Global warming hysteria has reached a new peak after it was revealed that the British government is considering forcing the population to give up meat and milk and adopt a vegan diet in the name of fighting climate change.
The move could spell the end of the very definition of British identity – the humble cup of tea along with the roast beef Sunday dinner – and represents the latest brazen effort to regulate and control every minute aspect of our lives under the banner of global warming.
“Secret plans to encourage the nation to give up eating meat are being examined by the Government. A leaked e-mail expresses sympathy for the environmental benefits of a mass switch to a vegan diet – a strict form of vegetarianism which bans milk, dairy products and fish.”
“The change would need to be done “gently” because of a “risk of alienating the public”, according to the document. The extreme policy is being examined on the basis it could make a major contribution to slowing climate change,” reports the London Daily Mail .
If you thought the insanity of Sheryl Crow’s solution of only using one square of toilet paper per bathroom visit was kooky, this tops it by a mile. Though after a New York Times editorial called for imposing a carbon tax on the very air we breathe , nothing from these nutcases should surprise us.
As I have outlined before , the more extreme and outlandish the proposals for fighting global warming become, the more people will wake up to the fact that this movement has little to do with saving the earth and everything to do with the state having the excuse to exact suffocating control measures upon the individual.
Should it ever come to fruition, this ridiculous proposal will completely decimate the farming community, a long-time goal of the social architects that have declared war on any kind of self-sustainance or independence from the state.
Since the dawn of time man has hunted and eaten meat but now these control freaks wish to reverse thousands of years of civilized history and topple the food chain itself by stigmatizing meat-eating as a blasphemous insult to mother earth.
The end of the humble British cup of tea?
Reader, even if you adhere to the direst proclamations of the global warming doom mongers and believe the man-made – and in this case animal-made – contribution to climate change, surely you can still see that on the face of it this proposal is completely radical, will devastate the economy and is totally unworkable?
Only the wildest crackpots of the environmentalist cult would dare even dream up such a scheme – yet the British government is seriously considering it!
More reassuringly, judging from the comments on the Mail article, the British people still retain some semblance of common sense.
“If you eat meat you will be fined and if you become a vegetarian you will be rewarded same old story.””It’s a well known fact that plant-eating animals generate more methane from their digestive processes than meat-eaters or herbivores. Surely, therefore, to minimise climate change we should be vigorously opposing vegans and vegetarians on the basis that they are contributing excessively to global warming.”
“The simple truth is that the as-yet unproven theory of global warming is allowing every crank and nutcase on the planet to jump in and try to run our lives for us and the politicians, the greatest nannies of all, are only too happy to play along.”
“Some people simply wouldn’t be able to live on a strictly vegetarian diet because of health reasons! Try eating only fruits and vegetables if you have an open ulcer wound. I just can’t stop wondering what kind of virus has taken over the minds of some British people recently? The proposals some are coming up with are good subjects for horror movies!”
“Just imagine what the history syllabus of future generations might include if ever any of these ideas were documented as a way of preventing the current climate change – which could be a natural event anyway and nothing at all to do with CO2 emissions. Future generations will think we were all highly ignorant lunatics accepting a dictatorship Government!”
