Meat Taxes Might Be Coming to Save the Planet


A recent UN report declared that humans' consumption of meat and animal byproducts is having a significant negative impact on the Earth's land, which is a critical resource for global food security. One possible solution to reduce our appetite for animal flesh? A meat tax.

As reported by Business Insider, market research company Fitch Solutions recently published a report suggesting that more and more countries could implement taxes on red meat in the near future. A meat tax would fall under the "sin tax" umbrella, joining taxes on things like tobacco, sugar-laden foods, and sodas. Fitch Solutions first discussed the tax in an article called "Sustainability – Drivers And Implications For Agribusiness" earlier this year.
