First, it was a ban on plastic grocery bags, and then on mixing recycling with compost. Now the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is asking residents to go without meat on Mondays.
This city’s latest legislative endorsement of healthy, eco-conscious living can’t stop residents from eating meat, but is meant to call attention to the relationship between diet, health and climate change.
Yeah, it’s just a “suggestion”, but “suggestions” from the government have a funny way of becoming “law”.
I’m all for raising awareness of the effects of climate change, but I’d rather the powers-that-be focus on the vehicles and factories that are constantly belching toxins into the air than on peoples’ meal choices.
Up next: a complete and total Ban on Brussels Sprouts to cut down on deadly methane.
