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.
Lots more on the why & how of this #PlanetaryHealthDiet in this meta-thread.

#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

#littleredbook?
Not only does it kill critical thinking & conceptual diversity, before you know it, this will be used by crusaders to shame & blame people that deviate from the norms.

The current morality overdose will suffocate us in the end. All this will not end well. oneplanetnetwork.org/sustainable-li…
And with these people involved... 🤔

Something isn't right.

@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👇
academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/1…
Should have stated *many* vegans and *most* efficiency planners, but I ran out of characters 😄

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. 🤔

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 -😅)

wbcsd.org/Programs/Food-…
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' 👇

#TAX! Here's Davos' #WorldEconomicForum again, suggesting that we should tax meat eaters... 'like smokers' ?!?! What a #GreatReset that'll be! 😬

weforum.org/agenda/2018/01…
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…

A #GreenNewDeal-linked plan of New York’s (#NYC) City Council (& mayor Bill #deBlasio) to halve the red meat supply in municipal buildings & phase out processed meats in schools & hospitals by 2030.

Ehrr... what about the future of New-York hot dogs? 🤔

Previously (read first ), I mentioned the setup & history of a plan for a #GreatFoodTransformation of diets worldwide away from #meat, which is linked to the World Economic Forum's #GreatReset

Let's now look at how fast things are moving already
Thread 👇 Image
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... Image
I already mentioned that this plan has considerable leverage over the new #EU food policy framework (the #GreenDeal) - setting the stage for the interventions favoured by #EAT & #WRI Image

In a previous thread (read first: ), I outlined how the #WorldEconomicForum's #GreatReset & #BuildbackBetter plans also have a #diet part, called the #GreatFoodTransformation.

Let's now look at where it's coming from; planned way BEFORE #COVID19! Thread👇 Image
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?!) Image
The '#GreatFoodTransformation' not only echoes Davos' #GreatReset but also the '#GreatTransformation' proposed in 2011 by the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU): wbgu.de/en/publication… Image

"The First Nations’ [caribou] recovery work reflects the larger movement within their communities to address food sovereignty, cultural survival, & their link to first foods"

"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. Image
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/…

2020: when a greenwashed safari club with a murky past & shady present campaigns for:

- Davos- & WBCSD-approved 'Nature-based' capitalism to control half a planet
- Davos- & WBCSD-approved 'Planetary Diet' science fiction to control the way we eat

#NoGreatReset, thank you much
In case you do not know what the murky & shady part refers to, here's some reading:

UN & elites at World Economic Forum getting ready to introduce #GreatReset in 2021 to overhaul global structures & institutions. Greenwashing to reboot predatory capitalism & centralize governance.

I know this is from Fox, but other media remain silent.

foxbusiness.com/markets/al-gor…
Isn't it puzzling that some policy makers now *encourage* riots & unrest? "Revolutionary changes are always more likely to occur in the midst of chaos"

Goes back to Strong: the UN's oil businessman who first coupled panic & green capitalism to global governance (s: Dewar)

Because its products are often PDO, they can't be tweaked with artificial sweeteners, fake fat, etc. This is what happens to Grana Padano:

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.
