Do you love red meat? Even if you don’t, Readers Digest notes that 16 percent of Americans say steak is their favorite food. An impressive 13 percent say hamburgers are their favorite. Tacos, which often include steak and hamburger, come in at 11 percent. Pasta, which often includes meat, is listed at 11 percent. In short, America runs on red meat — but Joe Biden wants to take that away.
Joe Biden intends to destroy the American economy and way of life in one fell swoop with his agenda. The Daily Mail reports that Biden’s climate plan intends to slash greenhouse emissions by up to 52 percent by 2030 with zero emissions by 2050. That sounds great, you might say. But what is the cost? As you might expect, it’s high. The Daily Mail reports that Biden’s plan will force every American to buy a $55,000 electric car, install a new $5,700 electric heat pump in their homes, and get ready to survive on 4 pounds of red meat a year:
Americans may have to cut their red meat consumption by a whopping 90 percent and cut their consumption of other animal based foods in half.
Gradually making those changes by 2030 could see diet-related greenhouse gas emissions reduced by 50 percent, according to a study by Michigan University’s Center for Sustainable Systems.
To do that, it would require Americans to only consume about four pounds of red meat per year, or 0.18 ounces per day.
It equates to consuming roughly one average sized burger per month.
All in all, Biden’s plan is estimated to cost American taxpayers around $3,500 per year — each. David Williams, president of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, calls the Biden plan a “multi-trillion dollar corporate welfare giveaway.”
“Strict climate mandates/targets will disproportionately hurt lower and middle income citizens who will be forced to pay higher electricity bills,” he says.
Despite the cost to Americans, Biden says, “Time is short, but I believe we can do this. And I believe that we will do.” Biden may have his plans, but the American people will not stand for this.
