U.S. Cities Participating in Program to Eliminate Private Transportation and Dairy, Meat Consumption by 2030

U.S. Cities Participating in Program to Eliminate Private Transportation and Dairy, Meat Consumption by 2030

Insanity. Move away from the big cities.

Two cities in Texas want to eliminate dairy and meat consumption by 2030.

Texas. I’m laughing.

Okay, yeah, it’s Austin and Houston, but still. El-oh-El. It also makes me happier that I chose Oklahoma City over Houston.

C40 is an emissions-cutting program consisting of 100 mayors around the world to combat the climate crisis!

The other cities in America include your usual suspects, like Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, New York City, and San Francisco.

We’re all going to die, you guys.

Texas Scorecard pointed out the dietary restrictions in the 2019 report. The “ambitious target” is to stop eating meat and dairy by 2030. The “progressive target” is 16kg (35 lbs) of meat and 90kg (25 gallons) of dairy per person per year.

Good news, Houstonians. As a former vegetarian I can tell you the city has a lot of veggie friendly places to eat! You’re in luck!

It gets worse.

Private transportation! It’s evil, you guys.

The “ambitious target” is ZERO private cars by 2030. The “progressive target” is 190 vehicles per 1,000 people.

What a shock. Bloomberg Philanthropies is a strategic funder of C40. Yes, that means former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a hefty investor.

Ah, there it is. Open Society Foundation is another major funder. I knew George Soros had to have a connection to this nonsense.

Houston is one of the fattest cities in America. Anyone who tries to force those people to eat vegetarian will be voted right out of office.

    Does the ban include chicken?

    How do you know? Does that include you?

    When Katrina hit tens of thousands refugees moved to Houston amd never went back and we had about 5,000 in Austin.
    I did several days doing volunteer work at the Civic Center and I can tell you , these people were not vegetarian and were not going back

    The Hispanics are prone to obesity. Fully one third of Hispanics admitted to emergency rooms in CA, for whatever unrelated reason, are diagnosed with diabetes.

    It has something to do with the relatively modern diet that the White man brought to the New World. The Mexicans and Central Americans have not had enough time in the evolutionary sense to adapt. Very much like Indians and firewater.

      They are sugar freaks lots of lard in cooking

      Tastes great however

      My MIL, her flour Tortillas were second to none, all her dishes, beans, God I miss her cooking

        We used to have an infamous restaurant here in Phoenix called the Heart Attack Grill. Advertised “old-fashioned” french fries fried in lard, and “Mexican Coca Cola (with real cane sugar!)” Had a scale inside, and if you tipped it at over 300, you got free fries with your burger. Got driven out of Phoenix by Karens, but resurrected in Vegas.

    gonzotx in reply to healthguyfsu. | August 31, 2023 at 9:12 pm

    I agree, I live in Texas and Houston has an epidemic of obesity

    For all the woke in Houston, eating celery isnt one of them

    You think your taking Barbecue and Crawdads from Texans

    Thems fighting words

    It will not end well

      SeiteiSouther in reply to gonzotx. | September 1, 2023 at 10:29 am

      “eating celery isn’t one of them.”

      I nearly spit my coffee out reading this.

      CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | September 1, 2023 at 11:28 am

      Yeah I ain’t seeing huge numbers of folks in TX being willing to volunteer giving up barbeque or brisket.

      theduchessofkitty in reply to gonzotx. | September 2, 2023 at 12:41 am

      Every steakhouse in Houston (Perry’s, Taste of Texas, etc), BBQ joint and Mexican restaurant better be on warpath against any of that nonsense.

      Throw out of office anyone in Harris County who goes along with this nonsense.

      (BTW… Where is Harris County GOP? They should have had billboards announcing this crap near every highway!)

    theduchessofkitty in reply to healthguyfsu. | September 2, 2023 at 12:42 am

    No one denies themselves a steak or a burrito around here. Not even a breakfast taquito.

