‘Climatarian’ Makes New York Times List of Top New Food Words for 2015

Via: http://ecowatch.com/2015/12/22/what-is-a-climatarian/

The New York Times published its list of the top new food words for 2015. Words and phrases that made this year’s list range from “beer o’clock,” one’s personal assessment of the right time of day to start drinking, to “hangry,” the state of being so hungry that you become angry or irritable.

But, the one word most relevant to the environmentally conscious is “climatarian.” The New York Times defines it as “a diet whose primary goal is to reverse climate change. This includes eating locally produced food (to reduce energy spent in transportation), choosing pork and poultry instead of beef and lamb (to limit gas emissions) and using every part of ingredients (apple cores, cheese rinds, etc.) to limit food waste.”

The word gained popularity this year in part because it was promoted by a group calledClimates (yes, the organization’s official name is formally half-bold). They encourage people to “go climatarian” and save a tonne (1.1 short tons) of carbon dioxide equivalent, which includes carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and other greenhouse gases.

Quick! Enact a Carbon Tax! Warmist claims that CO2 will ‘take away’ pecan pie, chocolate, coffee, wine, and bacon; we’ll have to eat crickets – Grist Mag.: ‘Here’s the current list of delicious foods that climate change is going to take away: pecan pie, chocolate, coffee, wine, bacon. Now, a new addition: oysters. …As the climate changes, what we eat will, too. Instead of slurping down oysters, we’ll be crunching on crickets and calling it fancy’

Grist Mag suggests CO2 caused warm weather, which allegedly harmed corn crops, which resulted in less corn for pigs, which resulted in more expensive bacon
