‘Staggering Disconnect’: Climate Summit Boasts Opulent Beef, Seafood Menu Despite Spearheading Anti-Meat Initiatives

Meat for me, but not for thee!

World leaders and officials attending the United Nations COP27 climate conference can spend up to $100 per entree to eat red meat, seafood and other gourmet menu items. However, the UN has previously discouraged red meat consumption due to the carbon emissions that beef farming creates.

Delegates who arrive at Egypt’s beachside resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh to discuss ways to mitigate the “climate crisis” are able to enjoy COPGourmet’s $100 Angus beef medallion which is served with mushroom sauce and sauteed potatoes, according to screenshots obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. However, the UN aims to “minimize emissions per calorie” and to reduce meat consumption in order to prevent the planet from overheating, according to a COP27 food security document. (RELATED: Two Of The World’s Top CO2 Emitters Are Snubbing The UN’s Climate Summit)

“The menu on offer is yet another example of the staggering disconnect between so-called leaders and the people they represent,” Nathan McGovern, a spokesperson for the animal and climate activist group Animal Rebellion, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It is hypocritical for delegates at COP27 to be dining on the destruction of our natural world, whilst simultaneously claiming to be trying to protect it.”

“It was amusing to hear about how Angus beef and sea bass was being served to certain officials, while at the same time, side events at COP27 were championing the idea of going vegan and eliminating red meat,” Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow President Craig Rucker told the DCNF.

The VIP menu is only available for COP27 attendees who have security clearance to enter the private, “Blue Zone” of the conference. Such attendees can also purchase the $125 “classic cocktail” package to receive unlimited cocktails, foie gras and other savoury as well as sweet snacks for up to 90 minutes.

The UN organizers vowed to make the conference a sustainable and carbon-neutral event to demonstrate their “ambitious aspiration” towards climate action, according to the COP27 official website.

“The conference also had chilly air conditioning, often left its doors wide open to the desert air and featured some 400 private jets flying into a posh Red Sea resort area in a country that gets 90% of its energy from fossil fuels,” Rucker said.

COPGourmet and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

They were obviously fed to the cattle prior to slaughter. Second-hand bugs.

You can critize all those private jets used to travel to a climate summit. But please realize, those emissions provide leverage on reduzing the emissions of you suckers, making it totally worth it.

Just the same is true for the delicious meat they eat. It makes them stronger, helps them to concentrate, on how to get the meat off your plates. You sure would not want to risk such an achievement by having them to starve on bugs they refuse to eat.

See the bigger scope!

I used to keep Aberdeen Angus cows – they are are very lovely in every way.
Hence I can cheerfully assert that what’s on the plate in the picture up there shows exactly what the cows used to leave behind in the field.

It’ll be alive with bugs, grubs and creeping crawlies underneath while topside should be fizzing with those brown/yellows flies you find exclusively atop of Cow Pies. (Just like House Flies but aren’t)

Just as it is supposed to be and how a Healthy Field, Farm, Soils, Climate and Planet are supposed to operate.
There’ll be nice weather too.

I used to let mine eat (Italian and Perennial) grass though, not whatever them string-beany things are and none too much of that tri-folate weed is – it’s full of Coumarin – AKA: Rat poison
(haha, the human animal cannot lie)

And I don’t see any much fat, of the animal saturate variety, on that plate.

Thus: We really really are on Planet Stupid here and when we do wipe ourselves out, it’s nothing less than we had coming and this/that level of stupidity deserves.
Not least as it extends to nearly aspect of the Rich, Intelligent and Never Better things we call

  • Science
  • Education
  • (all variations on) Politics
  • Healthcare & Food
  • Social Relationships

Everything is now wrong.

Well done Paul Homewood. Now the bigger task is to get these facts out to a wider audience – the WUWT faithful already know that these people are power-crazed hypocrites but the rest of the world still thinks of them as crusaders for a better world.

Any chance of getting this story into the global media? I’m thinking the FT, Wall Street Journal, P.A., Reuters, some of the networks other than Fox News etc. The BBC, of course, wouldn’t touch it with a bargepole as it goes against its Marxist worldview of what news actually is.

