In the name of saving the planet, Joe Biden wants to cut America’s beef consumption by 90% and 50% of all meat consumption, overall. His plan also calls for limiting Americans to 4 lbs. of beef per year, the equivalent of one burger per month.
From the Montana Daily Gazette – Biden’s climate proposal includes significant cuts to our carbon emissions by 2030, with zero carbon emissions by 2050. The latter goal would require humanity to become extinct because humans produce carbon dioxide naturally just by breathing. But aside from wishing we would all just die off so the algae and spotted owls can prosper, Biden’s climate goals include no more red meat.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told the media, “We are making an aggressive reduction target for the country. Part of our effort will focus on enhancing climate-smart agricultural practices, the development of biofuels, carbon capture and sequestration, better forest management and reforestation.” He later went on to say that farmers and ranchers would be “given incentives” (welfare) to stop farming and ranching.
Democrats have been setting their sights on ranchers for some time, with some politicians urging their constituents to have “Meatless Mondays,” believing that limiting meat consumption one day a week can save the planet. But Biden’s ambitions are far heavier than just one-day-a-week abstinence from protein.
The supposed damage to the environment by cattle production is their release of methane by passing gas. The geniuses in the Beltway, empowered by an endless amount of cash from the public tax rolls, are now trying to solve the all-important problem of cattle breaking wind.
Wear a mask, get your mRNA shots, give up your guns, eat less beef.
Trust the Science Fiction.

Joe Biden’s radical, far-left handlers have obviously forgotten about how, in April 1996, Oprah Winfrey, the darling of daytime tv talk shows, almost destroyed her own career when she came under fire for what many believed was an attempt to destroy the cattle industry.
CNN– The topic of Winfrey’s show was mad cow disease, an outbreak of which had occurred in Britain. The disease in cattle has been linked to a related disease in humans that kills people by slowly destroying brain tissue.
Though there has not been an outbreak of mad cow disease in the United States, a guest on Winfrey’s show, Howard Lyman, criticized the practice of feeding processed livestock to cattle, which has been linked to the outbreak in Europe. Winfrey responded that Lyman’s remarks “just stopped me cold from eating another burger.”
Lyman, who the cattle producers are also suing, also intimated that an outbreak of a human form of mad cow disease could make AIDS look like the common cold.
Cattle producers claim that the remarks on Winfrey’s top-rated talk show subsequently sent cattle prices tumbling, costing them $12 million.
