So as we look at the aftermath of Paris Climate Agreement, it appears more and more clear that it is more about the optics for certain Europeans than actual substance. It really was sham.
so that is why the treaty is contingent on the Mercosur countries keeping their Paris commitments and hence their REDD+ commitments to enjoy the preference under the trade deal.......
Care to elaborate why the Paris agreement isn´t legally binding and doesn´t have enforcement mechanisms? Was it because no one wanted that, or was it because it was clear, Kerry said so many times, that such a deal would never make it through the Republican Senate majority...... the EU and most others wanted a binding treaty.
We get South America beef in Norway, I find it a bit hit and miss, I’d say about 30% of the beef I’ve bought has turned, when you open the package it’s rotten, so stopped buying it. When it's not rotten its ok, but I prefer to buy fresh Norwegian beef sourced from local farms.
I think all long-traveled meat has that hit and miss "quality", and a tariff barrier makes it worse, as only surplus (=cheap, cheap, cheap) is marketable. You don´t often get corn fed US beef here either, it is almost always a disappointment.....
Meat sold as rotten on any large scale would usually quickly be addressed, and since our noses are incredibly sensitive to the smell of rott, we detect it long before meat actually goes rotten, as our nose is designed to detect what is safe to consume unprocessed. Really rotten meat doesn´t just smell rotten, it makes you wanne puke in an instant ...