But Paul if you can get this story mainstreaming and in front of people who have not yet woken up to the global climate conspiracy it would deliver a much-deserved kick in the cojones where it is needed – and alert more folk to what is going on.

The MSM will never publish such a story. Regarding the BBC, I see that it’s portrayed in the 5th season of The Crown on Netflix- and not favorably.

The problem is, though they rightly point out the outrageous level of hypocrisy, they are still selling the bullshit that eating meat is “bad” and we all need to eat unhealthy “plant based” diets.

The real message that needs to be spread is how completely WRONG the imaginary “meat consumption is bad for the Earth” bullshit really is. Raising cattle is “carbon neutral,” NOT THAT IT MATTERS, because the grass they eat would otherwise die and release the CO2 into the atmosphere if it wasn’t eaten.

Yes, I was wondering about the various dietary restrictions of the delegates. There’s quite a lot needs/demands/exclusions to be catered for at these parties but, then, the catering is reportedly always very good. All that money isn’t going to spend itself.

Is there / has anyone done, any research on the carbon footprint of a vegetarian against an omnivore? Paul McCartney possibly?
I’m no expert but it seems there are a lot of resources used to grow crops so I just wondered what the difference was

Since Vegans/Vegetarians get special dispensation in most cases, why not this one?

I look forward to seeing them eat hemp, and they should be forced to find other names for their pathetic meat-a-like products….. bacon, sausages etc they ain’t.

Ah, this is very much in my professional patch!

Normally when you are scamming a mark, you keep him sweet by assuring him that everything is copacetic. Only at the end, when you’re pulling the rug from under him and taking everything he owns, do you drop the pretence.

It looks as if we have reached that point now, and the people are so powerless that our new masters can happily delight in rubbing our faces in it…

I heard a couple of days ago that The Students Union of Stirling University has banned the sale of meat and dairy products.
The Carse of Stirling produces lots of fine beef, chicken meat, sheep meat and milk.
I wonder if they will ban the sale of lettice and tomatoes flown in from the south of Spain?

I remember going to Stirling Cattle Market with my dad 60 years ago. He was in vetinary sales and used it for networking. Sales are still held there.
There’s a bit of irony too, The MacRobert Arts Centre at the University of Stirling was funded by the MacRobert Trust and the MacRobert family own a large estate in Aberdeen so a lot of the money for The Arts Centre will have come from the proceeds farming on that estate.

I feel that people who point out the hypocrisy of the COP 27 attendees in eating beef are missing the whole point, which is to rub our noses in the fact that we’re mere peasants who don’t deserve the luxuries of the Elites.

Talking of staggering disconnects

“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” —Dr. Paul Ehrlich, Anne Ehrlich, and Dr. John Holdren, Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, 1970

And now
“Given the existential threat posed by global heating, the concept that growth is good is being seriously challenged by those who say policymakers should be aiming for zero growth or even degrowth economies, ones that are shrinking. Make no mistake, it is a good thing that the accepted wisdom is being questioned.”


Making everybody semi-equally impoverished, cold and hungry is the [misanthropic] answer. Back to the neo-feudal future.

Do they raise Angus beef in Egypt? If not, that beef was also flown in for the occassion.

Eat what I say, not as I do.

November 18, 2022 12:16 pm

It’s so in-your-face now, like they using Animal Farm as an instruction manual. The pigs fly to their regular climate nosh-ups, preferably in a private jet, and pig out on Angus beef medallions while telling the rest of us to eat bugs (to offset their emissions?) and they’ve made Generation Greta so fearful of the weather they couldn’t possibly have a baby, so they glue themselves to roads to stop other people using oil. The mash has met the Monet, and the politics of envy dictates African countries can’t get rich using the resources the West used, but China gets a pass to burn all the coal they wish because they embrace the New World Order: Communism.

Why would anyone believe the 40,000 delegates keep going back to these conferences. They know that they’ve been accomplishing less and less in trying to reduce fossil fuel use and emissions and to increase the adoption of renewables. They also know that these meetings could be held via teleconferences and save everyone the expenses; but since they’re financed by leftist governments and Green organizations who pay for the plane trips, food, drink and accommodations, why not continue the charade?
