NYC’s Nanny State Strikes Again, This Time They Are Coming For Hamburgers and Hot Dogs

Published

According to Breitbart News, New York City’s recently passed “Green New Deal” will reduce the amount of red meat served in city-run facilities by half.

This program is being conducted in the name of battling climate change.

This “Green New Deal” is different from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal at the federal level.

This local Green New Deal will slowly reduce the purchase of red meat in public schools, hospitals, and correctional facilities by 2040. The end goal is to cut meat purchases by 50 percent. The total costs of this program are estimated to be around $14 billion.

Through its passage of this iteration of the Green New Deal, New York is the first city in the world to enact this kind of measure.

The municipal Green New Deal comes right after New York City’s announcement to expand “Meatless Monday” to all public schools in the area starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

Despite being separate legislation from Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, both proposals share an emphasis on reducing meat consumption.

A divided Congress and a Republican controlled White House makes it next to impossible to pass the Green New Deal at the federal level for the time being.

As a result, climate change alarmists are now taking a page from the gun control movement’s playbook.

They recognize that they can’t get their legislation passed at the federal level, so they’ll work from the bottom up in municipalities and state legislatures.

However, the conversation on the Green New Deal is far from finished.

BLP covered Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’ Rourke’s recent endorsement of the Green New Deal, in which he urged Americans to make sacrifices that were reminiscent to those of WWII.

As the Democratic Party goes further Left, the Green New Deal will likely be a major litmus test issue for future candidates.
