Move over, taxes on carbon and sugar: the global levy that may be next is meat.

Some investors are betting governments around the world will find a way to start taxing meat production as they aim to improve public health and hit emissions targets set in the Paris Climate Agreement. Socially focused investors are starting to push companies to diversify into plant protein, or even suggest livestock producers use a “shadow price” of meat — similar to an internal carbon price — to estimate future costs.

Screw that. Trump ought to tweet THIS out and say 'Look what I saved you from, in pulling out of the Paris Accord.'

How about a tax on stupidity, progressives, liberals and scientists who do agenda driven work.

Countries in the accord and their cuisine:

Germany: Knockwurst, sauerbraten, schnitzel
Poland: Kielbasa, chicken soup
Italy: Every kind of meat you can cook and cover in tomato sauce and cheese
England: Bangers and mash, fish and chips, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, etc.
France: Frog legs
China: BBQ spareribs, Peking Duck
Japan: Sushi

And so on. India is known for vegetarian food, but they eat chicken there. They just don't eat beef. ME countries also have a lot of vegetarian food, but they eat halal meats. The ironic thing would be that if the countries agree to this, the only place they will be able to get authentic ethnic food will be in the USA!
