New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio used executive powers to push through Green New Deal policies as part of the ‘One NYC 2050’ aka the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The new policy will phase out processed meats and reduce beef by 50% for all schools, jails, hospitals and cafeterias where government workers eat. Looking further into the policies reveals a slow creep towards an eventual mandated vegan diet in the name of ‘climate change’.
A GREEN MP has called on Parliament to impose a tax on meat to cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce climate change.

Caroline Lucas told delegates at the Oxford Farming Conference an overhaul of Britain’s agri-industrial food system is needed because it is in “crisis” and is favouring consolidation at the expense of human health, ecology and the livelihoods of farmers. In a speech entitled ‘A radical new vision for British agriculture’ delivered on Friday, Ms Lucas set out her vision for farming which included greater attention to animal welfare, fewer pesticides, a reduction in food waste, and adopting a diet with less meat and dairy products. Half of all farmed animal emissions come from beef and lamb, according to research by scientists Joseph Poore and Thomas Nemecek.

Ms Lucas referred to MP Claire Perry, who said if the Cabinet ate less beef to set an example it would lead to the introduction of a “nanny state”.
Ms Lucas said: “At the risk of incurring the wrath of the energy secretary in particular who said recently that encouraging people to eat less meat would be ‘the worst sort of nanny state ever’, I’d add that we need serious consideration of measures like a meat tax, particularly for beef.
“I accept that British sheep farming is one of the least intensive forms of livestock farming so perhaps a banded system according to production would help, offset for more sustainable meat producers through increased revenue from targeted agri-environment schemes.”
But NFU vice president Stuart Roberts hit back at her demands, tweeting: “We all share the ambition to address climate change but taxing isn’t the way.

“There’s great potential for market based drivers and future agriculture policy to underpin our positive direction of travel without looking at regressive tax solution. Let’s see market-based solutions.”
Earlier in the week, Minettte Batters, president of the National Farmers’ Union called for zero farming emissions by 2040.
Ms Lucas said she felt “encouraged” to hear her comments and hopes she can count on the NFU to support her amendment to the Agriculture Bill to achieve it.
During a speech at the conference this week, Ms Batters said: “Our aim must be ambitious: to get our industry to net zero across all greenhouse gas inventories by 2040 or before.”

But critics argue that poor people will be hit hardest by a meat tax and say it will not bring greenhouse gas emissions down to safe levels.
Nick Allen, head of the British Meat Processors Association, said: “We have one of the best grass growing climate in the world. So we have the ability to turn good grass into good meat better than anyone else.
“I don’t believe it would achieve the desired result.”
Ms Lucas tweeted: “We need huge reduction in meat-eating to avoid climate breakdown. Better manure management and selection of feed can reduce farming emissions – but need to consider potential of #Meattax too.”
One person tweeted back: “So a regressive #Meattax is the answer? Let’s make meat a luxury item for the well-off, no @CarolineLucas. Don’t blame ordinary people for climate change, lecturing them about what they eat.”

Eco Liberty Conclusion:
Yes there is a war on meat eater in the UK in the name of stop climate change bringing forth Agenda 21, Making people eat one of the most unhealthiest diet in the world which is call the Vegan diet. And I do the fact to backup why the Vegan diet is one of the most unhealthiest diet in the world. On sv3rige Youtube channel he interview ex-vegan to allow them to share their story and why going on the vegan diet long-term is a very unhealthy idea. Here one the most recent ex-vegan video on sv3rige channel
I have watch a lot of sv3rige ex-vegan interviews. Why meat is important food the human body many have been brainwash that the Vegan most healthiest and the peaceful diet on earth and in fact it’s the polar opposite. Why the media and government pushing one of most unhealthiest diet on earth and saying that it healthy in fact it’s not. That type movement to push Veganism and bring forth meat prohibition is going to kill a lot people. That we need to expose that animal rights movement, climate movement and any other movements that push veganism, meat and dairy prohibition, Carbon Dioxide Reduction (which is plant food), Geo engineering the climate to stop climate change; and human extinction. They’re there to destroy the environment and life on Earth. Those movement are fund by the elites to brainwash people to push their agenda.
For Eco Liberty we’re there to inform people so we can help human to survive and process to the next level.
Extracted from the Nov. 19, 2012, Glenn Beck Agenda 21 TV broadcast, a TED TV presentation (B. Gates, 2010); and 3 dramatic, faked-by-Beck UN Division of Sustainability TV advertisements (Nov. 2012 http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/… however, they do depict true Agenda 21 sustainability policies.

As always Christopher has some interesting views on the developments at the recently held United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in New York 25th-27th Sep 2015 the upcoming Paris Climate Summit, Agenda 2030, Democracy, The Leftist Media. The link to the UN Agenda 2030 is here: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org… and the link to Agenda 21 can be found here: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org…
This document describes nothing less than a global government takeover of every nation across the planet. The “goals” of this document are nothing more than code words for a corporate-government fascist agenda that will imprison humanity in a devastating cycle of poverty while enriching the world’s most powerful globalist corporations like Monsanto and DuPont.
In the interests of helping wake up humanity, I’ve decided to translate the 17 points of this 2030 agenda so that readers everywhere can understand what this document is really calling for. To perform this translation, you have to understand how globalists disguise their monopolistic agendas in “feel good” language.
Bruce Campbell, director of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is interested in South Asian farmers reducing “the amount of water needed for their rice crops by 25 to 30%” to facilitate a new climate-smart revolution (CSR) to agriculture.

In New York, the Climate Smart program (CSP) oversees “efforts to meet the challenges posed by climate change.”
CSP is a “state-local partnership to meet the economic, social and environmental challenges that climate change poses.”
This program combines public health and safety with first responder emergency efforts to secure infrastructure against climate change.
Climate Smart Communities (CSC) is being sold as a way to:
• Lead the nation in climate leadership
• Save taxpayer money
• Receive federal grants
• Build a network of other participating cities
• Devise smart policies and practices
• Create pollution-free cities
• Increase energy independent
• Spur economic growth
Not only just in the USA but all across the world. Here in New Zealand the government is not using force but using chemtrails and other Geo-engineering method to create drought to make Agriculture difficult or impossible; also that happen different part of the world like USA, Europe, Australia. That all about in the name of Agenda 21 the removal of our property rights. Having the government using Geo-engineering to create a drought to destroy the agriculture economy to bring forth Agenda 21 is a very good tactic because a lot people don’t question the weather and Geo-engineering itself. Also the Climate Change scare is bring used to bring forth control.
