Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Fox News Spread Lie That Biden Will Ban Hamburgers to Cut Emissions

Republicans, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and Fox News have been spreading a lie that President Joe Biden will ban or limit hamburgers as part of his plan to but greenhouse emissions by 50 to 52 percent over the next decade to reduce global climate change.

Republicans have been referring to bizarre speculations written by Emily Crane of the Daily Mail, which is best known for its racist attacks against Meghan Markle.

The Washington Post notes the claim is not true:

But Biden’s plan doesn’t include any call to limit meat-eating. Instead, conservative ire was sparked by a Daily Mail article that baselessly speculated about measures that could accomplish Biden’s goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030.
