The special report on climate and land by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) describes plant-based diets as a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change ― and includes a policy recommendation to reduce meat consumption.

…“We don’t want to tell people what to eat,” … “But it would indeed be beneficial, for both climate and human health, if people in many rich countries consumed less meat, and if politics would create appropriate incentives to that effect.”

    I also especially liked:

    We don’t want to tell people what to eat, but…

    When a guvvie says ‘but,’ there’s a 99% chance they mean “Everything I’ve said up to now is a lie.”

    C.S. Lewis nailed these self-righteous do-gooders years ago:

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

    And Thomas Sowell along with his fellow sage Walter Williams are national treasures. I wish them both long, long lives.
