CLIMATE CRAZY: UNIVERSITY BANS BURGERS TO SAVE PLANET… GORE: ‘Point of No Return’.

Beef burgers have been banned by a university as part of efforts to tackle the climate emergency.

Goldsmiths, University of London said it is to remove all beef products from sale from next month as the institution attempts to become carbon neutral by 2025.

Students will also face a 10p levy on bottles of water and single-use plastic cups when the academic year starts to discourage use of the products.

The college’s new Warden, Professor Frances Corner, said staff and students "care passionately about the future of our environment" and that "declaring a climate emergency cannot be empty words".

But the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) told PA the move was "an overly simplistic approach" and said there was a "lack of understanding or recognition between British beef and beef produced elsewhere".
