New York sues world’s largest beef producer over climate claims



New York’s Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against JBS, the world’s largest beef producer, accusing the company of deceiving consumers about its environmental impact to boost sales.

Attorney General Letitia James alleged that JBS USA Food Co, the American unit of the Brazilian meatpacking giant, lacks a viable plan to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, rendering its stated commitment misleading.

James claimed that JBS’ “Net Zero by 2040” pledge failed to account for the majority of greenhouse gas emissions from its supply chain, including those associated with deforestation in the Amazon.

She argued that the company’s intention to increase production would exacerbate its carbon footprint, surpassing greenhouse gas emissions levels that had already exceeded those of Ireland by 2021.

“Families are increasingly willing to invest more in products from environmentally responsible brands,” James stated. “JBS USA’s alleged greenwashing exploits the trust and wallets of everyday Americans, promising a healthier planet for future generations while allegedly failing to deliver.”

State laws

The lawsuit, filed in a New York state court in Manhattan, seeks a $5,000 civil fine per violation of state business laws and aims to recover any unjust gains obtained through false sustainability claims.

JBS, whose businesses include Pilgrim’s Pride, one of the largest U.S. chicken producers, issued a statement expressing disagreement with the lawsuit.

The company affirmed its commitment to collaborating with farmers, ranchers, and others to achieve a more sustainable future for agriculture, reducing resource usage and environmental impact.

With approximately $53.5 billion in revenue generated during the first nine months of 2023, JBS derives about 59% of its revenue from North and Central America.

The company’s shares trade in Brazil, although it has been exploring the possibility of listing its shares in the United States.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?



Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns



As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.
