In an article entitled
The Planet On The Plate :
Why Epicurious Left Beef Behind
Conde' Nast has announced the abolition of beef. The iconic publishing house has erased all things bovine from the homepage, Instagram feeds, recipes, articles and newsletters of its culinary flagship, Epicurious.
Few are surprised-- half the hot air in Salon and Slate is eructed by vegans who believe what they read in Vogue and Vanity Fair, journals whose last civilized Editors have been devoured by Woke Twitter mobs like so many at The Paris Review and The Nation before them.
Global greenhouse emissions used to come mainly from Murdoch newspaper readers, but it is an obscene fact of Anthropocene life that hive magazine subscribers are playing catch-up: the methane from composting a single issue of Vogue inflicts 22 times more climate forcing than using the Sunday New York Times to light charcoal.
It is the height of hypocrisy for the authors to deny their campaign to reify Vegan rhetoric as Hamburger Hate Speech:
Some people might assume that this decision signals... we hate hamburgers (we don’t!). Instead... We think of this decision as not anti-beef but rather pro-planet...every time you abstain from beef... you send a signalIf we don’t, we’ll end up with no planet at all."
To that end Conde' Nast should declare victory in the war on meat, and move on to an intersectional crusade to end the horror of yeast-enslaving climate deniers touting bread stuffed with CO2 on The British Baking Show.
