The World Business Council for Sustainable Development @wbcsd is a very #creepy organization. Business people in expensive suits on the one hand, "stewards of God's planet" New Age nutters on the other?

This is what they'd like to have in place by 2030
docs.wbcsd.org/2017/03/Vision…
But it gets more freaky still: for 2030, the WBCSD also expects widespread use of "millions of eyes" to monitor compliance with the sustainable development goals.

#BigBrother watching over your Planetary Health...
Forget national sovereignty & governments - NGOs will be designing our public decisions. 10-50 million of them. 🤔
But don't fear, there will also be "some sort of Global Issues Forum" - what could go wrong?
And, fortunately, we'll have #celebrities to put us on the right track of eco-lifestyles. And we'll all be "service-purchasing" "One World People and Planet" kind of "empowered" yada yada ...
On the way, we'll make loads of $$$ thanks to the #FinancializationOfNature #NewDealForNature
And they have only the best planned for your future diets as well... THREAD 👇

No wonder WBCSD is one of the most central players in both the #GreatFoodTransformation and the World Economic Forum's #GreatReset

@ryankatzrosene criticizing the New Narrative “Ditch red meat & dairy, & don’t bother with local food”: canadianfoodstudies.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/cfs/…

Excellent read, in defense of contextual, community-centered approaches to food instead of top-down, reductionist 'efficiency' planning. #Antifragile
"To assert that the localized cultural context of food is inconsequential to health & sustainability is to follow in the footsteps of a colonial mindset" 💯!!

'Efficiency' planners pooh-pooh this as romanticism. So do vegans. From my debate with Barnard👇

Should have stated *many* vegans and *most* efficiency planners, but I ran out of characters 😄

How to even start making sense of this? The weirdest scheme proposed by the FReSH/WBCSD food multinationals

"World" should eat less salt, but single continents can also have more?😬 And that's a lot #nuts btw! (up to 2400% increase for Latin America -😅)

From the same document, a case study: Kellogg's fake meat burger. Claiming that plant-based is "better for people and planet" and that the main barrier is prejudice because people think it "will not taste as good" ???
Nah, reason why most don't want this stuff is probably because the ingredients look like this. I don't see a lot of "plants" here that could be "good for people & planet"? Any plants at all? Only extracts & additives.

And I doubt that this is a good basis for tasting like beef.

#EUGreenDeal/#farmtofork-type policies risk

- diminishing farmer competitiveness in domestic & export markets
- driving up worldwide food prices & reducing societal welfare
- increasing # of food-insecure people in most vulnerable regions

agri-pulse.com/ext/resources/… h/t @drdairy50
"declines in production & trade, coupled with the projected increases in food commodity prices, would significantly reduce the EU’s GDP, especially if adoption was limited to the EU. In that case, the EU’s decline in GDP would represent 76% of the decline in the worldwide GDP"
"By 2030, the number of food-insecure people in the case of EU-only adoption would increase by an additional 22 million more than projected without the EC’s proposed Strategies. The number would climb to 103 million under the middle scenario & 185 million under global adoption"

Previously, I linked #BuildBackBetter & the #GreatReset to the #MauriceStrong network (mid-1970s but kicking off with the 1992 UN #EarthSummit in Rio). I also linked Strong to the #Rockefeller clan. We may have to go a bit further back in time.

Thread 👇
In 1972, The #ClubofRome published its '#LimitsToGrowth', using simulations to describe the impact of resource depletion on #economic growth. The Club was founded in 1968 by David #Rockefeller, the industrialist Aurelio Peccei & Alexander King.
Its computer-generated models of #doom were designed to impress but were based on simplistic ideas & dubious assumptions. The report, nonetheless, remains influential & illustrates the #Rockefeller obsession with population growth & #resource control

- 1% of world population emits 50% of CO2 from commercial aviation
- Private air travel can amount to 7,500 t CO2/y
- Super emitters may contribute to global warming at a rate 225,000x (!) higher than the global poor
Reminds me of this study looking into the air travel emissions of celebrities... The virtue signalling of Oprah suddenly looked a bit silly. sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
On a similar note: the introduction of the Impossible burger on Air New Zealand business class flights between Auckland and Los Angeles. cnbc.com/2018/08/09/air…

META-THREAD exploring the #GreatFoodTransformation toward a (semi-vegetarian) #PlanetaryHealthDiet designed by the #EATLancet Commission.

It is essentially the dietary part of the World Economic Forum's #GreatReset, branded as a #FoodCanFixIt-path to the #UnitedNations' #SDGs 👇 Image
This first thread demonstrates how the core organization (#EAT) portrays itself as a 'Davos for Food' & connects to major industrial, financial & geopolitical platforms. Its model: public-private partnerships (#PPP), business models & #greenwashing

Next, I'm outlining how all this isn't new. This is not so much a #GreatReset as a #GreatAcceleration (it certainly isn't about #COVID) The dynamic started in the 1970s with #MauriceStrong's $$$ model for 'sustainable development' & 'global governance' 👇
