New York City to Cut Carbon Emissions from Food by 33%. Industrial Meat Is Targeted.

Mayor Eric Adams, Wiki
New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a vegan, announced the city will “reduce absolute carbon emissions from food purchases across its city agencies by 33% by 2030” to curb phony global warming. Mayor Adams challenged corporate, institutional, and nonprofit sector leaders to “join us by cutting their food emissions by 25%.” The new restrictions aim to change consumer behavior in order to achieve ‘ambitious’ climate targets.  

Summary by JW Williams

New York City (NYC) has measured citywide emissions since 2005, but it now includes emissions from household consumption. The inventory concluded that 20% of NYC’s greenhouse gas emissions come from household food consumption — primarily from meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. Authorities want New Yorkers to eat low-carbon food, including fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes, claiming that it will significantly reduce the city’s emissions.

While there is no ban on private individuals eating meat in NYC at this time, the official New York City website reported that Mayor Eric Adams, a vegan, announced that the city will “reduce absolute carbon emissions from food purchases across its city agencies by 33% by 2030” to curb phony global warming. Mayor Adams challenged corporate, institutional, and nonprofit sector leaders to “join us by cutting their food emissions by 25%.” The new restrictions aim to change consumer behavior in order to achieve ‘ambitious’ climate targets.

The Children’s Health Defense Defender reported that NYC signed on to the C40 Good Food Cities Accelerator that will expand data collection and monitoring. Signatory cities commit to changing diets by 2030; the program is funded by major corporations and philanthropic foundations that support climate activism. Lab grown meat and insect protein markets are booming. A critic pointed out that the government’s solution of replacing meat and animal products with vegan and vegetarian diets ignores regenerative farming that restores natural cycles to land that has been depleted as a result of industrial farming.
