Powerful globalist elites jetting to the United Nations COP28 climate summit in Dubai have been served gourmet smoked wagyu burgers and luxury BBQ while they demand that the general public is banned from eating meat to fight “global warming.”
After they arrive by private jet for the two-week conference in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), attendees are offered a wide variety of gourmet food options from vendors who serve beef.
In between battling to end the so-called “climate crisis,” the noble “eco-warriors” are treated to lavish food offerings, including “juicy beef,” “slabs of succulent meat,” smoked wagyu burgers, Philly cheesesteaks and “melt-in-your-mouth BBQ” in addition to African street BBQ, fast-casual Mexican fare, and an Asian option that has a “touch of French flair,” according to the summit’s online portal.
The revelation comes as the UN faces criticism for preparing a first-of-its-kind report that is expected to be published at the summit.
The report includes demands for governments around the world to lower public meat consumption.
Attendees at the summit, including Democrat President Joe Biden’s “Climate Czar” John Kerry, are pushing for public meat consumption to be eliminated.
The UN’s Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) will publish its first-ever global food systems roadmap during an upcoming COP28 session.
The report is expected to recommend nations that “over-consume meat” to limit their consumption as part of a broader effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The United Nations expects nations to provide a roadmap for limiting the meat supply with a goal to end consumption entirely, as Slay News reported.
For years, the UN has been calling for individuals to ditch animal-based diets.
The unelected globalist organization insists that eating meat “has a high impact on our planet.”
“FAO emphasizes the critical need for an innovative plan and a concrete package of solutions to overhaul agrifood systems,” the UN said in a statement.
“The Global Roadmap is positioned as a strategic tool to demonstrate that accelerated climate actions can transform agrifood systems, simultaneously addressing food security and nutrition challenges today and in the future without breaching the 1.5 degrees threshold.
“In this roadmap, FAO is urging for good food for today and tomorrow.”
“The core goal is to achieve [Sustainable Development Goal 2]; Zero Hunger, while being climate-friendly, to attract climate financing for mitigation, adaptation, and resilience, along with the actions required to support the achievement of 1.5 degrees (by 2050) based on country commitment, consensus, and country transition,” FAO’s statement continued.
However, despite the recommendations of the upcoming FAO report and the UN’s repeated calls for people to transition to plant and insect-based diets, roughly a third of the food vendors at COP28 provide meat options, according to the summit’s data.
The summit said that figure represented a victory as part of its commitment to deliver “environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, delicious, and nutritious food and beverage.”
In May, Sultan Al Jaber, the president-designate of COP28, said in a letter to activists that the summit would “ensure the availability of plant-based food options that are affordable, nutritious, and locally and regionally sourced, with clear emissions labeling.”
His letter came in response to repeated calls from the Food@COP climate activist group for the summit to cut back on meat options.
“We know that our food systems are intrinsically linked to the fate of our natural world, and so we have made the progressive decision to ensure that we explore how the catering provided across the event can be responsible and climate-conscious, helping to echo the emphasis we have placed on the Emirates Declaration,” Mariam Almheiri, the director of COP28’s food system program, said in October.
Among the food options offered for attendees are:
- The Hungry Hub, which offers beef and meat
- Philly Jawn by Ghostburger, which offers burgers and Philly cheesesteaks
- Swaggers, which offers smoked ribs and smoked wagyu burgers
- Mattar Farm Live Cooking, which serves “unbelievable smoked meats” and “melt-in-your-mouth BBQ”
Of course, the meats on offer are being served to the global elites attending the summit and are not meant for the taxpaying general public.
Rep. Mike Flood (R-NE), a member of the Congressional Beef Caucus, accused the UN of “hypocrisy” in a statement.
“The hypocrisy of the global elites never ceases to amaze,” Flood said.
“They’re the same ones who want working people to swear off flying at all while they get to travel to glitzy conferences on private jets to push a radical green agenda.”
“COP28 putting meat on the menu just proves that we need beef and all kinds of meat to help feed the world,” he continued.
“And that’s why I’ll keep fighting the U.N. and the global elites who are trying to kill meat production, which would only shatter the world’s food security and end an age-old way of life for millions of farmers and ranchers around the world.”
The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), which represents American beef producers, also criticized the UN ahead of the FAO’s global food systems’ road map report.
The NCBA points to the industry’s relatively low carbon footprint.
In recent years, the American agriculture industry has made unprecedented gains in lowering emissions from meat production.
In fact, U.S. farmers only contribute a fraction of global emissions, far less than China, for example.
“As delegates from around the world are preparing to gather in Dubai to identify solutions to the climate change crisis, we call on them to look at solutions holistically,” NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane said in a statement.
“Solutions that seek to reduce meat consumption are misguided and will only lead to limited consumer choice and higher food prices.”
“At a time when malnutrition plagues countries across the world, a reduction of high-quality animal protein would disproportionately impact consumers who can ill-afford to pay more and are ultimately at the highest risk of malnutrition,” Lane added.
“Reducing beef consumption in the U.S. is not a realistic or impactful solution for climate change.
“America’s beef producers and consumers around the globe deserve real solutions to the climate issue, not artificial barriers to protein consumption that will do nothing to solve the world’s climate issues.”
The global food system — which includes land-use change, actual agricultural production, packaging, and waste management — generates about 18 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year, according to a March 2021 study published in the Nature Food Journal.
The figure is the equivalent of 34% of total worldwide emissions.
FAO data indicates livestock alone is responsible for around 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
In the U.S., however, agriculture alone generates about 10% of total greenhouse gas emissions, federal data shows.
The American agriculture sector accounts for just 1.4% of global emissions and has implemented a wide range of solutions, making it the nation’s lowest-emitting economic sector.
And beef cattle in the U.S. are responsible for just 2% of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions and less than 0.5% of the world’s emissions.
Nevertheless, Kerry and his globalist allies at the UN want Americans to be banned from eating meat to “save the planet.”
