2022: Germany cutting back meat production to fight ‘global warming’ – To reduce all livestock on German farms by 50%

Great Food Reset: Irish Gov’t Seeks to Sacrifice 300,000 Cows To Reach Net Zero Climate Goals – Kerry targets U.S. farmers Next!

By: Admin – Climate Depot

German daily newspaper Bild: Only one sausage per month for everyone!

The DGE is no longer just about health – But the DGE is no longer just concerned with health reasons! The background to the planned meat reform is something completely different: in the future, environmental factors such as “sustainability” will also be taken into account in the recommendations.

Less meat consumption = better climate? The Lower Saxony Chamber of Agriculture has calculated that even halving meat consumption would bring Germany one percentage point closer to its climate goals. Rather, the big chunk of CO2 emissions is the energy sector (including lignite-fired power plants).

︎ Heike Harstick, general manager of the meat association, is appalled. She tells BILD: “Even in Germany, many people are already undersupplied with certain nutrients, such as iron or vitamin B12. If the new nutritional recommendations presented by the DGE were to remain and such a drastic reduction in animal-based foods recommended, the deficiency would increase.” The planned reference values ​​are “in no way scientifically proven”.

In general, the DGE emphasizes: “Nobody wants to forbid people to eat their currywurst occasionally. But overall meat consumption in the population is too high for health and sustainability reasons, that’s a scientific fact.”


According to a information reported by the German daily Bild, the German Nutrition Society (DGE) now recommends reducing meat consumption to 10 grams per day per person to combat global warming. A real earthquake in the land of currywurst.

On May 22, it was the Court of Auditors which suggested to the French, in a detailed report, to reduce their meat consumption to 500 grams per week.

A sudden and radical renunciation

The average meat consumption of Germans is 109 grams per day, or about 763 grams per week. The population will therefore have to drastically change its eating behavior if it agrees to comply with this new strategy. A previous recommendation from the same organization was less severe (600 grams of meat per week), so why such a reversal?

The German nutrition authority tells the daily Bild that it now takes into account factors other than just “health” to base its decisions on.

Cattle farming sacrificed on the altar of global warming

« No one wants to ban people from their occasional currywurst. But overall meat consumption in the population is too high for health and sustainability reasons, it’s a scientific fact“, indicates the DGE to the German newspaper.

From now on, environmental factors are also an integral part of the evaluation criteria of the nutrition agency. This means that it no longer confines itself to stating how much meat is healthy, or what kind of meat to avoid, it also takes into account the CO₂ balance of food.

Admittedly, the DGE only publishes recommendations. Just don’t follow them. Except that this body is also a certification body.

Not just a recommendation

Some activities depend directly on the approval of the DGE, this is particularly the case for school canteens. Indeed, it awards certificates to canteens. Those that do not have it are almost considered unhealthy. Will the nutrition authority continue to issue certifications to canteens that offer meat beyond the recommended quota?

Note that the directives of the DGE have been taken into account in the new nutritional strategy proposed by the German Minister of Agriculture Cem Özdemir. “The Pathway to the Federal Government’s Nutrition Strategy” was adopted by his cabinet in December 2022 and a plan is due to be approved by the end of the year.

Germany cutting back meat production to fight ‘global warming’ – To reduce all livestock on German farms by 50%

Farmers have been protesting the decision in the same way they recently did in the Netherlands this summer, but the initiative is moving forward beginning this year. Now, to the great surprise of nobody who has been paying attention, the German Meat Industry Association has reported that the country will be facing a severe meat shortage by the time spring arrives and consumers should expect prices to skyrocket, potentially doubling in some cases.

Germany’s green energy policy, ENERGIEWENDE, launched in the year 2000, could have been a cheap lesson for America today.
High subsidies for wind and solar have had a costly impact on consumers who still need fossil fuels.
The Biden Administration’s push toward green energy has failed to balance energy demand with the reality of the resources we have at our disposal. 
American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin once said: “Experience is an expensive school, but fools will learn in no other.” 
However, the Biden administration has chosen to follow foolish Germany, providing heavy subsidies for wind and solar, while suppressing industries that could reliably meet America’s energy needs for hundreds of years, and reduce its carbon footprint.

Assuming that burps and farts of CO2 from livestock cause global warming, (it doesn’t), then eliminating meat consumption just redirects the CO2 from the animals to the feed; grass, sorgum, etc to lay fallow, rot at the end of each year and produce the exact same amount of CO2 through a different process of digestion. If eliminating CO2 is the goal, then all of the pastures must be eliminated, doused with Round-Up and planted with rocks or asphalt. There is no logic in this. It is pure lunacy.

Remember when … we went for the low-hanging fruit first? Tried to get the most bang for the buck?

Why all the emphasis on things that have marginal impact on emissions? (Let’s momentarily pretend GHG emission are really a problem.) What impact will this have? Diddly! And when meat is rationed and atmospheric GHG levels keep rising and the adjusted computer models continue to show warming, what’s next?

