Green rules!


“Every day we wait is a day our planet gets closer to the point of no-return. New York City’s Green New Deal meets that reality head on,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We are confronting the same interests that created the climate crisis and deepened inequality. There’s no time to waste. We’re taking action now, before it’s too late.”

New York City is not only taking steps to adhere to the Paris Climate pact, it is frontloading the most significant greenhouse gas reductions for the coming decade, before it’s too late. The City is going after the largest source of emissions in New York by mandating that all large existing buildings cut their emissions – a global first. In addition, the Administration will convert government operations to 100 percent clean electricity

The City will end unnecessary purchases of single-use plastic foodware, phase out the purchase of processed meat, and reduce the purchase of beef by 50%

Further in the piece are dozens of city employees and others gushing about this expensive idiocy. Sonny said there was a lot of money in that white powder, but there’s apparently a lot more in this green nonsense. NYC has 0.001 of the world’s population and isn’t even in the top 25 cities globally, so none of what they do there matters a whit.

Oh yeah, they apparently haven’t banned hot dogs yet. Give them time.

    One wonders what Miguel de Cervantes would think of all this tilting at windmills?

    re banned hot dogs

    I don’t have a lot of confidence in Snopes, OTOH, no major outlet has run this story.

    But there is this:

    The theory behind banning hot dogs, though, is similar to the plan, outlined in a national Green New Deal “FAQ” to completely eliminate livestock cultivation: that red meat has an extensive environmental footprint that encompasses everything from methane-producing cattle to the carbon emissions from your backyard grill. The process of raising, handling, packaging, and delivering red meat — and especially processed red meat — is considered by environmentalists as one of the cardinal sins of climate change.
