Your Food Needs To Be Put On The Green New Deal Menu

Again, funny how the Green New Deal, like most Democratic proposals, seems to want to be involved in every aspect of our life, eh? And this all requires Big Government to accomplish

Opinion: Put Food on the Green New Deal Menu

Last month, New York City and State approved bold Green New Deal plans that will contribute to reducing greenhouse gases, making buildings and transportation more energy efficient, and creating economic and job opportunities. But by leaving food out of the plans, the city and state missed a chance to amplify and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable, healthier and equitable region.

Food and agriculture are central to realizing the environmental and economic goals of a Green New Deal. Transforming the food system has great potential to sequester carbon, expand well-paid, create clean energy jobs and help reverse the public health crises of food insecurity and diet-related diseases. By adding a focus on food, New York’s Green New Deals also have the potential to engage wider, more diverse constituencies in expanding local democracy and persuading cautious politicians to overcome opposition from industries that oppose modifying the warming status quo.

How could bringing food onto the Green New Deal menu reverse these trends? In the last several decades, public policies such as subsidies for corn and soy; tax breaks for marketing unhealthy food to children; and limited enforcement of rules against misleading or deceptive food advertising to children have enabled food companies to make cheap, industrially produced foods ubiquitous. Of note, the agricultural, food production and marketing practices that contribute to diet-related diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke are the same ones that increase pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from growing and transporting food.

A Green New Deal can limit the power of large, wasteful food corporations and invest in decentralized local and regional, low-carbon food systems. Just as we need to decentralize energy system in the United States to reduce reliance on large oil and gas corporations that have been heavily subsidized by the state, we need decentralized planning and production in our food system.

This continues on and on, but, you get the point. Government interfering with and controlling your life. The only thing they do want complete choice of is abortion on demand (and even there, they want to restrict the pro-life movement).

Achieving the goals of the Green New Deal in New York will require broad based public support. A food-enhanced Green New Deal could expand that support by engaging all New Yorkers who want to leave their children a healthier and more sustainable future. By including food in the vision for a Green New Deal, we have an opportunity to make our city and state a better place to live, work, and eat. And that is something people are willing to fight for.

And what if Citizens reject this? Perhaps they like eating what they want to eat. Hotdogs and pretzels and such from food carts and more. What then, Warmists? Will you force them?

    “What then, Warmists? Will you force them?”

    The radical left does not consider execution “force”. They consider it “decent elimination”. Just as reeducation camps are to gently reeducate those who were not educated correctly and concentration camps are to help people concentrate and there is no such thing as anti-white racism “force” as it were is in the eye of the beholder or perpetrator depending whether or not you are the recipient.

    Trump 2020 don’t let the left force you from your hot dog cart to a kale bar.

    Re-education for the nation. See? Elwood’s plan is afoot!

    “An article in Time Magazine calls for special courses to be introduced in schools to teach kids that mass migration is a positive thing in order to combat the “extremist” view that it isn’t.

    The outlet published an article written by two members of an extremism monitoring group called ISD, which is funded by numerous globalist organizations which all support mass immigration (imagine my shock).

    Those funders include the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Google, Facebook, the European Commission and Open Society Foundations (George Soros).

    The article frets about how, “Popular support for politicians who build their campaigns around anti-migrant and anti-Muslim themes have surged across the Western world” and “theories such as the “great replacement” and “white genocide” have effectively made their ways into societal and political discourse”.

      Kye,

      I thought you never wanted to interact with me again. Yet, you invoke my name, claiming I have a re-education plan.

      Kye’s plan for NuAmerica:

      Shoot all “illegals” on sight.
      Deport all Muslims.
      Deport all “DemComs”.
      Make NuAmerica a Caucasian, conservative, Christian nation by force.

      Did we miss anything?

      Never forget. With conservatives, it is ALWAYS projection.

        First, as always, you lie.

        Shoot all “illegals” on sight.

        No, Shoot all illegals who keep slipping back in and are undiscovered until they commit a crime on sight.

        Deport all Muslims.

        Deport all Moslems. Certainly the crazies.

        Deport all “DemComs”.

        There’s a problem there?

        PS You always bitch about the deficit.

        Off the Hill

        Trump’s proposal to cap some domestic spending was DOA in the Democrat-held House

        We have met the enemy and he is you.

        It’s OK, thought, Trump intends spending cuts in ’21.

    Nah. North Carolina data indicates massive hidden problem nationwideIn North Carolina, during the past 18 months, more than 331 illegal aliens have been charged with 1,172 child rapes and child sexual assaults, according to data collected by an independent researcher.

    Trump 2020 or Ilhan Omar will bring in more child rapists!!!
