Kerry responds “not necessarily” after being asked if “Americans have just got to eat less red meat”

Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry was asked by the BBC’s Andrew Marr “Isn’t the brutal truth, Mr Kerry, that Americans have just got to eat less meat?”

Kerry responded “not necessarily,” adding “there is a lot of research being done now that will change both the way meat is produced, cattle are herded and fed. Research is being done that actually reduces the amount of methane.”

Kerry then said “but I guarantee you that the United States of America is not only setting a goal but is moving rapidly on track to reduce all of our emissions, become carbon free in the power sector by 2035 and to do what other countries are doing also, Europe and elsewhere, to move as rapidly as possible to net zero.”

April 26th Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told reporters “there is no effort designed to limit people’s intake of beef coming out of President Biden’s White House or USDA.”

In 2019 while discussing the Green New Deal, AOC said “Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
