New Zealand Make MOOves On Farm Emissions
Fart Tax introduced to combat emissions from agriculture
What's Going On Here?
A New Zealand climate change group has been tasked with working out how its country's farmers should pay for their emissions.
What Does This Mean?
The likely solution will be a tax on the farmers producing greenhouse gases. That's a big thing in New Zealand as agriculture makes up half of New Zealand's total emissions.
In 2012, the UK imported 86,100 tonnes of lamb, 73 percent of which came from New Zealand. The numbers change from year to year but the UK meat consumer will be impacted if this TAX does come in.
When it comes to climate change, meat just ain't finger licking good - The Colonel has been lying to us! But if we are going carnivore for a special occasion 😘 then the chicken madras trumps the lamb balti! The general rule of thumb for commercial meat emissions:
LOWEST Chicken 🐔 < Pork 🐷 << Beef 🐮 < Lamb 🐏 HIGHEST
