First They Killed Your Pet to Protect The Planet
Now the greenazi’s would like you to protect the planet by reducing the carbon footprint of the food you eat. In other words, stop eating in order to protect the planet.
STOCKHOLM — Shopping for oatmeal, Helena Bergstrom, 37, admitted that she was flummoxed by the label on the blue box reading, “Climate declared: .87 kg CO2 per kg of product.”
A dairy farm near Uppsala is among the Swedish companies now focusing on the carbon dioxide emitted in food production.
“Right now, I don’t know what this means,” said Ms. Bergstrom, a pharmaceutical company employee.
But if a new experiment here succeeds, she and millions of other Swedes will soon find out. New labels listing the carbon dioxide emissions associated with the production of foods, from whole wheat pasta to fast food burgers, are appearing on some grocery items and restaurant menus around the country.
People who live to eat might dismiss this as silly. But changing one’s diet can be as effective in reducing emissions of climate-changing gases as changing the car one drives or doing away with the clothes dryer, scientific experts say.
Silly Swedes. What you won’t see is any empirical study noting the direct correlation of a change in global climate by adjusting a diet around this new measurement. You most likely will see the Swedish government taking these calculations and using them to ban foods based on their carbon dioxide rating.
