It has been confirmed that the United Nations will begin to advocate for a reduction in meat consumption this December at the COP28 summit. The UN states that “richer nations” must do their part to adhere to the Paris Climate Accords by changing their dietary needs. The people making these decisions on our behalf will be flying to the summit on their private jets and dining in luxury. These top 1% of “polluter elites” produce more carbon emissions than the bottom 66% combined.

The EAT-Lancet Commission (also called EAT Forum) has partnered with the UN to provide future dietary guidelines. “While meat is an important source of key nutrients including protein, iron and vitamin B12, excess meat consumption can harm our health and the planet. Aim to consume no more than 98 grams of red meat (pork, beef or lamb), 203 grams of poultry and 196 grams of fish per week,” their website states. A chicken breast contains about 24 grams of protein, for perspective.

“The EAT-Lancet Commission provide scientific targets that will allow us to feed up to 10 billion people by 2050 within planetary boundaries.” This is the precise target that the World Economic Forum has been targeting – 2050. The WEF has stated that since the world’s population will grow to 9.7 billion by 2050, we need to begin incorporating insects into our diets to feed the additional 2 billion mouths.
