Green New Deal Looks To Control What You Eat

The supporters of the Green New Deal keep telling us that the resolution is all about protecting the environment and saving the planet from having a fever. Funny how it seems to control so much of our personal lives, including what we eat

THE GREEN NEW DEAL ISN’T JUST ABOUT ENERGY, IT’S ALSO ABOUT CONTROLLING WHAT AMERICANS EAT

The Green New Deal isn’t just a climate change manifesto targeting U.S. energy, 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 accompanying FAQ’s reference to eliminating “farty cows” 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.

“Farty” was eventually deleted — in fact, most of the methane cows emit is from burping, not farting. The entire gaffe-riddled FAQ was eventually taken offline by Ocasio-Cortez’s staff amid the ridicule.

Just because it was removed doesn’t mean that is not where they want to go with it. Remember, it wants to “work collaboratively with farmers and ranchers … to remove pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector as much as is technologically feasible.” This means “government telling ranchers and farmers how to operate and what they can raise and grow.”

Cows and other ruminant animals are a major source of methane — a byproduct of their unique digestive system. Livestock and their manure cause about 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. agricultural sector, according to Breakthrough’s senior agricultural analyst Dan Blaustein-Rejto.

So any effort to cut U.S. agriculture emissions would necessitate dealing with cattle and dairy operations. With Ocasio-Cortez claiming humanity only had 12 years before catastrophe, what wouldn’t a concerned climate activist be willing to do? (snip)

In fact, the 2018 United Nations report behind Ocasio-Cortez’s 12-year-to-apocalypse deadline said “dietary shifts away from emissions-intensive livestock products” as one of the societal changes needed to keep future warming under 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100.

Remember, there is a big push by Warmists to get meat out of our diets. They’re constantly yammering on about this, anywhere from forcing people to go meatless at least a day or two a week to simply forcing everyone to be vegetarian.

The resolution calls for “supporting family farming,” “investing in sustainable farming and land use practices that increase soil health” and “building a more sustainable food system that ensures universal access to healthy food.”

This is the government controlling all forms of food production and distribution. This is what the far left Modern Socialists want: government control of everything. Surprisingly, they never think that these policies will hit them in their own lives.

    So what they wrote in the document is not really what they meant? Based on…..?

    We fully understand that conservatives disagree with any law or policy designed to benefit the common good – environmental policies, worker safety, pollution controls, minimum wage, progessive taxation, zoning laws, air and water pollution restrictions, etc etc.

      What they write is never what they mean. And it’s based on hard, cold experience.

      Your little voices are piad to piost Commie lies. And the stuff you list rarely, if ever, benefits the common good.

      Based on a hundred years of lies. Based on the tens of millions of murdered victims of this philosophy of greed and jealousy. Based on the visible evidence of every nation that tried it from Russia to Venezuela. Based on every city and state in America that has been led to bankruptcy by Democrats over the last six decades.

      And based on the fact that every word they speak is nothing but lies and displayed by their unwillingness to practice what they preach.

    The troll speaks.

    We understand that working collaboratively means taking over ranches and farms and dictating what you can and cant grow based upon the needs of the collective.

    It is communist speak. Jethro is a communist. Elwood P. Dowd has now got his new marching orders from Putin.

    The very sentence WORK COLLABORATIVELY with farmers and ranchers is nothing more than government mandating.

    II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Specter of Communism with a Manifesto of the party itself.”
    ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

    THE GREEN NEW DEAL by AOC and the leftist progressives.

    Attacking farming and ranching under the guise of AGW The NEW GREEN DEAL LAYS OUT:

    “The bourgeoisie cannot exist without constantly revolutionizing the instruments of production, and thereby the relations of production, and with them the whole relations of society.Karl Marx

    We see the need to revolutionize production. The production in this case relates to everything from making cars and windows to farming and ranching ALL IN THE NAME OF AGW.

    ANYONE WHO BELIEVES AGW IS NOT A COMMUNIST WORLD PLOT TO DESTROY THE WEST IS INSANE. Literally insane.

    “The bourgeoisie, by the rapid improvement of all instruments of production, by the immensely facilitated means of communication, draws all, even the most barbarian, nations into civilization. The cheap prices of its commodities are the heavy artillery with which it batters down all Chinese walls, with which it forces the barbarians’ intensely obstinate hatred of foreigners to capitulate. It compels all nations, on pain of extinction, to adopt the bourgeois mode of production; it compels them to introduce what it calls civilization into their midst, i.e., to become bourgeois themselves. In one word, it creates a world after its own image.”

    The coup da gra and the RED NEW DEALS FUNDAMENTAL THESIS CAN BE SEEN IN THE ABOVE QUOTE. A simple translation? Sure. The world sucks and all means of production NEED TO BE DISMANTLED and changed fundamentally. Remember Obama’s speech’s of fundamentally changing AMERICA?

    The Democratic party is NOW FULL BLOWN COMMUNISTS with JETHRO and ELWOOD and whatever other trolling names he uses as their active cheer leader bought and paid for by whomever. He is even starting to use the COLLECTIVE >>>>>>>>>>>WE<<<<<<<<<<<< now.

    This right here is a lie. The right does not disagree with these things at all. but if you claim it often enough it must be the truth. You are a liar. Every word from your mouth is propaganda and falsehoods, distortions and misdirections.

    the Right is not opposed to any of the above. What we are opposed to is the over reach of government which you and your communist buddies DEMAND in order to make ME fully comply with what YOU believe is right. The left are bullies who use the rule of law and the government to do their bidding, no differently than the communists use their own government to mandate and dictate to the masses what they will and will not do.

    Anyone who buys this nonsense is pure and simply STUPID. COMMUNISM has failed in every instance in every country ever tried. Even Russia today is an authoritarian hybrid capitalist society having collapsed under the pure stupidity of Communism.

    CHINA has emerged from its shell of communist repression of its citizens to now building sky scrapers and encouraging the ownership of small businesses while retaining the severe form or Authoritarianism of its predecessors.

    Communism is a lie. The democratic party are communists. They lie. They deceive. They use government paid scientitsts to cook the science and come up with phony charts to make you believe the world is warming and were all gonna die.

    AOC…WERE ALL GONNA DIE IN 12 YEARS. OH WAIT HERES MY GREEN NEW DEAL TO SAVE US ALL.
