Welcome to this weeks edition of The Weekly Climate! 🎉 The last cow (Oct 4 2020) — Nancy came running toward Catherine. As fast as she could. She always did that when Catherine rang the bell. Catherine hugged Nancy. “Come on Nancy, it’s time to go inside”. Catherine tied a leash to her collar and started to walk. Nancy followed her, as she always did. Catherine had bought the farm from a farmer who after eating cows was banned had to shut down. At that time the farmer had two cows left and Nancy was one of them. She was just a calf then. One of the last of her kind to be born for the purpose of slaughtering her. But the government saved her, by banning sale of all live ruminant food products. Or although the government instituted the ban, it was really the rise of synthetic meat that saved her.
