‘Staggering Disconnect’: Climate Summit Boasts Opulent Beef, Seafood Menu Despite Spearheading Anti-Meat Initiatives

Meat for me, but not for thee!





COP27 VIP Set Menu

World leaders and officials attending the United Nations COP27 climate conference can spend up to $100 per entree to eat red meat, seafood and other gourmet menu items. However, the UN has previously discouraged red meat consumption due to the carbon emissions that beef farming creates.

Delegates who arrive at Egypt’s beachside resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh to discuss ways to mitigate the “climate crisis” are able to enjoy COPGourmet’s $100 Angus beef medallion which is served with mushroom sauce and sauteed potatoes, according to screenshots obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. However, the UN aims to “minimize emissions per calorie” and to reduce meat consumption in order to prevent the planet from overheating, according to a COP27 food security document.

“The menu on offer is yet another example of the staggering disconnect between so-called leaders and the people they represent,” Nathan McGovern, a spokesperson for the animal and climate activist group Animal Rebellion, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It is hypocritical for delegates at COP27 to be dining on the destruction of our natural world, whilst simultaneously claiming to be trying to protect it.”

“It was amusing to hear about how Angus beef and sea bass was being served to certain officials, while at the same time, side events at COP27 were championing the idea of going vegan and eliminating red meat,” Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow President Craig Rucker told the DCNF.

The VIP menu is only available for COP27 attendees who have security clearance to enter the private, “Blue Zone” of the conference. Such attendees can also purchase the $125 “classic cocktail” package to receive unlimited cocktails, foie gras and other savoury as well as sweet snacks for up to 90 minutes.

The UN organizers vowed to make the conference a sustainable and carbon-neutral event to demonstrate their “ambitious aspiration” towards climate action, according to the COP27 official website.

“The conference also had chilly air conditioning, often left its doors wide open to the desert air and featured some 400 private jets flying into a posh Red Sea resort area in a country that gets 90% of its energy from fossil fuels,” Rucker said.

COPGourmet and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    No surprise there, then.

      Who’s going to travel thousands of miles in a private jet for a cheese sandwich? 😒

      • November 18, 2022 9:31 am

        … certainly not for vegan cheese, with no butter.

    Many years ago, before the Iron Curtain had succumbed to tinworm, I travelled a little behind the Iron Curtain, a very enlightening experience.
    One day, when he was sure he couldn’t be overheard, one of the citizens remarked “you can easily tell the Communists, they’re the ones in the big black cars”.
    Plus ça change!

      I spent nearly 2 weeks in May, 1974 on a tour to Leningrad (St. Petersburg once again) and Moscow. You are so correct about the “big black cars”. One of my slides is of those posed outside the party headquarters which was a beautiful church in Leningrad.

      You forgot to mention that each car had a chauffer waiting with it. I believe it was the lovely blue Smolny Cathedral (w/o looking at my slides).

        Kodachrome 64?

      • November 18, 2022 1:47 pm

        Yes, Gamecock, Kodachrome 64.

        When they were going to phase out slides, I purchased a new Kodak Carousel projector.

        I have a number of slide sets from travels and much prefer them to computer stuff. Takes less equipment and more reliable. A few of the sets: USSR, Japan, Thailand, Australia, California Coast, Panama, Brazil, NC/SC Carolina field trips in 1980’s (Congaree Swamp featured); Hawaii.

        My first non-slide set is my trip to Runnymede in 2015 for the 800th Anniversary of the Sealing of Magna Carta, June 15, 2015 as a descendant of 2 (at least) of the Surety Barons: Sir Roger Bigod and his son, Hugh Bigod. My thumbnail picture is from the unveiling of the QEII statue along the Thames the day before the festivities. Our group was invited to attend that and what a day. I ended up using my phone and have a wonderful set of pictures from that whole trip. I have a computer presentation using many of them: “From a Meadow Called Runnymede”.

    Pure bl**dy hypocrisy.

    Do as I say, not as I do. Hypocrites on the taxpayer-funded bandwagon.

    USD 196: I wonder if the Blue Zone allows cameras.
    Pictures of VIPs tucking in a $200 meal plus a $125 classic cocktail package on the front page of major newspapers would be a great symbol of the Climate Cultists.

    ’nuff said.

    So ‘disconnect’ has now replaced ‘blatant hypocrisy’ in the dictionary?

    And I’ll bet most then get the taxpayers to pay for it. We really are docile sheep queuing up for the slaughter.

    These idiots must have airbrushed out the fact that 100’s of millions of bison roaming the plains of North America were producing methane aplenty without any detriment to the climate.

      Yeah, I think this is a good point. What was the original bison population and how does it compare to the number of cows now being farmed?

      Quite a few ruminants roaming around on the African plains too, as I recollect!

    This website claims than in the mid-18th century methane concentrations were around 700 parts per billion. I find myself wondering how this figure was obtained.
    Currently we have the concentration at about 1800 parts per billion – i.e. 1800 molecules in 1,000,000,000 molecules of all other gases (presumably measured dry, as is CO2).
    Looking at it another way, 1.8 molecules in 1,000,000 supposedly plays a worrying part in the regulation of global temperatures.
    Where is the bench (not computer modelled) repeatable experimental evidence that methane at this concentration has any heating effect whatsoever?

      You want “repeatable experimental evidence”?
      You must be a Denier!

        Well, “repeatable experimental evidence” IS a part of the Scientific Method……

    Climate activists around the world should start their own insect food market, buying and selling amongst themselves to show the rest of us how it’s done. However, their insect food factories mustn’t use fossil fuels, they must be run on wind and solar power. There are plenty of rich people on the climate change bandwagon, they could get this done!
