They came for your car, your light bulb, your dishwasher and washing machine, your electricity, your airline flight and so much more.
Add your steak to the list.
The global warming agenda is the gift that keeps on giving for everyone who wants to control what you do, and like the mafia, wants a piece of the action whenever money is on the line.
Anti-meat crusaders have been pushing hard in recent months to use climate change to achieve their goal of forcing you into an all plant-based diet. This year their rhetoric became a big part of the dialogue at UN COP 25. They've introduced a new buzzword you'll be hearing a lot of, "peak meat." As CFACT's team learned -- as usual, it's do as I say, not as I do.
What was the big seller for anyone looking for lunch at the UN climate conference? Burger King -- Delicious all meat American burgers, with not a single one of Burger King's latest meatless Whoppers in sight.
CFACT met with climate delegates as they lined up for juicy burgers and shot a fun video investigation you'll enjoy as much as a juicy red steak. Our team of reporters included "Benny the Bull," who was none to amused at UN hypocrites feasting on his friends at the COP. Watch Benny in action here.
Harrison Ford, who is a pilot in real life as well as in Star Wars, keeps a fleet of private aircraft for his personal amusement. Ford bragged not long ago that he's "so passionate about flying" that he will often hop in one of his planes and 'fly up the coast for a cheeseburger."
It's got to be fun to be an idle, rich movie star living off residuals.
When Ford showed up at the UN COP, CFACT's Marc Morano asked him about his cheeseburger flights and he countered that he's "now a vegetarian. We'd like to know how Ford got to the COP. We'll wager our family cars and humble appliances that the Hollywood star continues to live a high-carbon, luxury lifestyle that would keep scores of Americans or entire African villages in lighting and refrigeration for ages.
Oh well, it's for us little people to tighten our belts. Our high-flying climate masters need their perks if they are to have the energy to wisely decide how the rest of us should live.
CFACT's investigation into UN burger hypocrisy made a splash in the media and was picked up by Fox News, The Washington Times and more.
So far COP 25 delegates have been far more successful at scoring a burger than advancing the Paris Climate Accord. Left-wing protesters became so incensed when the climate talks stalled that over 200 of them, including the kids from Greta Thunberg's "Fridays for Future" staged a protest where they banged on pots and chanted outside the main plenary session. UN security guards tossed them all out of the COP. (At least it's not us for a change). Our burger scoop and the rest of our action-rich agenda was all officially run through and sanctioned by our UN minders.
