Humans are omnivores. Eating along an animal/plant gradient, with animal foods at 20-90% of the energy intake of hunter gatherer communities. The #PlanetaryHealthDiet (dietary part of #TheGreatReset), brings it down to levels unknown in ancestral models. With red meat at 1% 🧐
100% plants also allowed. Populations that are situated in the proposed range do exist, however. But they're also characterized by high levels of stunting in infants & children. Correlation >< causation, sure. But still looks like a dangerous experiment. Don't let them fool you.
#TheGreatReset's "stakeholder capitalism is a betrayal of democracy  to support an agenda influenced by a cabal of activists, NGOs, representatives of the “international community,” & politicians too arrogant to go through the usual legislative process" nationalreview.com/2020/11/the-gr…
"expect a future of controls & constraints  It is a picture of a suffocating, joyless society where enterprise is harnessed, the talk is all of “solidarity” & — this will sound familiar — the individual does not get much of a look in"
"The Great Reset is being orchestrated in plain sight, and not by a shadowy group of plotters. But to accept that is not to deny that it may be consequential."
Grumpy me again, but I'm very suspicious about "Goodlife Goals-The Manual" Looks a lot like outsourcing parental education to a centralized planning committee, deciding what's best for us. Particularly so when there is a "World Business Council" (@wbcsd) involved
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?
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.
"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"
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
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' 👇
The idea is also spread by C. Figueres, a main driving force behind the Paris climate agreement & member of the Board of.... #WRI 🤔 The meat tax idea is further amplified by #EAT member Springmann who wrote a specific study on it: journals.plos.org/plosone/articl…
Let's now look at how fast things are moving already
As a reminder: the #EATLancet Commission behind this plan advocates "hard policy interventions", because the public would otherwise reject its ideas. Also, social engineering is being deployed by its partner (WRI), based on the following strategies...
Let's now look at where it's coming from; planned way BEFORE #COVID19! Thread👇
The #EAT foundation -calling itself 'a Davos for Food'- has designed a #GreatFoodTransformation compaign to put the world on a so-called #PlanetaryHealthDiet, which is a semi-vegetarian diet (vegan also allowed) looking like 👇 (note that one can have more sugar than beef?!)
"Getting fresh & healthy food through the colonial food system is challenging & expensive, & yet all around them, healthy, fresh traditional foods abound"
"Members of both Nations point to the physical, cultural, and spiritual health benefits of eating moose, caribou, saskatoon and other berries, and many other plants, which provided sustenance for them for hundreds of generations."
The cover of @TIME: the #GreatReset is coming. Swallow the pill, folks, for your own good. The #Davos aristocracy at @wef wants the best for you & is so kind to reset your lives in 2021. No need for democratic consultation, which would but slow down the process of your salvation.
Relax! The founder of @wef, Klaus Schwab, has described 'stakeholder capitalism' as his preferred model, positioning 'private corporations as trustees of society' to 'address social and environmental challenges'. time.com/5742066/klaus-…
In 2019, WEF entered into a partnership with the United Nations to accelerate the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (#sustainabledevelopmentgoals) Its plan is to shape policy proposals through a Fourth Industrial Revolution using the 'URGENCY' credo. weforum.org/press/2019/06/…
I can hardly imagine a more dystopian 'future of food' than the one advocated by the @RethinkX consortium, focusing "primarily on market forces" and "technology-driven disruption".
@rethinkx Food-as-software. This must be the saddest approach to food production and consumption I've ever come across.
@rethinkx Forget about your past food experiences & what they meant to you and your dear ones. This 👇 is how RethinkX wishes to obliterate #farming and put biotechnology & software companies in charge of what you eat.
