The Danish Council on Ethics has published a report called The Ethical Consumer: Climate Damaging
Foods

Fourteen of the Council’s 17 members support a recommendation to
implement a climate tax on beef in Denmark.

Professor Maarten Haajer, who this summer called for a worldwide tax on all meat

“All
of the harmful effects on the environment and on health needs to be priced into
food products.”
