Have you noticed that a new part of the climate alarmism is a push to restrict meat consumption? There’s a reason for that.
The reason has absolutely nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with that old bit of sage advice, “Follow the money.”
A new report says that in order to save the planet, people in Western countries need to reduce their meat consumption quite drastically and switch to plant-based proteins.
Americans will need to cut their average consumption of beef by about 40% and Europeans by 22%, for the world to continue to feed the 10 billion people expected to live on this planet in 2050, according to a new report.
That means each person could have about a burger and a half each week.
This calculation comes from the World Resources Institute, a global research nonprofit that supports better use of natural resources to sustain a growing population. Its research looks at agriculture, the climate crisis, poverty and gender, among other topics.
Here’s the thing… that report was published by World Resources Institute (WRI), is an organization created to advocate for the protection of the Earth’s environment and promote sustainable living. The Chair of WRI is David Blood, who has close ties to… climate huckster, Al Gore. They started an investment firm called Generation Investment Management.
3) Now here's where we get to the good stuff. WRI's Co-Chair is David Blood. David Blood is former Goldman Sachs' Asset Management head who founded Generation Investment Management with Al Gore, yes that Al Gore.

5) All these "We need to cut beef consumption to save the planet" stories originate from the World Resources Institute whose co-chair is a partner in the firm that collaborates w/ the main investor in @BeyondMeat and his co-founder is a partner in the main investor.

Generation Investment Management is aligned with a firm called Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers which also names Al Gore as one of its partners and advisors, is the largest investor in the alternative meat company, Beyond Meat, a Los Angeles company which produces plant-based alternatives to meat. Generation Investment Management and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers have partnered to create an “international alliance to accelerate global climate solutions.”
Mr. Gore said, “This alliance brings together world-class business talent to focus on solving the climate crisis. Together, we have a working understanding of this urgent, multi-dimensional challenge and are resolved to help business and government leaders accelerate the development of sustainable solutions.”

So, to sum up, a report by WRI which is run by an Al Gore hack is advocating for a huge reduction in meat consumption — specifically beef — to fight climate change. The faster the transition, the better. Who benefits? Plant-based alternatives like Beyond Meat and their investors — ie. Kleiner Perkins and by extension Al Freaking Gore.
Blood and Gore don’t want you eating meat.
Apparently, they haven’t made enough money with climate activism and they’re looking for new ways to cash in.
Remember, Al Gore and David Blood made a fortune on selling “carbon credits” which are essentially indulgences to “offset” their high carbon use for the folks in the climate cult.
There are other reasons that the plant-based meat alternatives aren’t the miracle cure that they’ve been lauded as.
Another is the disturbing tweet posted on Twitter that shows the ingredients of two plant-based meat substitutes and a premium brand of dog food. They’re quite difficult to tell apart.
Trivia quiz: following are the ingredients of three food/feed items. Two of them are fake burgers (namely @ImpossibleFoods burger and @BeyondMeat burger, respectively) and the third is premium dog food. Can you pick the latter? pic.twitter.com/uqzWIkxpQ7

So, are you going to switch from meat to “highly processed” plant-based meat alternatives, or not?
There is already pressure on governments to impose a “meat tax” to discourage meat consumption.
Germany is considering a 19% meat tax to combat climate change.
It’s being discussed in Canada as well, though a percentage hasn’t been listed.
The push to have governments push for a reduction in meat consumption is working.
