University in London Bans Burgers to Fight Climate Change

The new head of Goldsmiths University in London, Professor Frances Corner, is determined to make the college carbon neutral by 2025, which means eliminating or offsetting 3.7 million kg of carbon emissions.

To that end, she’s taking drastic measures, including banning the sale of hamburgers, because cows take enormous amounts of water and land to raise, and emit large amounts of methane, which is more hazardous to the climate than carbon.

Corner said:

“Though I have only just arrived at Goldsmiths, it is immediately obvious that our staff and students care passionately about the future of our environment and that they are determined to help deliver the step change we need to cut our carbon footprint drastically and as quickly as possible.

Declaring a climate emergency cannot be empty words.

I truly believe we face a defining moment in global history and Goldsmiths now stands shoulder to shoulder with other organisations willing to call the alarm and take urgent action to cut carbon use.”

In addition to the burger ban, Corner is instituting a 10 pence (10 cent) tax on water bottles and plastic cups.

There’s no word from students on the new policy, but nearby hamburger joints must be thrilled.

  1. JUST IMAGINE the Amount of pollution from Methane and CO2 if Professor Frances Corner and all the staff and students of that indoctrination center called Goldsmiths University in London were to commit suicide.

  2. University in London Bans Burgers to Fight Climate Change. Note: This is the same group that banned Vegan Food to help stop Cruelty to Plants and De-Forestation!

  3. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she wasted her higher education money, how much carbon output and methane gasses released into the atmosphere , if the world would stop FARTING ????

  4. Perhaps this University President needs to read the long standing history that came from similar universities in Britain in that they started recording day time highs only after the ground began to not freeze during the winter months. That occurred around 1857-‘58. That’s when global warming began, it’s also when the mini-ice age came to an end, and the industrial revolution began.
    How about taking notice the lack of a forest in all of the Britain, The trees were cut down centuries ago, and during the age of the Roman Empire, Britain raised sheep and made wool to cloth there own people and ship the fresh meat to the Romans.
    Methane and Carbon dioxide are both terraforming gasses. Turn the coal mines into open pit coal fields and the methane gas can be captured and sold as a fuel. The C02 can be reduces by eliminating the amount of grass lands throughout Britain. That would allow the rain to flow into natural lakes, rather then flowing into the ocean. So universities please correct the madd cow problem as it is occurring throughout Britain and allow your minimum number of beef to become the best in the world rather then the worst.

  5. They better ban all cars, tucks, and buses and any other conveyance from campus too. Otherwise they are just sounding goofy.

  6. Apparently Prof Francis Corner has had a lobotomy and no one told her!
    How can she even get a job as a “professor”! England is lost unfortunately!!
    Seriously…… she is not qualified to teach anyone!! Pm Churchill is not resting easy today!
    England is losing its soverignity a little everyday with the unfettered invasion of Muslims with no acclimation, only demands, crime, no go zones, destruction of English churches, English customs, etc. and this professor is hired to destroy young minds! It’s complete insanity!
    God save the Queen!