Morning Sunshine | August 31, 2023 at 5:27 pm

i bet they prosecute the blackmarket meat dealer harder than they do a meth or fentanyl dealer….

Former vegitarian. Now we know why you have a fat ass!

I suspect that as the realization dawns on folks that these insane plans are going to have actual consequences v abstract, aspirational virtue signaling that folks will notice. It’s all fun and games until the bill comes due, then things get serious.

      ‘Not in my backyard’ said Martha’s Vineyard when DeSantis sent a single bus load of illegal aliens to their ‘sanctuary’. When the dream becomes a reality sometimes it turns into a living nightmare that folks don’t want.

    not_a_lawyer in reply to CommoChief. | August 31, 2023 at 9:25 pm

    The problem is that the blue sanctuary cities and states will clamor so loud that they will eventually get federal bailouts, which takes red state monies to alleviate the problems that the blue brought onto themselves with their ‘insane plans’.

    Nullification of federal law is very dangerous, as history tells us vis-a-vis the civil war.

      CommoChief in reply to not_a_lawyer. | September 1, 2023 at 8:00 am

      I wouldn’t be so sure. Even if they do it would likely be with severe conditions and an appointed receiver empowered to make the structural changes necessary to stop the bleeding. Bloated pensions are the culprit in most places, siphoning off funds from the budget which leaves less for basic services. Less cops, firemen, sanitation workers and so forth means lower quality of life which in turn creates the downward spiral as residents and businesses flee. That creates a bigger budget problem as tax revenue falls lowering amounts available for basic services even more, causing even more productive folks to depart.

Former “conservative” NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is president of the C40 board.

    henrybowman in reply to Tiki. | August 31, 2023 at 6:24 pm

    He never was conservative. He was a lifelong Democrat, and a Republican for only one election, just to get on a ballot where the Republican column was empty.

      The other day I meant to type goyim, not the bean king Goya!

      Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | September 2, 2023 at 11:40 am

      It wasn’t empty, but the only competition was Herman Badillo, whereas the D primary had four very strong and well-funded candidates, so Bloomberg figured why waste the money trying to compete in the crowded lane, when with just a little money he could bulldoze his way through the fast lane.

      I voted against him twice in that primary, because I voted early on Sep-11, and then on my way home from voting for Badillo I heard about a plane crashing into the WTC and assumed it was an accident like the time a small plane crashed into the Empire State Building. Then, before I got home, I heard about the second crash and the primary was cancelled. So two weeks later I got to vote for Badillo again.

Yeah, the transportation issue will go over well in the rural areas.

E Howard Hunt | August 31, 2023 at 6:15 pm

No keto the city on this list.

Citizens should consider instead participating in the elimination (non-violent, Mr. Fed) of the idiot politicians supporting this by tomorrow.

Cut road use? Cut dairy and meat consumption in blue cities?
No long, drawn-out Democrat plans needed.
Conservative truckers can make this happen TOMORROW.
Just say the word, you profiles in courage.

Austin and Houston???

That’s Funny!!!

There are more barbecue smoke houses in those two cities than there are McDonald’s

The question to ask: If all of America adopted this [fill in the blank] proposal, how great would be the reduction in expected rise in average temperature?

In other words, is the cost (inconvenience, reduction in quality of life) worth the benefit (reduction in global temperature rise)?

No one should be accepting these proposed measures w/o the answer.

    Suburban Farm Guy in reply to Arnoldn. | August 31, 2023 at 8:14 pm

    Much as we wish public policy was grounded in common sense, logic and evidence, what we’re up against is a means to power for some and a religion for their useful idiots, who know scandalously little about science. They’re extra bent. Evidence means nothing except time to move the goalposts

Through a variety of court cases going back 200-years, The Court has held that ‘freedom of movement’ is a federal civil right. Given all that jurisprudence, I wonder how the court would receive a case that challenges a prohibition on private transportation. If the government forces citizen to only use public transportation, is there really ‘freedom of movement?”

Not in my opinion. But, nobody has nominated me to be on the Supreme Court.

