Former President Barack Obama is back (unfortunately) and up to his old tricks.
In his $3 million speech at the “Seeds & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan, Italy, on Tuesday, the former president wasted no time chastising Americans for how much food they wasted.
He specifically pointed out that meat eaters were contributing to climate change.
In a question and answer segment after his speech with his former chef Sam Kass, Obama explained the issue had to do with cows, claiming that people don’t realize how much cows contribute to global pollution through the amount of methane gas they produce.
As a solution, Obama suggested smaller servings of steaks and alternative, more efficient ways to produce protein.
I don’t know about you, but creating more efficient ways to produce protein sounds like something nobody would want to eat. But it does sound like something that might make it onto former first lady Michelle Obama’s sick school lunch program.
