The radical Socialist/Communist Bernie Sanders has not found a product he would not like to tax and that trend continued when it comes to meat products. Bernie Sanders claimed we need to tax meat products going forward because of climate change.
However, no one explained how taxing meat would save the earth from climate change.
A young uneducated Socialist asked, “As you probably know, animal agriculture is to blame for the majority of climate change and is the leading cause of deforestation, water and air pollution, and biodiversity loss. With that being known, what do you plan on doing to ensure that Americans limit their consumption of animal products? Germany has imposed a meat tax in hopes of limiting this consumption,” she continued. “What are your plans to stop these large corporations from further usurping natural resources and polluting the planet?”
Sanders replied, “All I can say is if we believe, as I do and you do, that climate change is real then we are going to have to tackle it in every single area including agriculture, ok? And in fact, one of the things we want to do with our farmers out there is help them become more aggressive and able to help us combat climate change rather than contribute to it.”
“So we will certainly – you’re right. We’ve got to look at agriculture, we’ve got to look at every cause of the crisis that we face.”
