore. they are so far left they make obama look like a choir boy in a catholic church!

  212. Young minded liberals…see soon only the rich will be able to afford meat. Next will be A/C and then cars and then large homes or apartments. This is your future. Enjoy it. I’m an older Republican and I am getting tired of trying to fight for your future. You think you are smarter and that the government is your friend, well then enjoy your future. I’m tuning out.

  213. Meanwhile meat production and export is trending up. There is no intention of reducing meat production and consumption globally. Rather, it is to shift to more profitable markets. All about profit, not about the environment. During the cold war, the West criticized the Soviet Union because of appalling living conditions – small apartments, little resources, people eating bread, potatoes, and cabbage soup. Now the West is driving everyone to the same conditions under the guise of sustainability. You will still have the same cost of living but get a box to live in and veggie burgers. So much for the American dream.

  214. Grass fed beef causes no greenhouse gases. The grass a cow eats contains carbon that just came out of the atmosphere that year.

  215. …and so the insanity continues and will continue until we smash the state as it now stands.
    You want to get rid of cows? Start with that cow streisand bellowing “Good times are back” since that pig clinton won the nomination of the demented party.

    The left are complete and utter morons.

  216. No, tax breeding instead until it’s too expensive to make and rear children. That would guarantee an end to global warming, species extinction and warfare.

  217. When I watch the film Soylent Green I think of the world now with leftist elites proposing taking away our freedoms such as driving a car alone, owning a firearm, taking an actual bath in a bathtub, and eating meat. Wake up America.

  218. This professor is utter nonsense. Very shameful of this guy 🙁
    He’s more worried about taxing red meat than making actual lives better. Instead of trying resolving real issues, we have have global warming. Save the earth not people mentality…..
    Lets see what has scum heads in the UN done lately to make lives better? Ummm, practically nothing. Poverty, still around; regional, international, religious conflicts and wars, still around; misery, still around; inequality, still around. You get the picture.
    Hold on one second, UN did make lives a hell though. No border policy, free trade, world bank, destruction of countries, cultures, traditions, and so on. Better yet, UN helped elevate Islamic terrorism, illegal immigration, and rising food prices.
    Lets just abolish UN. This institution is really, I mean really useless…

  219. Everyone notice that in the U.S. the government backs the increase in grains and vegetables in the diet while reducing fats and meats? Now we have an epidemic in overweight people eating fast foods for meals, cereals for breakfasts, colas with loads of sugar(s), processed foods with no actual natural nutritional value. Diabetic levels increasing in those that follow those guidelines. Now they want to further decline our health. Just not dying quick enough for them…

  220. -Heavy snow in New Zealand!
    http://freddofili.it/14240-abbondanti-nevicate-nuova-zelanda/
    -The Fall threatens to invade the August weather.
    The forecast estimates damages an abundant episode of snow in the Alps at altitudes that could break down below 2000 m. Fall characteristics in the summer, even for Italy South Centre, and this is defined by super computers, which require confirmation.
    http://freddofili.it/14244-lautunno-rischia-invadere-meteo-ferragosto-freddo-stagione/

  221. Real property, gross income, estate taxes, booze, tobacco, fuel, utilities, soon carbon taxes and Hillary’s “fair share surcharge”…. Why should meat be any different?

  222. The United Nations, what a joke. It is only a platform for wealth redistribution.

  223. Indeed, a major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it… gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
    – Milton Friedman

  224. Sure sure… obviously only the wealthiest among us should be allowed to eat something as wonderful as beef.

    I’m still waiting for someone to explain to me how taking more of my money will solve climate change. (or slow it, or change it one iota)

  225. Why don’t we just kill all the people that think like this globalist pig instead and reduce their carbon footprint and intake of red meat.

  226. New World Order ?? Make it New World Odor.!! These lefties, left to their own devices would destroy mankind inside of 200 years.

  227. New World Order ?? Make it New World Odor.!! These lefties, left to their own devices would destroy mankind inside of 200 years.

  228. I think we should eat all the idiots at the UN . Grind them up and use for burgers. That will surely reduce “Global Warming” I know for sure it will improve the gene pool

  229. House GOP Wants To Keep EPA From Regulating Cow Farts

    dailycallerdotcom/2016/05/24/house-gop-wants-to-keep-epa-from-regulating-cow-farts/#ixzz4GIsS1otd

    You can imagine how stupid Obama looks when the Headline reads PRESIDENT OF US REGULATES COW FARTING!

    1. The most wasteful crop in regards to water wasted versus calories provided by a food is lettuce.

  230. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C.S. Lewis

  231. Vegetarian Propaganda. Quick someone get some bacon it’s the only cure for over concerned vegetarian mothers who are in a perpetually “hungry-mad” mood.

  232. The subhuman trying to tell me how to live and what I can put into my body? FO No one me into unhealthy veganism. Abolish the UN NOW!

  233. Homosapiens in captivity exhibit far less mental faculties than free range homosapiens. For the love of hubris, let’s tax stupid.

  234. Go ahead, tax meat. It costs less to eat grass fed humans anyway. Especially those from the United Nations! Yum-yum!

  235. The lord says in the last days you will be told to ABSTAIN FROM MEAT and this will be taught by doctrine of demons

    1 Timothy 4: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

  236. That’s some dumb as shit! Hey UN you will never tax meat! The US gov as long as we elect a non liberal won’t either!!

