Germany: the land of 8 million tons meat!

 

German Development Minister Gerd Müller returns to Germany on Sunday after a week’s state visit to Brazil and complains that the rainforest is being cut down!!

Clearcutting: According to the Brazilian space research institute INPE alone in June 2019, 920 square kilometers of Amazon rainforest were destroyed. This is an increase of 88 percent over June 2018

His mission was to further develop the cooperation projects, in particular for the protection of the rainforest, the indigenous population and the Amazon Fund.
He says in the media: “I expect more engagement in the Amazon (!!!)

 

Why does he say it in the media and not his colleague, Minister and lobbyist of Agriculture, Julia Klöckner?

It is well known that Germany not only supplies Brazil with dangerous pesticides, which are banned even in the EU, but is also responsible for cutting down the Amazon in Brazil.

Germany is not only one of the largest milk producers, but also one of the largest meat producers in the world. Subsidized with tax money!

Germany produces 8 million tons of meat every year! In order to be able to produce that amount of meat at all, it needs food for the animals.

 

Germany imports most of the soya from Latin America. Incidentally, the most important supplier of beef to the EU is Argentina. To be able to produce this amount of soy, forests are cleared and burned.

An extraordinary ecosystem with a high biodiversity disappears.

 

In 2016, this was about 2.9 million tonnes of soy and soy products.

This soya is used by food and meat processors and is used for the rearing of chickens, pigs and cattle or for the production of eggs and dairy products, which are sold in many German supermarkets and restaurants.

So if the topic of Amazon, climate change or CO2 is discussed, why is the issue of factory farming not mentioned?

Animal products are associated with high greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and inefficient land use!

Cheap meat, milk and eggs can only be produced with cheap soybeans, which, however, cost the countries of origin expensive: Deforested rainforests, destroyed environment, poisoning of humans and animals are the result.

My comment: The solution would be a Germanexit.

Only incompetent and irresponsible politicians have Germany.

We are dealing with a ruling clique, with corrupt oligarchs who are at least interested in the rights of animals and the rescue of the climate.
Everywhere scandals and manure stands in slaughterhouses we read lately.

And instead of finally abolishing factory farming or at least punishing criminal slaughterhouse operators, the slaughterhouse’s girlfriend, Agriculture Minister Klöckner, wants stricter penalties for activists exposing these crimes.

No more subsidies for the meat.
Meat consumption must be private, as well as smoking.
This state-subsidized factory farming must cost as much as the damage it does.
I consider it a political prostitution to subsidize meat.

My best regards to all, Venus
