The Green New Deal Will No Longer Have Meat on the Menu

Published

on

Democrat’s recently unveiled Green New Deal might get in the way of your favorite carnivorous treats.

Spearheaded by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.), the Green New Deal is a government-directed plan to eliminate greenhouse gas emission through carbon taxes, confiscatory levels of taxation, and a myriad of other top-down schemes.

One of the ways the “enlightened” political class in DC wants to reduce greenhouse emissions is by cutting emissions from “farting cows”. In a section of the Green New Deal FAQ sheet that addresses the differences between reaching “100% clean and renewable” energy and “100% renewable” energy, Green New Deal advocates were quick to pin the blame on methane emissions coming from cattle. They conceded that they won’t be able to get to zero greenhouse emission because they aren’t sure that they’ll “be able to fully get rid of farting cows”.

Naturally, groups like the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) have pushed back against these claims on cattle’s impact on greenhouse emissions. Colin Woodall, NCBA senior vice president of government affairs, chimed in on the matter:

Despite all the progress we’ve made on the environmental front in recent decades, some policymakers still seem to think targeting U.S. beef producers and consumers will make a huge impact on global emissions.

Claims that cattle contribute significantly to global warming are dubious at best. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that direct greenhouse gas emissions coming from cattle and their manure are only 2 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.

Virginia Tech and USDA-ARS have also countered the livestock argument. Their research came to the conclusion that if all livestock were eliminated from production agriculture U.S. greenhouse gas emissions would only drop by 2.6 percent or 0.36 percent globally.

Blaming beef for increasing greenhouse emissions is not a novel concept.

The UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) published Livestock’s Long in 2006, arguing that meat production contributed to 18 percent of all greenhouse-gas emissions.

However, such an assertion was challenged by Frank Mitloehner at the University of California at Davis. Mitloehner countered by claiming that the FAO’s original analysis yielded an “apples-and-oranges analogy that truly confused the issue” and led many people to believe that meat production produced a higher output of greenhouse emissions than transportation.

Sadly, Green New Deal proponents don’t care about facts and only care about policies that line up special interests’ pockets, while consolidating their own political power.

If that means taxing your juicy steak to oblivion, so be it.

Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing

Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty

According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.

This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.

Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.

Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.

Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September. 

Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.

Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.

Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.

Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of  the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