    LeftWingLock in reply to TargaGTS. | August 31, 2023 at 7:52 pm

    Roberts will say that taking away people’s cars is kinda like a tax. So he’ll say its legal.

      Not just the rural area, but the ever widening suburbs. You see the effect of an ever growing city like Austin 20 miles outside in every direction.

    George_Kaplan in reply to TargaGTS. | August 31, 2023 at 9:09 pm

    Just because something is legal doesn’t mean it’s affordable. If the cities turn parking spots into EV charge points and put 4 figure fines on unlawful parking …

    henrybowman in reply to TargaGTS. | August 31, 2023 at 9:28 pm

    The precedents are not good.
    Though “freedom to travel” is a right, “freedom to travel by motor vehicle” is not.
    (I guess you can walk as far and as long as you like.)

      Having unrestrained trade most definitely ~is~ a right. If you restrict how you do your trade, you’re restraining it. If you need to travel to trade….

        henrybowman in reply to coyote. | September 2, 2023 at 5:53 pm

        Doesn’t square with the zero enforcement pushback we see against California’s recent banning of all freight trucks more than N years old. Looks like “motor freight freedom” gets as little fed luv as personal motor freedom.

      CommoChief in reply to henrybowman. | September 1, 2023 at 11:32 am

      IDK, gonna be some hefty refunds for all the various taxes used to build and maintain the public roads if folks are functionally precluded from using them as intended.

    WestRock in reply to TargaGTS. | September 1, 2023 at 5:34 am

    They are already working on it. The prices of both new and used vehicles are up to where the average workers approaching retirement or already on fixed income have to choose between a car and necessities.

    I’ve believed this as being a key part of their plan for quite a while now. A lot of their silly little annoying regulations, when taken together, will force people to move to large planned cities where they can control us by shutting off services and other means.

    This is all about control and it seems to me they want to open us in like a flock of sheep or a herd of cattle.

Another one I find hilarious is New Orleans.

That’s right, New Orleans is going to stop eating meat in seven years.

This will quietly disappear without further notice or action by the virtue-signalling administrations of those two Texas cities.

You know it only applies to the little people. Let them eat vegetarian cake with lousy fake chocolate frosting.

Isn’t Agenda 2030 supposed to be a conspiracy theory?

George_Kaplan | August 31, 2023 at 9:33 pm

So the progressive target is ~44 grams or 1.5 ounces of meat per person per day?

The Cancer Council says red meat should be limited to 3-4 times a week and no more than 700 grams (raw weight) per week. That translates to 36,400 grams per year or ~100 grams per day. BUT they recommend fish, chicken, and legumes on other days.

The Australian Heart Foundation (not sure why they’re quoted in what I’m reading – oh apparently it’s an NSW-AU site) say a limit of less than 350g per week for unprocessed beef, lamb, pork and veal. That’s 1-3 lean red meat meals a week.

Dietary guidelines recommend 455g cooked (600-700g raw weight) of lean red meat per week which means 1x 65g cooked100g raw portion if you’re eating red meat every night of the week, or double that if eating every single day.

Women and girls are already at the bottom end of the recommended meat consumption range which is problematic given their increased iron requirements. By contrast men tend to overindulge.

Seems like the Regressive goal is dangerously unhealthy eating. Not quite the Auschwitz diet, but getting there.

As for dairy, adults aged 19-50 are encouraged to consume 2.5 servings of milk, cheese, yoghurt, and-alternatives (whatever they may be) each day, with older adults and especially women needing more to maintain muscle mass and bone strength. Hmm noticing a pattern here?

A cup of milk (250mL) or 40g of hard cheese is considered a single serving of dairy so 100g of hard cheese per day, or 2.5 cups of milk (625 mL)

Regressives want folk limited to 400 cups or 90,000 grams per year yet the recommended dairy intake is 912.5 cups of milk per year, or 36,500 grams of hard cheese.

Okay fine, it’s doable if you’re a cheese eating surrender monkey, but if you like milk on your breakfast cereal, milkshakes, or ice cream, you’re out of luck.

