Meat rationing proposed to fight purported global warming

Thomas Lifson
Warmist hysteria continues to escalate, as more drastic measures are proposed in tandem with hyperbolic predictions of doom. Big Brother will soon control what you eat if the hysterics get their way.

According to the Guardian, a report from the "Food Climate Research Network" based at the [U.K] University of Surrey says:

People will have to be rationed to four modest portions of meat and one litre of milk a week if the world is to avoid run-away climate change, a major new report warns.

The report... also says total food consumption should be reduced, especially "low nutritional value" treats such as alcohol, sweets and chocolates.

Meanwhile, a report from Australia  warns that failure to take such measures will  "haunt humanity forever":

Failure to deal with climate change now will "haunt humanitAl Gorey" forever, the nation's top greenhouse adviser has warned as he issued a rallying cry for action. Professor Ross Garnaut has warmed to the idea of a deep, fast cut to Australia's emissions in his final report, released today. After infuriating green groups earlier this month by calling for a 10 per cent cut in Australia's emissions by 2020, he's now more open to a deeper 25 per cent cut. Prof Garnaut issued a blunt assessment of the dangers of climate change as he launched the 620-page report. "If we fail, on a balance of probabilities, the failure of our generation will haunt humanity until the end of time," he told reporters in Canberra. "We are entering territory here that humanity has not been in before. "We will delude ourselves if we think that uncertainty about the climate change science... is a cause for delay." [...]  Prof Garnaut said the global financial crisis, which worsened overnight, was no excuse to delay acting on climate change.  "Financial crises are short-term phenomena ... climate change is a long-term structural issue."

Get ready for Al Gore telling you to limit what you consume.
