If Charles really wanted to save the planet, he should have neutered himself after having William and spared us Harry’s carbon footprint. Yes Charles, it is the English countryside which is destroying the planet. The food in the supermarket is way too cheap and affordable.
“LONDON — Prince Charles went on the airwaves Wednesday to warn that industrial farming in Britain and around the world was ruining the planet and destroying family farms and the web of life in rural communities, especially in his beloved England.
Dressed in a smart summer-weight gray suit, speaking into a microphone beside a vase of hydrangea blooms, the heir to the throne spoke of the importance of nature, healthy soil and carbon sequestration — themes that would be music to the ears of many green activists.
Charles is an ardent environmentalist, along with being a critic of modern architecture and of anti-immigrant populism …”
I’m starting to get the overwhelming impression that climate change activism is nothing but rich White people virtue signaling. It is overwhelmingly wealthy and educated White people who are offended by things like the peasants being able to eat the same food that they do.
Meanwhile, fake populist Boris Johnson’s government is considering a meat tax in the UK to reduce meat consumption, but fears a Yellow Vest-style populist uprising:
“After the UK’s government climate change advisers urged it to implement policy to reduce meat and dairy consumption, Boris Johnson’s hand-picked food strategy planner reportedly says a meat tax “may be necessary” in the future.
Restaurateur Henry Dimbleby, chosen to lead Downing Street’s ‘National Food Strategy’ formulation body, believes that a levy on processed meat staples like burgers, steaks, ham, sausages, and chicken nuggets could be needed in order to tackle climate change, according to media reports.
However, Dimblebly is expected to tell the prime minister not to introduce any such tax in the short-term because of the potential unrest it could lead to during the pandemic, according to The Sun.
Citing unnamed sources familiar with a draft document due to be released next month, the paper noted that ministers fear street protests over food prices similar to those conducted by the ‘Gilets Jaunes’ (Yellow Vest) movement in France in recent years. …
In April, Johnson committed to reducing the UK’s greenhouse emissions by 78% by 2035. This would reportedly require convincing the public to cut down meat and dairy intake by a fifth. …”
It is reportedly off the table for now due to COVID, but clearly this is a real issue. Elites are pushing the issue of making food more expensive. Governments are tip toeing around it.
“Cutting meat consumption would help the U.K. reduce greenhouse gas emissions and free up land for capturing carbon, according to the review.
Still, a meat tax would be “politically impossible,” and the government would be better off nudging consumers to change their eating habits, while investing in measures such as reducing methane emissions from cattle or developing alternative proteins, the report showed. It also called for a 1 billion-pound investment in innovation to create a better food system. …”
As we saw with Prince Harry, the push for depopulation and making food more expensive is coming from the top down. This seems to be true everywhere.
