Taxes drive behavior. Cigarettes and alcohol are taxed to discourage their consumption. The Danish Council of Ethics, which reports to the Danish parliament, is recommending that Denmark introduces a beef tax to fight global warming. Globally, food production accounts for up to 29 percent of greenhouse emissions. Cattle are responsible for a huge 10 percent. According to the council, taxing beef could reduce emissions from food by 20 to 35 percent.
