Video: Germany Looking at a Meat Tax to Battle Climate Change

Last week German lawmakers proposed slapping a tax on meat in order to “help” the climate and improve animal welfare.  The new tax would raise the current tax from 7% to the standard 20%.

Environmentally superior Germans point out that the livestock sector is responsible for 14.5% of global greenhouse emissions.  The hope is that the tax will prevent Germans from consuming the offending food items.
