El 14,5% de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero proviene de la ganadería, especialmente de las macrogranjas, mientras que para que tengamos 1 kilo de carne de vaca se requieren 15.000 litros de agua.— Alberto Garzón? (@agarzon) July 7, 2021

So, let’s review.
We’ve heard that Boris Johnson’s government is considering a meat tax in the UK to raise beef prices. We’ve seen that traditional French cuisine is under attack by militant vegetarians. Now the Spanish are being scolded by the government for eating too much meat.
“A new controversy has broken out in Spain, this time over its love of steak.
The link between red meat consumption and climate change was made by Minister of Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón in a video published on his Twitter account Wednesday. People should eat a more varied diet, with less animal products, because it is healthier and better for the environment: “I don’t want to scold anyone, but to reflect on this before the problem becomes chronic.”
Garzón touched a nerve. Data shows consumers increased their intake of meat by 10.5% last year to around 50 kilos (110 pounds) per person — about double the recommended amount. The industry generates 2.5 million jobs nationally and nearly 9 billion euros ($10.7 billion) in exports.
Within less than 24 hours, the six-minute video racked up more than half a million views, and got the attention of Garzón’s colleagues. “Our cattle farmers are being subjected to criticism that’s deeply unfair,” said Luis Planas, Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. “They deserve respect.” …”
These people ruin everything.
Naturally, they busybodies have broadened their horizons. Free speech has to go. Guns have to go. Historic monuments have to go. Flags have to go. There are so many things … I lose track at times. Invading and ruining your kitchen and dictating what you can eat comes natural to them.
