What does this mean? What will be the effect on our food, farming and way of living if we fill the fields with solar panels, trees and wildflowers, instead of animals and crops?

Are extreme policies based on natural or manmade climate change? Does computer modelling actually represent real world outcomes? Are people being fully informed and asked their opinion before life changing actions, potentially irreversible, are undertaken?

City Mayors aim for Zero Meat & Dairy [Note 1]

(See C40 proposed eating plan and land use mapping and dietary issues)

 and image


Zero Meat & Dairy Target 

"31 Current average meat consumption in C40 cities is 58 kg per person, three times the target"

"32 Current average dairy consumption in C40 cities is 155 kg per person, 1.7 times the target" (pg78-91)







  • If "Water vapor accounts for the largest percentage of the greenhouse effect, between 36% and 66% for clear sky conditions and between 66% and 85% when including clouds" (Wiki - 25AUG23) then why is essential farming needed for human health and wellbeing being targeted? E.g. in 1995 it was stated that, "The contribution by cattle to any global warming that may occur in the next 50 to 100 yr has been estimated to be a little less than 2%" (See page 3 1995 and Note 6) Manmade CO2 vs natural CO2 needs to be fully debated and properly understood before life changing policies, laws, etc. are made and enforced. e.g. CO2 Quiz
  • Do our 'leaders'/public representatives really intend us all to become vegans, to stop eating ALL meat and dairy? (NB Vegetarians eat dairy from animals the same as meat eaters)
  • Has it been proven that a pure vegan diet is good for our health?
  • The stated EAT-Lancet study indicates meat and dairy is required (i.e.334g/day or 122kg/yr),  "low amounts of animal source foods... ranges of food intakes, which combined in a diet, would optimize human health" (pg10)
  • So why does C40 Cities/Mayors propose a significantly lower meat and dairy eating to 240g vs 334g per day? [Note 2]

      Why NO MEAT or DAIRY for C40 Mayors' Net Zero proposal for mayors and councils to achieve in the future?

However, the public have a different idea of what they want to eat, "Data from multiple organisations, including the Office for National Statistics (ONS), shows that meat consumption is rising steadily" (Article & 21JUN23)


Telegraph Article - "No meat, no dairy and three outfits a year: Welcome to Sadiq Khan’s plan for London C40, a global group of city mayors chaired by Sadiq Khan, has a radical vision of net zero that critics say will restrict personal choice" (15SEP23) related to C40 Cities document pages 78-91.

Our future seems to be in the hands of government global partnerships rather than through local and national democratic discussion, debate and voting?

Benefits of Dairy


What happens to our health when animals are no longer reared for dairy - cheese, yoghurt, butter, milk? Will we be expected to depend on mineral and vitamin additives to alternative plant-based processed 'milk' (e.g. almond, oat, soy) and 'foods'?

"... we also know that Dairy it's maybe protective against some cancers so there's really consistent evidence that people have higher intakes of dairy have lower risk of colon cancer for example... when we talk about fermented we mean cheese we mean yogurt when we're talking about the non-fermented we mean milk and ...butter... we're talking about fermented dairies these contain probiotic microorganisms that we know now from clinical trials are good for the immune system they have an effect within a few weeks" (12SEP23)

"Our findings point to a need to ensure that consumers are aware that many plant-based milk alternative products in the marketplace today are not nutritionally equivalent to cow's milk," said Johnson" (Article and 24JUL23)

North Somerset Council (NSC) proposes blanket solar and wind development across the district, along with new housing development. What will happen to farm land for meat, vegetables and fruit and our food security? How much District Council public money is being spent on Carbon Net Zero projects, and will they achieve the stated outcomes without affecting our food security?

Why are solar panels, wind turbines and development proposed on current farm and agricultural land? (See NSC proposal) Why is the farmland mapped on the left different to those above?


Why have council farms dwindled and what can be done?

What is happening to local government finances and why are councils struggling? "In recent years, some councils on the brink of financial distress have sought what are known as capitalisation directions from the Government. These give councils special permission to use their capital funds – which could be accrued from selling assets – to top up their spending on services" (19SEP23) See NSC £50million deficit problem below

Energy Crisis


Good God! Is Britain really going to jail people who disagree with net zero? (06SEP23) "...under this new legislation, those who fail to adhere to energy consumption regulations could face imprisonment for up to a year and fines of up to £15,000" See Energy Bill Details e.g. Clauses 109, 196,197, 207 & 240) Parliamentary Voting Outcomes 18OCT23 (PDF)

Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy

"Oil and gas producers in the UK are making extraordinary profits and this is expected to continue. In response, the government is raising the rate of the levy from 25% to 35%, bringing the headline tax rate for the sector to 75%, and extending the duration of the levy. This ensures oil and gas companies that will benefit from the prolonged period of increased prices continue to pay their fair share of tax." (21NOV22)

Water Cremations

With government demands for CO2 reductions there is a move towards Water Cremations (12JAN23) rather than burials and cremations. How does the use of water and adding additional chemicals into the process effect water shortages, water pollution, spread of disease and pathogens, especially if sprayed on crops or fed to animals?

Beware Groupthink

It would appear that even in the light of their quoted EAT-Lancet Study the policy makers (government and the unelected WEF) propose overly strict restrictions in dietary requirements. Where have these dietary proposals been shown to be adequate or optimally healthy for human health? In the interest of true democracy it is essential these issues are raised and openly debated in parliament so that citizens of the UK can ultimately decide how they wish to live their lives and set the scene for future generations.


