Pushing for a Meat Tax

Oh, fer cryin’ out loud.

Organic and regular beef are just as environmentally damaging, they concluded — while organic chicken actually results in slightly more greenhouse emissions overall.

 

Based on their findings, the team propose that policy measures — ‘meat taxes’ — are needed to ‘close the gap between current market prices and the true costs of food.’

 

Such taxation, the team said, would call for a 40 per cent increase in regular beef’s cost, but only a 25 per cent rise for organic beef, which is already more expensive.

So we increase food insecurity for lower-income folks while funneling more money into the hands of politicians and bureaucrats.