Screw this. I live in the good old US of A, and we don’t use the metric system. If it isn’t in pounds and ounces, I’m not interested.

Given all the carbon dioxide people exhale, I think a “meat” exception should be made for Soylent Green.

LibraryGryffon | August 31, 2023 at 11:37 pm

Lots of meat and dairy along with walking and intermittent facing have lost me nearly 40 pounds in 6 months. So only 35 to go. I can guarantee that cutting meat and dairy out completely would have had me gaining that much, even counting calories. And my daughter can’t eat nuts or legumes so I’m not sure how they think she’d get her protein. I assume they’ll be bringing MAID south of the border, and tell her they can’t do anything except help her off herself.

These people need to just disappear from the face of the earth, and I don’t much care how it happens. Just soon please.

The C40 comrades should show some real commitment. Bloomberg and Soros should vow to stop using private transportation or eating meat and dairy. If anyone catches them violating the oath, Bloomberg and Soros pledge that they will pay the one catching them $100,000 within 3 days. If they are not committed, then they are not serious.

    Capitalist-Dad in reply to InEssence. | September 1, 2023 at 9:41 am

    The C40 comrades get all the light, heat, private limos, private jets, mansions, and gourmet food—including red meat and dairy or anything else—they can possibly desire. The gulag diet is for the peasants. That’s how these despots always work—and why us peasants should set a goal of 0% of them as soon as possible.

How do we get rid of any Soros influence?

The leftwing dimwits who think they are going to change the climate are the equivalent to a fly climbing up an elephants leg with rape on his mind. When are we going to get rid of this nonsense and usher in an era of reality?

Except that once people realize the consequences, the Communists have consolidated power (see: Cuba, Venezuela, the Pacific Coast states) and there is no way to get rid of them.

Wouldn’t you think that if those cities DO impose those UNCONSTITUTIONAL constraints on people that PRICES for meat and dairy products will DECLINE?? Less for them and MORE for US!!

And stop with the “grams” crap – how many POUNDS of RED MEAT and CHEESE can I eat per day???

Rule 49,527: Better to seek forgiveness than permission.
Therefore continue as before until someone says something about it.

Eliminating cars, meat, and dairy in New Orleans? Laughable.

It’ll be a cold day in Hell before that happens.

I have a very serious question.

Based on what legal authority are these cities going to implement these restrictions?

    Milhouse in reply to chocopot. | September 2, 2023 at 11:49 am

    As far as I can tell they aren’t proposing to implement any restrictions, nor are they asserting any authority to do so. This C-40 program is entirely aspirational. They propose to explain to their citizens why they ought to reduce or eliminate their consumption of these products, and hope enough will be persuaded to achieve these goals. They don’t need any legal authority to do that.

      Auerbach PLLC in reply to Milhouse. | September 2, 2023 at 5:46 pm

      If you’re curious, take a look at the link to my tweet below. There are contractual agreements between C40 and at least the City of Philadelphia that go further. They aren’t binding but they call for the creation of “implementation pathways” between the city and C40. I have no idea what that means and we’re continuing to investigate.

A Punk Named Yunk | September 1, 2023 at 12:22 pm

I couldn’t take the time to read so G-dd–n many replies. My comment is:

Barbecue beef, chicken (and pork, unless you’re Jewish ;-)) frequently and publicly as much as you can afford to. While charcoal is still legal to manufacture & possess. As well as meat.

These people are evil and must be resisted. But the citizenry also bears some responsibility: New York City elected an incompetent lefty Democrat for mayor and a total lefty loony, criminal-loving Alvin Bragg as a DA. HOW COULD YOU PEOPLE BE SO STUPID?!!

We’ve been trying to obtain information about the City of Philadelphia’s participation in this program. We obtained some emails from the Mayor, but the City is fighting us on anything interesting with a pending administrative appeal. If somebody wants to take a look at the materials C40 sent to Philadelphia’s Mayor:
