Climate campaigners have spent years pushing for defunding and divestment from fossil fuel companies. Now, as their arguments gain traction, they are taking aim at the emissions-heavy meat and dairy industries.
At some point those companies will no longer generate any revenue due to ecological limits. The financial markets arent pricing in those risks, said Mark Campanale, founder of Carbon Tracker, the think-tank that popularised the notion that global warming would lead to unviable stranded assets in the hydrocarbon sector.
Fossil fuel companies dismissed for years the idea of an inevitable energy transition making their investments unviable but some now acknowledge the risks. BP and Royal Dutch Shell have both written down the value of their assets in recent months.
With rising awareness of the carbon impact of the food system, which the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates accounts for up to 37 per cent of global emissions, investors are starting to take note.

These bastids never stop.
No, they do not. They are worse than even the most zealous Puritan ever imagined being. These fun-sucking douchebags are terrified that someone, somewhere may be enjoying life. I despise them.
They can have my bacon when they pry it from my cold dead hands.
OKAY then, I pledge to have meat at every meal for the next week!
Just remind them that Hitler was a strict vegetarian.
“forbidding to eat meat”
The human body needs meats and fats to function properly. They want people stupid.
The amount of carbon released into the atmosphere when a cow eats grass is exactly the same as when the grass dies and is eaten by soil bacteria.
Ditto with trees.
Forests aren’t carbon sinks, they’re carbon stores. When the tree dies, it releases just as much carbon as it absorbed.
In any mature ecosystem, the net carbon absorption is zero.
The only exception is the ocean, where carbon sinks to the deeps.
The brown outs in CA might be a set back for no carbon dweebs. People like the AC on in the summer. Tend to get cranky when electricity is not available.
They aspire to be little Hitlers
They would take that as a compliment and a goal
They’re a bunch of little Hitlers, so being anti-meat is right up their alley.
Hey, I’ve got no problem with gulping
down a 1-1/2” thick ribeye when it’s
104 deg outside. A baked potato,
smothered with sour cream and butter, and
a salad slathered with blue cheese dressing,
compliments the steak. And to wash it all
down, a mug of icy cold Sam Adams Boston
Lager. 30 minutes later, I’m ready for
the apple pie (still warm), with vanilla
ice cream. This is America.
They want you to not be able to afford a steak. Or hamburger, for that matter.
Ho Harris is upset a tactic of acquiring meat she used her whole career
Where it is also stored...
But the atmosphere is like 35% carbon, right?

Democrats are going to control what we eat?
