The BBC in full flow this morning. The agenda is writ large

It should come as no surprise since the Carrie Johnson government has an agenda to seriously reduce meat consumption in the UK and free up land for rewilding. And there are plenty of powerful lobby groups and Tory donors who whish to deflect criticism away from their particular carbon polluting businesses to farm livestock.
 
As usual no mention of reducing the military industrial complex (the American military uses as much fuel as the world's 46th largest country). Nor indeed reducing internet usage which according to one source uses up to 6% of the world's electric.

As for it being true or not the BBC is just the state propaganda service (look at the hysterical Covid reporting, alternative views like the Great Barrington declaration were closed down). If the government want it to be true the BBC will make it so.

Whilst at the same time the BBC reporting that the government is determined to continue building 300,000 plus new homes each year as if this has no effect whatever!
Such biased political bull sh!t !!
17% reduction in the eating of meat over the last ten years compared with how many new house built over that same time scale plus additional cars to accommodate migrants to the UK, which is harming the planet more?

Looking at the study (led by a scientist supporting 'the development and testing of behavioural intentions to encourage people to reduce their meat consumption', according to her profile at Oxford Martin School) there appears to be an usually high base in the 2008-09 data especially for women's self reported meat consumption. If one takes the base year instead to 2009-10 the decline is minimal. Would be interesting to know if they have any data points in prior years, otherwise the conclusions may need to be taken with some scepticism.
