UN Demands Crackdown on Food Supply to ‘Fight Climate Change’

The United Nations (UN) is demanding that governments around the world launch a coordinated crackdown on the global food supply in order to “fight climate change.”

The call was made by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The head of the FAO is former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) official Qu Dongyu, who served as China’s vice minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

The unelected UN is demanding that sovereign nations place strict limits on their agriculture industries, specifically meat and dairy production, to comply with the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Net Zero” targets for “Agenda 2030.”

On Sunday, the FAO published a report commanding policymakers to substantially alter agricultural markets to align the global agricultural system with the WEF’s green agenda.

Despite the FAO claiming that the move seeks to “save the planet” for “the greater good,” the motivations of the organization have been called into question.

FAO chief Dongyu has been repeatedly accused of using his post at the unelected global institution to advance Beijing’s specific interests, according to Politico.

The outlet notes that Dongyu has ignored other issues, such as food shortages and hunger crises around the world, while focusing on efforts to crack down on Western nations’ agriculture industries.

“Providing healthy food for all, today and tomorrow, is crucial; as is aligning agrifood systems transformation with climate actions,” the FAO report states.

“Agrifood systems should address food security and nutrition needs, but they host a large number of actions aligned with mitigation, adaptation, and resilience objectives.

“Simultaneously, the climate agenda could mobilize climate finance to unlock the potential of these systems and drive their transformation.”

The report asserts that individuals in wealthier nations can “gain” from reduced meat consumption.

The FAO argues that reducing public meat consumption will improve citizens’ health and help them “fight climate change.”

Poorer countries, meanwhile, would allegedly benefit from increasing their protein consumption.

One way to better align agriculture with climate goals is “increasing productivity and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions per unit of product through better livestock genetics well adapted to existing and future climate conditions,” according to the report.

According to a UN insider, however, the organization’s officials are aware that Dongyu is actively pursuing China’s agenda while claiming publicly to be fighting “climate change.”

“Nobody actually takes him seriously: It’s not him; it’s China,” a former UN official reportedly told Politico of Dongyu and his relationship with CCP officials.

“I’m not convinced he would make a single decision without first checking it with the capital.”

The report urges policymakers to “change the livestock population to match not only nutritional needs but also environmental opportunities and constraints.”

The FAO insists that nations must put policies in place to shift away from large livestock animals, like cows, for meat production.

The report also calls for policy to “change consumer behavior regarding portion size and nudge towards responsible decisions by food sellers and consumers.”

Countries must also “change food and beverages taxes and subsidies to provide consumers with an economic and rational decision-making justification for change,” the FAO adds.

The FAO concludes by alleging that livestock production accounts directly for 26% of all “emissions” caused by agricultural activity.

The organization claims this figure can jump up to about 50% when considering upstream and downstream “emissions.”

In the absence of sweeping government action, the FAO estimates that global livestock production could see its “emissions” increase by 40% by 2050.

The new FAO report is the first of three papers to be released by the body.

The next two will be released at the next UN climate summits, known as COP29 and COP30, according to its text.

The COP29 report will focus on laying out regional roadmaps for transforming the global agricultural system.

The COP30 report will set out plans for specific countries, as well as systems for emissions monitoring and “accountability.”