  237. We should tax the UN out of existence! How about instead of paying the lions share of the UN’s money we do it based on the population of each nation!

    Come on everyone tell me one positive thing that the U.N. has ever done for us?

  238. Humans are omnivores. We are designed to eat both meat and plants. The UN hasn’t a clue about much of anything. We really should kick them out of the country and stop paying so much of the tab. I am sure they can illegally park and skip out on their debts just as easily in Haiti or Kuwait.

  239. A number of essential Amino Acids critical for human health and life itself can only be found in red meat. This professor and his associates that suggest higher taxation on red meat to reduce Co2 levels have their heads shoved up their own ass so far, they do not know what clean air is. Too much aroma in that location. Toxic! Only mouth work there-not brain! A higher level of stupidity has now been reached! May all sorts of earthly and unearthly calamity collect and settle on the shoulders of these stupid persons. May someone with reason find a way to remove their source of income so these infidels can more fully appreciate poverty.

  240. This man should be stripped of his position and made to live the life he wants the rest of us to live.

  241. Absurd. Ludicrous. Foolish. So cows off-gas methane. The argument I’ve heard is methane is formed by cows is” carbon neutral” Just like methane is in coal seams is supposedly “carbon neutral” and often leaches into the atmosphere. And cow’s and other ruminants (camels, deer, etc.) reproduce, so how ’bout them too. Whoops can’t tax camels and aren’t they Islamic or muslum or some such bovine blow juice. So I got it. Let’s tax wonderful WINE-O too then! According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the production of WINE accounts for over 1 Billion Gt of CO2.per/annum… and that doesn’t include beer or hard cider, (another Billion Gt or so!)

    So how do you like DEM APPLES?

    One day crossin’ – Market Street a big car knocked me down.
    I was stretched out… Tying up traffic… And crowds came from blocks around…
    While the police… searchin thru my pockets…, before they sent me to the funeral parlor,
    One of those cops touched my bottle, Jack, I jumped straight up and commenced to holler!
    Gimme that wine (Yea! Gimme that Wine)
    Gimme that wine (Yea! Gimme that Wine)
    Yea! Gimme that wine (Gimme that wine)
    I jus’ can’t get well without my Muscatel

  242. Following their logic , they should tax fish…they use more water than any creature. What about corporate thieves that think they have the right to bottle our water and sell it back to us for huge profits.

  243. This is pure propaganda. There are climates where it’s better to grow rice than to keep cows and vice versa. Sheep are ideal in upland regions at high latitudes where crops can’t be grown. Cows, pigs, chickens etc are very important in the retention of long-term fertility in fields, not to mention retaining the ability of ‘natural’ strains of crops to continue to produce high quality seeds.

    This is vegetarian/vegan totalitarianism run riot.

  244. I’m anemic. I also have resistance to iron supplements so I have to eat red meat. 100% have to or I will die. Now they want to tax it more? How’s that fair?

  245. There is ONE Carbon Tax that I am 10% in favor of – a Carbon Tax on Liberals. The Liberals are the ones that are making CO2 a pollutant. If it were not for Liberals, CO2 would be a beneficial gas that caused plants to grow.

  246. Certainly our liberal Danish government will reject this most disgusting idea of taxing meat, at least i hope so.
    If not, only the rich can afford a steak, so unfair and foolish.
    CO2 is not a problem, instead it’s a huge benefit for plants. We have 400 ppm in the atmosphere right now, when dinosaurs ruled the world it was between 1000 and 2000 ppm..!
    I look forward to the day when the CO2 tax fraud is exposed.

  247. When are we going to stop talking as if these people are presenting ideas worthy of serious consideration. They are the tools of their masters promoting genocide with a pseudo-scientific and pseudo-ethical face.

    Their ideas only go to identify themselves as part of the enemy. It is no longer to be anticipated that civil war will be avoided. A fight is coming. Unfortunately, these people obviously believe all the serious firepower is on their side; the great danger and concern is that they are right.

    People should begin to grasp that whether they will it or not they are about to participate in one of the most desperate fights in modern history.

  248. Thank goodness you better filter most of your other postings!
    This could become annoy.

    If one lives within a 10 radius of the U.N. it might be a good time to secure another area.
    Just saying, a passing thought.

  249. These jerks don’t give a damn about Global Warming, or any other things they blabber about. They only care about their power. By using academia, bureaucracies, the EU, NGOs, international courts, etc. they bypass and overcome democracy. Read John Fonte’s Sovereignty or Submission to get the whole story.

  250. I think we have found a level of government that can be abolished for the good of humanity. The UN. Much expense, waste and criminality can be eliminated.

  251. American cattle ranchers and everyone dependent on cattle farming take note: A vote for a democratic party presidential candidate is a vote for this kind of green lunacy.

  252. This is all so silly.
    Tell me whom loses ?
    You will tax the consumers so they purchase less.
    You will ‘subsidize’ the producers so they don’t lose money—with taxpayer money.
    The Taxpayer pays Twice.
    The Producer works half as much.

  253. Based on the following some blood types that people have actually require a person to have a specialized diet for optimum health. Type O people require a diet that includes meat and fats and very little if any beans or grains.
    The genocidal implications of a global meat tax should be obvious.

  254. From the heavy response here, there should be no problem of the liberals winning the White House. Then again it is coming down to the Independents in about 4 States, so who knows what will happen.
    They could win and tax hunting rifles and ammo to where you won’t even be able to hunt for meat.
