Food lawyer: Climate Warriors Have a Cow


“Dutch livestock farmers are increasing­ly outraged” over a 2019 court ruling that’s forcing “thousands of them out of the business — by design,” reports Reason’s Baylen Linnekin. “The ruling ordered the Dutch government to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020”: nearly double the cuts since 1990, within just a year. (It failed.) That led to a government plan to “radically” reduce livestock, sparking farmers’ “fury.” Activists also target meat consumptio­n: “We are expected to believe eating meat is callous and dumb because these increasing­ly vocal and bold activists tell us so,” yet “meat is no less valid or deserving of protection than any other food.” “Climate change is a problem”; “banning meat is not the answer.”
