[Middle Column] Economic chaos is GOOD?! NYT column praises inflation for its ability ‘to drive welcome change for the planet’ – ‘Adjust what we eat to save both our pocketbooks & our planet’

Climate Depot's Marc Morano: The New York Times seems bent on updating Gordon Gekko's phrase from the 1987 film Wall Street: Chaos, for lack of a better word, is GOOD.


Culture & lifestyle journalist Annaliese Griffin writing in the New York Times: "Inflation has the potential to drive welcome change for the planet if Americans think differently about the way they eat...We could adjust what we eat to save both our pocketbooks and our planet." 

"Climate change has motivated some to eat less resource-intensive meat and more vegetables, grains and legumes, but this movement has not reached the scale necessary to bring needed change — yet...2021 study in Nature found that animal products produce greenhouse gases at twice the rate of foods from plants. We should be paying attention to every ton of carbon dioxide that goes into the atmosphere — the same way shoppers are watching the cost of every addition to their grocery carts." ... 

"Inflation resulting from the cost of fuel and feed, coupled with supply chain slowdowns, may make meat substitutes more affordable relative to traditional, factory-farmed meats. ... Historically, cost has been a powerful force that has changed Americans’ diets."
