L.A. councilman links burgers to wildfires, says city should mandate vegan options to combat climate change

If Los Angeles Councilman Paul Koretz has his way, the southern California metropolis would mandate at least one vegan protein option at “all movie theaters, large-scale entertainment venues, airport restaurants, zoo concession stands and some other locations in the city,” KFI Radio reported Wednesday.  Of course, it would be done in the name of fighting so-called “climate change.”

He also managed to link hamburgers to the wildfires the area recently experienced.

According to the report:

Councilman Paul Koretz introduced a motion referencing a number of studies that point to the negative impacts the meat and dairy industry has on the environment, including a University of Oxford study that found if more people in the United States adopted plant-based eating it could cut greenhouse- gas emissions from food sources by 70 percent.

“I want to make it easier for us to do better around the city, as well as provide more options for people who are already following a plant-based diet,” Koretz said during a news conference at City Hall.

Koretz said the motion will need to be examined by the City Attorney’s Office, but he believes the move would be legal.

Naturally, Twitchy said, PETA had be reached for comment.  Ben Williamson, senior international media director for the organization, offered this nugget of alleged wisdom: “Natural disasters such as the wildfires that this great city recently suffered are a terrible reminder that we must do more to protect our planet and its inhabitants. Animal agriculture is one of the most, if not they most, significant contributor to the world’s very serous environmental problems.”

Twitter responded:

But that’s what you get when liberals decide to control the economy.

Provided, of course, by the very taxpayers who keep electing these idiots into office.

Indeed.  Make that a bacon cheese therapy burger with lots of extra bacon.


Well, this is California, which seems to have become one of the nation’s leading exporters of ‘stupid.’
