Study Calls For Radical Change in Diet

The self-righteously repressive liberal ruling class wants to micromanage every picayune detail of your personal life — including your diet:

The way humanity produces and eats food must radically change to avoid millions of deaths and “catastrophic” damage to the planet, according to a landmark study published Thursday.

The key to both goals is a dramatic shift in the global diet — roughly half as much sugar and red meat, and twice as many vegetables, fruits and nuts, a consortium of three dozen researchers concluded in The Lancet, a medical journal.

Don’t forget the bugs. The United Nations wants us to eat insects.

In a hard tyranny, they threaten to kill you. In a soft tyranny, they site experts who coincidentally always agree with the progressive agenda, then quietly pass another zillion suffocating regulations.

Worse than being bad for us, food is bad for the planet:

[T]he global food system is the single largest emitter of greenhouse gases, the biggest driver of biodiversity loss, and the main cause of deadly algae blooms along coasts and inland waterways.

If they really want more biodiversity, they ought to favor a warmer climate.

As for evidence that our diet has any impact whatsoever on the climate, you will just have to believe their models. These are contrived to produce the desired results.

The authors present a diet to which we must conform if we want to save the planet:

The diet allows for about seven grammes (a quarter of an ounce) of red meat per day, and up to 14. A typical hamburger patty, by comparison, is 125 to 150 grammes. …

Dairy is also limited to about one cup (250 grammes) of whole milk — or its equivalent in cheese or yoghurt — per day, and only one or two eggs per week.

This will require not just media hysteria but a great deal of government coercion. As with all things related to global warming, you have to wonder: is the coercion a means to a delusional end, or are the hysterical delusions a means to enable the coercion?
