They came for your car, your light bulb, your dishwasher and washing machine, your electricity, your airline flight and so much more.
Add your steak to the list.
Anti-meat crusaders have been pushing hard in recent months to use climate change to achieve their goal of forcing you into an all plant-based diet. This year their rhetoric became a big part of the dialogue at UN COP 25. They’ve introduced a new buzzword you’ll be hearing a lot of, “peak meat.” As CFACT’s team learned — as usual, it’s do as I say, not as I do.
What was the big seller for anyone looking for lunch at the UN climate conference? Burger King — Delicious all meat American burgers, with not a single one of Burger King’s latest meatless Whoppers in sight.
CFACT met with climate delegates as they lined up for juicy burgers and shot a fun video investigation you’ll enjoy as much as a juicy red steak. Our team of reporters included “Benny the Bull,” who was none to amused at UN hypocrites feasting on his friends at the COP. Watch Benny in action here.
Harrison Ford, who is a pilot in real life as well as in Star Wars, keeps a fleet of private aircraft for his personal amusement. Ford bragged not long ago that he’s “so passionate about flying” that he will often hop in one of his planes and ‘fly up the coast for a cheeseburger.”
It’s got to be fun to be an idle, rich movie star living off residuals.
When Ford showed up at the UN COP, CFACT’s Marc Morano asked him about his cheeseburger flights and he countered that he’s “now a vegetarian. We’d like to know how Ford got to the COP. We’ll wager our family cars and humble appliances that the Hollywood star continues to live a high-carbon, luxury lifestyle that would keep scores of Americans or entire African villages in lighting and refrigeration for ages.
Oh well, it’s for us little people to tighten our belts. Our high-flying climate masters need their perks if they are to have the energy to wisely decide how the rest of us should live.
CFACT’s investigation into UN burger hypocrisy made a splash in the media and was picked up by Fox News, The Washington Times and more.
So far COP 25 delegates have been far more successful at scoring a burger than advancing the Paris Climate Accord. Left-wing protesters became so incensed when the climate talks stalled that over 200 of them, including the kids from Greta Thunberg’s “Fridays for Future” staged a protest where they banged on pots and chanted outside the main plenary session. UN security guards tossed them all out of the COP. (At least it’s not us for a change). Our burger scoop and the rest of our action-rich agenda was all officially run through and sanctioned by our UN minders.
Why is the UN having a hard time advancing the global warming ball? One name — Donald J. Trump and his plans to pull America out of the Paris Climate Accord. It’s no fun making spending plans when you can’t leach off the world’s biggest economy.
The European block did announce plans for 28 nations to go “carbon neutral” by mid century, but had this in place before COP 25 started. At the COP they sheepishly had to admit that Poland refused to go along. Polish coal is cheap, plentiful and reliable. The last thing the Pole’s want is to be dependent on Russian energy. They’ve met the Russians before. Smart Poles.
COP 25 followed the usual script and went into overtime. The UN is likely about to announce big victories that are nothing of the sort. What is actually happening at this year’s UN climate talks is a wait-and-see game geared toward next November’s American election.
After watching Britain give the Tory party its biggest victory since Thatcher during the talks, and moves now afoot to pull Britain out of the E.U. once and for all, government by global bureaucracy is under threat.
The UN is plenty scared.
CFACT is honored to be front and center at the UN climate talks in Madrid. We’re doing important work and are under no illusion as to who sent us here. Without our friends and supporters our work stops cold. You came through again. CFACT’s mission to COP 25 is close to fully funded. Will you make an important gift right now and put us over the top? Thank you.
