NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio believes that climate change is a crisis.
And he wants people to be involved in fighting it.
And he’s going to make sure that every kid in a New York City believes it and is involved too.
He’s now expanding “Meatless Mondays” to all New York City public schools, starting in the fall.
From Fox News:
“Cutting back on meat a little will improve New Yorkers’ health and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement Monday.
“We’re expanding Meatless Mondays to all public schools to keep our lunch and planet green for generations to come.”
The initiative will provide the system’s one million students with all-vegetarian breakfast and lunch menus every Monday.
They test piloted the idea on 15 Brooklyn schools last year.
“The announcement that Mayor de Blasio has expanded Meatless Monday to all New York City public schools marks a major milestone. Through this united effort, New York City’s schools take a leadership role in getting our children on a healthier track, as well as making a positive impact on our environment,” said Sid Lerner, who is the founder of the Meatless Monday Movement, in a statement.
And they just started promoting it in NY’s 11 public hospitals in January.
Way to indoctrinate kids. Now it will be in their heads all the time.
When it wouldn’t mean one darn thing to changing anything about climate.
And what about those poor kids who may only have one real meal a day?
But they’re not trying to take your meat away, no sir.
