German Government Promotes Nutritional Guidelines …That Protect Climate (And Not Human Health)!

If you need more proof that climate change has taken on cult-like dimensions, then look no further than Germany’s Federal Ministry of Environment (BMU), which delivers it in hardcopy in the form of a cookbook for climate-friendly eating.

Now people should eat in a way that makes the climate healthy and weather better – forget what is really healthy for our bodies! Many experts say the two are not the same.

Despite the latest nutritional studies showing the vast benefits of a diet rich in animal fat, the German BMU (which has no expertise on matters concerning human nutrition) is taking it upon itself to advise people to switch to a potentially ruinous fad diet with the highly dubious claim that it will positively impact the climate and weather in our favor.

Human dietary habits worse than auto, air traffic!

The BMU site writes:

Cooking for climate protection. Very simple and very necessary. The atmosphere is heating up from our dietary habits more than it is from automobile or air traffic. The best ingredients for culinary climate protection are: local organic food, less meat and dairy products – and seasonal fruits and vegetables instead of imported finished products. How this can be done in a tasty way is illustrated by the book with its 55 recipes and many vegetarian and vegan variants. There are also lots of information explaining how we impact the climate with our nutrition, and tips on sustainable grocery shopping. Cook and enjoy.”

Let’s be honest here. Some points have merit, like eating more vegetables, and less highly processed foods. However as mentioned above, recent- cleanly executed scientific studies are showing that meats and animal-based fats, like cheese and butter, are necessary for the healthy development of the human body, and have in fact been the cornerstone of the human diet for some 3 million years. The dietary advice now being promoted by the German BMU is a recipe for mal-nutrition and poorer health.

The timing of the WHO organization recently released report claiming processed meats are cancer-causing and putting them in the same category as tobacco and asbestos should not be wonder. The WHO report was immediately slammed and dismissed from all sides. The aim is to get humans to away from meat, and to switch to insects wit the hope of appeasing the climate gods.

Another interesting aspect is that the promotion of nutritional guidelines and dietary fads (this one put together by a gaggle of activists, no less), is not the responsibility of the Ministry of Environment, but rather instead that of the Germany Ministry Of Agriculture and Nutrition. The BMU is way out of bounds here.

Unfortunately, as is the case with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) the German Ministry Of Agriculture and Nutrition guidelines are outdated by decades as well, and are still promoting the notoriously dangerous high-carb, low-fat diet and continues to villianize foods like butter and eggs.

This is all cult gone amok.

    What is and is not acceptable to eat for the Man Made Global Warming adherent.

    Well. That’s it then, isn’t it. This was the last missing piece.

    It is all a religion.

    1. GP Alexander

      With all respect to the author of the article, I seem to be paraphrasing his original observation. I used the term religion as opposed to cult as religion is usually treated with more credibility than a cult.

      If we were only able to ignore the MMGW Cult as another “waiting for the UFOs” group.

      One question though, if you are a member of the Man Made Global Warming Religion, how do you celebrate Christmas?

      1. DirkH

        First of all, you call it Winterfest, not Christmas. Second – you don’t celebrate anything! Are you mad! You can’t celebrate while humanity is melting the polar caps, killing all Polar Bears! Third, Polar Bears are nice and cuddly and only want to live in peace. Fourth, seals are also nice and cuddly and live in eternal harmony with Polar Bears as long as there is enough ice! Which there isn’t, because meat-eating evil humans melt all the ice by eating meat!

          Based on your description, it seems that I would be quite the apostate as far at the Church of Global Warming is concerned.

          In fact, on a daily basis I take a seal oil supplement, that alone is enough to be excommunicated

          Plenty of published research to support its use including first hand observations (undergrad in Oceanography/ PhD in physiology/ post-doc in nutrition)

          1. DirkH

            I’ve quit those supplements and just started eating Herring, Mackerel, Thuna instead.

            I think I’ll pause when I’m blue in the face.

    Owners should consider doing without, downsizing or even eating their pets to help save the planet, according to a new book.

    Pet dogs as bad for planet as driving 4x4s, book claims

    A medium-sized dog has the same impact as a Toyota Land Cruiser driven 6,000 miles a year, while a cat is equivalent to a Volkswagen Golf.

    But rabbits and chickens are eco-friendly because they provide meat for their owners while a canary or a goldfish has little effect on the environment.

    “Local organic food, less meat and dairy products – and seasonal fruits and vegetables instead of imported finished products.”

    That’s how our grand-grandfathers lived, in 1800s when a life expectancy was 40 years. Let’s rush forward to Middle Ages!

    Greens, I know that there are other factors affecting a life expectancy. Accept that there are other factors than your “climate-friendly NOW!” directive. You don’t have a hunch how complex the world is.

    See in the WSJ (likely need to subscribe):
    The Climate Agenda Behind the Bacon Scare
    The widely publicized warning about meat isn’t about health. It’s about fighting global warming.
    By JULIE KELLY And JEFF STIER

    Behind the Bacon Scare – in the WSJ

    In a few days this may appear in other places, so I put the author’s names above.

    1. GP Alexander

      Ironically, we already kicked that Bacon=Global Warming nonsense football around in these very pages.

      WSJ is late in the game. Would not surprise me if Julie and Jeff are regular visitors of NTZ

    Schellnhuber is becoming more and more removed from reality –

    – regarding the coming climate catastrophe
    – regarding the promise of renewables to meet demands
    – regarding basic economics.

    Indeed, his wished-for outcome is nothing other than economic collapse (without affecting his pension plan, of course).

    This man’s views should be spread wide and heavily panned by all thinking people. His philosophy is indeed a dangerous one — he also has the ear of some of the most powerful politicians on the planet.

    His one correct assessment is that collecting $100Billion for the Green Climate Fund is looking very, very doubtful.

    1. DirkH

      “Schellnhuber is becoming more and more removed from reality ”

      Meaning, he fits right in with Merkel.

  9. Messenger

    I noticed that the Daily Telegraph is doing its bit for this approach to food and climate by having casual references to cooking recipes given for “meat free Mondays” as though this was an accepted practice.
