(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Climate alarmists and activists are pushing for new regulations after a study purported to find that putting climate impact warnings on fast food menus caused fewer people to buy beef products and more people to buy salads, chicken, and fish.
Researchers put the “low climate impact” and “high climate impact” warning labels in a trial with 5,000 participants, and they published these results in JAMA Network Open.
The negative label had a greater impact on choices than the positive label when compared to a control group. The high climate impact label caused 25% fewer customers to buy beef, while the low climate impact label only caused 10% more customers to buy salads.
“We found that labelling red meat items with negatively framed, red high–climate impact labels was more effective at increasing sustainable selections than labelling non–red meat items with positively framed, green low–climate impact labels,’ said Julia Wolfson, a professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health who authored the study.
The study showed that climate change alarmists can get the best results by pushing guilt and fear rather than by promoting so-called sustainable products.
The low-climate impact label stated that the “item is environmentally sustainable. It has low greenhouse gas emissions and a low contribution to climate change.’
The researchers even convinced participants that the low-climate impact options, like salad and chicken, were better options for their health, even though all fast food items contain toxic ingredients, like inflammation-causing seed oils, and non-food additives, fillers and flavor stimulants.
The study relied on the idea that methane from beef production will harm the planet, while soy and corn monocropping will heal the planet or at least slow climate change.
But the researchers ignored the fact that soy and corn products deplete the top soil, lack essential nutrients, and cause obesity and heart disease, while animal husbandry regenerates the top soil and creates a nutrient-dense product.
