Plant-based alternatives to beef will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but they could disrupt the agricultural workforce, threatening more than 1.5 million industry jobs.

Not the ag jobs they care about. The meat gigacorporations profits are being threatened.

I still remember when Hillary Clinton told West Virginians that coal was dying and it was time to figure out what was next for coal country. Donald Trump promised coal the world. West Virginians went on to vote for Trump over Clinton, 68% to 26%. Coal is still dying, fortunately. It’s always disappointing to see people vote in a way that tries to press everyone else to support an obsolete job.
