The United Nations is expected to release a report advocating for reduced meat consumption to mitigate climate impacts.

Despite this, meat was prominently featured on the menu at the recent COP28 climate meeting.

The Food and Agriculture Organization plans to publish a global food systems road map calling on countries to eat less meat, while emphasizing the need for innovative solutions to transform agrifood systems. (Trending: Kid Rock Rages Against ‘Woke’ Target)

According to Fox News, “Among the food options offered for attendees are The Hungry Hub, which offers beef and meat; Philly Jawn by Ghostburger, which offers burgers and Philly cheesesteaks; Swaggers, which offers smoked ribs and smoked wagyu burgers; and Mattar Farm Live Cooking, which serves ‘unbelievable smoked meats’ and ‘melt-in-your-mouth BBQ.”

The Business Standard reported, “The global food systems’ road map to 1.5C is expected to be published by the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) during the COP28 summit next month. Nations that over-consume meat will be advised to limit their intake, while developing countries — where under-consumption of meat adds to a prevalent nutrition challenge — will need to improve their livestock farming, according to the FAO.”

“FAO emphasizes the critical need for an innovative plan and a concrete package of solutions to overhaul agrifood systems,” continued the FAO,” continued the report.

“The Global Roadmap is positioned as a strategic tool to demonstrate that accelerated climate actions can transform agrifood systems, simultaneously addressing food security and nutrition challenges today and in the future without breaching the 1.5 degrees threshold. In this roadmap, FAO is urging for good food for today and tomorrow,” explained the organization.

The U.N. website recommends consuming more plant-based foods and less meat and dairy for a healthier planet.

“Eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds, and less meat and dairy, can significantly lower your environmental impact,” advises the U.N. website.

“Producing plant-based foods generally results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions and requires less energy, land, and water. Shifting from a mixed to a vegetarian diet can reduce your carbon footprint by up to 500 kilograms of CO2e per year (or up to 900 kilograms for a vegan diet),” added the U.N..

However, this has been criticized by Rep. Mike Flood, who sees it as hypocrisy from global elites and emphasizes the importance of meat production for food security.

Rep. Mike Flood said, “The hypocrisy of the global elites never ceases to amaze.”

“They’re the same ones who want working people to swear off flying at all while they get to travel to glitzy conferences on private jets to push a radical green agenda,” he continuing.

Adding, “COP28 putting meat on the menu just proves that we need beef and all kinds of meat to help feed the world.”

“And that’s why I’ll keep fighting the U.N. and the global elites who are trying to kill meat production, which would only shatter the world’s food security and end an age-old way of life for millions of farmers and ranchers around the world,” he concluded.