This just reinforces what I’ve been saying all along — It’s not about the climate, it’s not about green house gases, or emissions or carbon pollution — it’s about controlling our lives and forcing changes that people would not ordinarily agree on.

They have, actually. The SI of the Ivanovich et al paper discussed in late April has CO2, CH4 and N2O figures for quite a few foods.

From the SI:
beef produces 1.2kg CH4/kg
mutton produces 0.55kg CH4/kg
pig meat produces 0.083 kg CH4/kg
poultry produces 0.014 kg CH4/kg
rice produces 0.11 kg CH4/kg

Thge obvious solution is to switch from beef to mutton, poultry and pork (I haven’t received confirmation of my Nobel Prize, yet), which should keep the German sausage lovers happy.

There appear to be a number of disjoint partly formed nebulous ideas which occasionally coalesce.

  • All livestock are factory farmed in yuge sheds or enormous feedlots.
  • Livestock eat the same foods that humans do.
  • Food is specially grown for livestock on land which could produce food for humans.
  • The land on which food is grown for livestock would otherwise be pristine forest.
  • The land on which food is grown for livestock would otherwise be pristine grassy plains.
  • Livestock graze on land which would otherwise be an idyllic playground for Bambi and Skippy
  • Livestock drink lots of water, which is gone forever
  • Livestock drink lots of water, which shoud be used by humans.
  • Grass grows to a certain height, then stops. It never dies to be broken down by soil bacteria.
  • Without livestock, grass would be eaten by Skippy and Bambi, who produce no enteric methane. Don’t tell them that deer are ruminants.
  • All livestock are overgrazed, so the lack of soil cover causes erosion when it does rain. The Grand Canyon and Great Rift Valley are the result of this.
  • Livestock are grazed on land which would otherwise be grazed

There are sure to be more, but my brain already hurts.

Most livestock production involves replacing one species by another, with the carrying capacity remaining largely unchanged. Growing crops actually reduces the overall carrying capacity, so there may be less enteric methane emissions from the Great Plains now than in the early 1800s.

This constant war against farmed animals is almost as big a scam as Global Warming Climate change .
As I have explained here many times enteric methane is not a threat to any one as not ONE additional atom of carbon or molecule containing carbon is added to the atmosphere over any 10 year time span .
Why do these idiots keep on with this nonsense ? All fodder eaten by farmed livestock has absorbed CO2 from the air to grow .
The very small amount of methane that is emitted during digestion breaks down in the upper atmosphere into CO2 and water vapour .
The methode microbes in the animals paunch digest the cellulose then multiply rapidly to pass through the other stomachs and are absorbed as the animals food.
Continuously grazed pastures are carbon sinks as the animals dung is broken down and mixed into the soil by worms and dung beetles .
The soil under permanent pastures can be measured for carbon content which keeps increasing untill the land is cultivated when carbon breaks down and some CO2 is emitted .
Next these idiots will be campaigning against potatoes and wheat and rice .
Staple foods for most of the world .
Rice paddies are a constant source of methane but they still do not add any additional carbon into the atmosphere .
Why are these people so ignorant ? When I showed a select committee hearing on climate change in New Zealand that atmospheric methane levels were stable for ten years from 1999 untill 2008 .They took no notice because they need the threat of climate change to change the world to socialism that they think will be a better place when we are all poor except for our glorious leaders .
Where was the problem with methane at 1.8 parts per million in the atmosphere for ten years .That proves that farmed livestock pose NO risk to warming the earth .Over those 10 years world coal production was also stable at 4.7 billion tonnes ,no problem there .
Methane levels went up as Asian countries ramped up there coal use which has now exceeded 8 billion tonnes twice sine 2010.
Methane level have increased with the increase in coal use but it will never become a problem because water vapour is at 20,000 parts per million completly over powers any effect that methane could have at 1.9 parts per million.
People who believe that farmed livestock are a problem should stop eating meat and milk products ,also all arable and root crops and rice.
That leaves very little except fish which is limited and some gunk fermented in vats .
People pushing this nonsense are absolutely insane and I could guarantee that 99% of them have never grown any food in their life.

So, in effect, animals eating plants and then us eating those animals is simply a re-cycling of CO2 that already existed previously. How neat!

So according to some Germans malnutrition is good, starvation is good, and famine is good. Didn’t some Germans impose this on others about 85 years ago?

Farmers need to organize to protect their liberty and our food supply and people in general, need to become more involved with growing and producing their own food or at least partnering with farmers.

I’m off to Germany for a two-week holiday. I plan to eat lots of Wurst and Schnitzels. I also expect to see lots of Germans doing the same.
The next thing they’ll be after the beer. Beer is produced from barley and wheat and no doubt fertilisers are used to grow them. Coming soon: You are only allowed one beer a month

I grew up in Bavaria. Wurst is highly cultural. Now, add beer. To ferment the barley makes lots of CO2. Remember the foam, being the remnant after fermentation. Now you have the two most culturally impacted foods in Bavaria. The uprising is certain!
