It’s Not Just Travel: The Green New Deal Also Wants To Control What You Eat!
About twenty five or so years ago there was this sci-fi show on TV for a brief time where people would travel to different alternative realities in this relatively near future of about fifty year or so.
One of them, the group of time travelers had to travel to somewhere in the Midwest where they stopped at what looked like a diner and then the strangest thing happened.
One of the guy ordered a burger and fries and the waiter asked him for his fried in oil license.
He looked at him like he had three heads and then the guy said that only certain people were allowed to eat fried foods and that he didn’t have his license.
Pretty soon, if someone like AOC got her way we wouldn’t be too far off from requiring licenses to eat hamburgers.
The Green New Deal isn’t just a climate change manifesto targeting U.S. energy production, it also looks to drastically change how food is produced and, ultimately, what Americans eat.
“I think it’s pretty clear they want to change people’s consumption habits,” Nic Loris, an energy economist at the conservative Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey introduced highly anticipated Green New Deal bills in early February, calling for “net-zero” greenhouse gas emissions within 10 years through a radical transformation of America.
The bills also call for a slew of new social justice and welfare programs totally unrelated to global warming.
The original “frequently asked questions” material about the Green New Deal contained a reference to “farty cows” THAT sent ranchers into a panic, fearing Democrats were taking aim at their livelihoods.
Environmentalists have targeted the beef industry for years, and concern over methane only gave activists more ammunition.
“Livestock will be banned,” Wyoming GOP Sen. John Barrasso, who represents lots of cattle ranchers, warned on the Senate floor after the Green New Deal was introduced.
“Say goodbye to dairy, to beef, to family farms, to ranches.”