Thre are at least 12,313 Unitary, County, District, Town and Parish Councils, all with their own approach to Carbon Net Zero, each spending public money in a variety of ways.

"There are 318 principal (unitary, upper and second-tier) councils in England, including 21 county councils, 164 district councils, 131 unitaries and 2 Sui Generis authorities (but not including Wales22 Unitary authorities Scotland32 Unitary authorities Northern Ireland11 Unitary authorities)...Also "There are around 11,930 local councils in the UK, including town, parish, community, neighbourhood and village councils." (LGiU and 08SEP23)

Ask your council - How much public money are they spending on Carbon Net Zero projects, and will they achieve the stated outcomes without affecting our food security? Or is manmade CO2 a drop in the ocean, when compared to Water vapor that accounts for the largest percentage of the greenhouse effect, between 36% and 66% for clear sky conditions and between 66% and 85% when including clouds"? [Note 6]

  • North Somerset Council " predicting a budget gap of £17.2 million in 2024/25, and in subsequent years of £14 million, £9.5 million and £9.9 million — meaning the council would have to find just over £50 million over the next four years" (08SEP23)
  • "Councillor John Crockford-Hawley voted in favour of the measures, but warned the council: “We are being asked to give the section 151 officer and one executive member delegation to commit the council to a potential £5m expenditure — and yet, at the current rate of CO2 reduction in North Somerset, we will be on target to reach net zero in 85 years time... The new measures — which were approved by a majority of councillors at the meeting — give one council officer and executive member the power to submit bids for up to £10m of decarbonisation funding without needing to go through council approval.” (Article & 21SEP23 & 151)

    • The current 2022-23 AGAR Return follows the previous two years, where Bleadon Parish Council (BPC) told residents to take their concerns to the External Auditor via AGAR, rather than answer their questions. BPC’s previous lack of openness and transparency cost the parish council over £10K, with at least 15 resident concerns being wholly or partially upheld, including those relating to non-compliance with regulations and lack of best practice.

Note 1: UK Govt Food Strategies 

  • UK Govt, "In meat, milk, and eggs, the UK produces roughly equivalent volume to what it consumes. In 2020 it produced 61kg of meat, 227L of milk and 172 eggs per person per year ... The UK produces a significant proportion of its other crop needs, including around 60% of sugar beet, 70% of potatoes and 80% of oilseeds... The UK produces over 50% of vegetables consumed domestically, but only 16% of fruit." (16DEC21)

Note 2: Proposed Daily Eating

  • Why do C40 Cities/ Mayors propose reducing dairy eating to zero, when EAT-Lancet suggests a low amount of 250g/day (91kg/yr)?

EAT-Lancet Study 250g/day (91kg/yr) Suggestion



C40 proposal 247g/day (90kg/yr) then zero dairy

"32 Current average dairy consumption in C40 cities is 155 kg[/yr or 425/day] per person, 1.7 times the target" (pg40)

Milk (250g is 250ml BUT average bowl of cereal 125ml, tea 30ml, latte 300ml) e.g.bowl of cereal is half allowance, 8 cups of tea, less than one latte for the day
Cheese e.g. cheese sandwich/toastie is about half daily allowance
Yoghurt (e.g. average small pot 125g) e.g. two pots of yoghurt
Butter how much is used on fresh bread or cooking?
  • Why do C40 Cities/ Mayors propose 44g/day (16kg/yr) of beef OR pork OR lamb OR chicken OR fish then reduce it to zero in the future, when EAT-Lancet suggests a low amount of 71g/day (26kg/yr)?

EAT-Lancet Study 71g/day (26kg/yr) Suggestion



C40 proposal 44g/day (16kg/yr) then zero meat

"31 Current average meat consumption in C40 cities is 58 kg[/yr or 159g/day] per person, three times the target" pg40

Beef (e.g. a quarter pounder burger is 125g/4oz, mince portion is 125g, average steak 225g/8oz, sausage is 50g, bacon 30g) e.g. roughly a third of a quarter pound beef burger per day
Chicken (e.g. average breast is 175g) e.g. less than a quarter of a fillet of chicken for the day
Fish (e.g average fillet of salmon is 200g, tuna serving 100g) e.g. about fifth of a salmon fillet for the day OR a small tin of tuna
  • Where is this in the C40 City/ Mayoral proposal for eggs, when EAT-Lancet suggests a low amount of 13g/day (5kg/yr)?
EAT-Lancet Study 13g/day (5kg/yr) Suggestion C40 proposal of zero in the future
Egg (average weight 50g) None?
  • So why does C40 Cities/Mayors propose a significantly lower meat and dairy eating of 240g/day (106kg/yr) by 2030 instead of 334g/day (122kg/yr) EAT-Lancet) [Note 2]

This all rather puts the Met Office in a bad light." (01JUL23)
  • Article, "In response last month, more than 1,600 scientists, among them two Nobel physics laureates, Clauser and Ivar Giaever of Norway, signed a declaration stating that there is no climate emergency, and that climate advocacy has devolved into mass hysteria. The skeptics say the radical transformation of entire societies is marching forth without a full debate, based on dubious scientific claims amplified by knee-jerk journalism...Many of these climate skeptics reject the optimistic scenarios of economic prosperity promised by advocates of a net-zero world order. They say the global emissions-reduction targets are not achievable on such an accelerated timetable without lowering living standards and unleashing worldwide political unrest." (20SEP23)
