The UK public should be urged by the government to protect the climate by eating less meat and dairy produce, advisers say.

Lies on top of other lies.
The globalist power brokers are still going to eat their steaks just as the elites did in Soylent Green.
I'm sure they want Man to also live by "every word that proceeds from the mouth " of the globalists.
And the globalist power brokers still jet internationally to conferences rather than staying home and telecommuting.
They want fewer men (and women) to live, period.
They have stated for half a century that there are too many people in this world.
When are they going to figure out they are missing the biggest source of greenhouse gas going and ban water?
