I understand the motivation to try to reduce emissions wherever it is practical to do so in any industry, but surely when it comes to quality of life, trying to make really deep cuts by drastically changing diet isn't really a good way to go?

Wouldn't we be better off squarely focusing on key industries - transport, power generation, construction, heavy industry, etc, rather than making people miserable by foisting lots and lots of change upon peoples' diet?

Food, water, and housing are three things that are highly personal, with loads of subjective aspects and I'd hate to see e.g. government boldly intrude in this sphere beyond cutting egregious waste and a few worst practices. Maybe some tinkering around the edges is OK but the quality of life cost will rise dramatically with every few % you try to cut beyond the low hanging fruit.
